It has been a busy weekend for the Vancouver Canucks who late Saturday night pulled off a trade with the Carolina Hurricanes and on Sunday announced a four-year contract extension for winger Jannik Hansen.

Hansen received the same four-year $10-million deal fellow winger Chris Higgins signed with the team this past spring.

“Jannik is in his prime he is moving in the right direction he’s a good solid player” Gillis said Sunday at Rogers Arena. “He kills penalties he can move up and down your lineup he’s fast. I thought he had a good season last year in a shortened year and he is a player we have got under contract for the terms that we wanted.”
