Sharks Acquire C Patrick White and D Daniel Rahimi from Canucks

SAN JOSE, Calif.
-- San Jose Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson announced Friday that the team has acquired center Patrick White and defenseman Daniel Rahimi from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for defensemen Christian Ehrhoff and Brad Lukowich.

“This trade speaks to the confidence we have in the young players coming up through our system who have earned the right to compete for a spot on this team,” said Wilson. “It also creates some flexibility in our team payroll for potential future transactions as the season progresses and adds two more talented players to our reserve list that can help this organization in the future.”

White, 20, was selected by Vancouver in the first round (25th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and most recently completed his second season at the University of Minnesota, where he posted 16 points (seven goals, nine assists) in 36 games.

The six-foot-one, 190 pound native of Grand Rapids, Minnesota played 12 games with Tri-City of the USHL in 2006-07, collecting nine points (eight goals, one assist) after completing a stellar high school career at Grand Rapids High School in Minnesota.

Rahimi (RA-hih-mee) spent the last two seasons with the Manitoba Moose. Last season, the blueliner chipped in six points (one goal, five assists) and 49 penalty minutes in 58 games. The six-foot-three, 220-pound native of Umea, Sweden was selected by Vancouver in the third round (82nd overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

Ehrhoff, selected by San Jose in the fourth round (106th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, posted 132 points (25 goals, 107 assists) and 244 penalty minutes in 341 NHL games, all with San Jose.

Lukowich, acquired on July 4, 2008 along with Dan Boyle from the Tampa Bay Lightning, posted eight points (all assists) in 58 games with San Jose.

“Christian and Brad were both great members of the Sharks family on- and off-the-ice,” said Wilson. “We thank them and their families for their contributions to our organization and wish them all the best moving forward.”
