VANCOUVER - Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis made a splash prior to the trade deadline Monday.Just before Dan McCullers Jersey the 3 p.m. ET deadline, the Canucks GM shipped rookie centre Cody Hodgson to the Buffalo Sabres for winger Zack Ka sian. Both are former first-round draft choices.The Canucks also sent rarely used defenceman Alexander Sulzer to the Sabres for defenceman Marc-Andre Gragnani as part of the four-player deal."It's a new opportunity and we'll see what happens," Hodgson, 21, told TSN shortly after the deal was reported. "But I have mixed emotions."Ironically, Hodgson and Sulzer were walking back to the Canucks' hotel in Glendale, Ariz., when they learned of the trade.Hodgson's departure ends a sometimes turbulent Tyson Alualu Jersey relationship with the Canucks. After the 21-year-old Toronto native was drafted by Vancouver in the first round in 2008 (10th overall), he suffered a back injury during a team-supervised off-ice training se sion in 2009.When Hodgson struggled in the 2009 preseason, coach Alain Vigneault questioned the seriousne s of the injury.But the problem went undiagnosed for months, forcing Hodgson to mi s most of his final junior season with the Brampton Batallion of the OHL and also caused him to mi s playing a second time for Canada's world junior team. The injury was finally diagnosed Rocky Bleier Jersey as a torn muscle prior to the 2010-11 season, which he split with the Canucks and their former AHL farm team in Manitoba before becoming a mainstay this season."I'm Robert Golden Jersey still very shocked right now," said Hodgson.Ka sian, a 21-year-old Windsor, Ont., native, has three goals and four a sists in 27 games with the Sabres this season, his first in the NHL. He was drafted 13th overall by Buffalo in 2009.
