Canucks acquire Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Conor Garland from Coyotes in 5 player trade plus draft pick

The Vancouver Canucks are sending Jay Beagle, Loui Eriksson, Antoine Roussel, the ninth-overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft, a second-rounder next year and a seventh-round pick to the Arizona Coyotes for defenceman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and forward Conor Garland.

The Coyotes will retain 12 per cent of Ekman-Larsson’s salary.

Ekman-Larsson, 30, has spent the past 11 years with the Coyotes, serving as the club’s captain for the past three. The Karlskrona, Sweden native has finished near or above the 40-point plateau from the back end six times over the course of his career, his best year being a 55-point effort back in 2015-16.

In 2020-21, Ekman-Larsson posted 24 points through 46 games, and averaged 20:58 minutes of ice per night.

Garland, 25, has amassed 47 goals through his first three NHL seasons, and posted 39 points through 49 games in 2020-21.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
