Canucks make trade with River East

The St. James Jr. Canucks have traded defenceman Darren Chrisp to the River East Royal Knights in exchange for forward Curtis Rebeck.

This season, Rebeck, 18, suited up for 13 games with the Winnipeg Blues of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, recording one assist. In the two years prior to that, he put up 26 goals and 38 assists for 64 points in 92 games with the Winnipeg Thrashers Midget AAA. In his second year with the Thrashers, he was nearly a point per game player with 40 points in 48 games.

Chrisp, 18, was in his first season with the Canucks and had a goal and three assists in 15 games. In the two years prior to his MMJHL rookie campaign, Chrisp played with the Parkland Rangers Midget AAA.

The Canucks want to thank Darrin for his commitment to the team and the organization both on and off the ice and wish him the best of luck in his hockey career and all of his future endeavors.

The Canucks are back in game action Sunday, Jan 13 when they host the Pembina Valley Twisters.
