NHL Trade Review: Canucks Acquire Dickinson

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired forward Jason Dickinson from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a 2021 third-round draft pick.

The expansion draft has caused a bunch of trades today and this is one of them. Dickinson is a good defensive, bottom-six player. He is a guy that the Stars normally would not want to lose. But, he was the odd-man out and headed to Seattle. With this deal, they are able to get some value for him. A third-rounder is basically market value. Dickinson does not have a contract for 2021-22 as a restricted free agent and the pick is 73rd overall. This is a fair deal for both sides as the Canucks, who desperately need cheaper, better bottom-six options, get one here. Dickinson was a first-round pick all the way back in 2013.

Dickinson, 26, scored seven goals with eight assists for 15 points in 51 games for the Stars in 2020-21. In his NHL career, all in Dallas, Dickinson has scored 25 goals with 38 assists for 63 points in 221 games.
