Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks President & General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that the Canucks have acquired defencemen Christian Ehrhoff and Brad Lukowich from the San Jose Sharks in exchange for defenceman Daniel Rahimi and forward Patrick White.

“We are pleased to be adding Christian and Brad to our defensive group,” said Mike Gillis. “Defence has been an area we wanted to add skill and depth to and this trade has strengthened our group considerably. We would like to thank both Daniel and Patrick for their commitment and efforts with our organization and we wish them both well in their careers.”

Ehrhoff, 27, recorded eight goals, 34 assists (8-34-42) and 63 penalty minutes in 77 games with the Sharks last season. Ehrhoff made his NHL debut in 2003-04 and has played 341 career regular season games, all with the Sharks, recording 132 points (25-107-132) and 244 penalty minutes. In 38 NHL Playoff games he has added 15 points (2-13-15) and 40 penalty minutes. The 6-foot-2, 205 lbs. native of Moers, Germany, was drafted by San Jose in the 4th round, 106th overall in 2001.

Lukowich, 33, played 58 games with the Sharks last season recording eight points, 12 penalty minutes and a plus/minus of +5. The Cranbrook, BC, native has played for five NHL teams over 11 seasons with Dallas, Tampa Bay, NY Islanders, New Jersey and San Jose. The 6-foot-1, 201 lbs. defenceman has played 640 regular season games, recording 111 points (22-89-111), 365 penalty minutes and is a career +38. He was originally drafted in the 4th round, 90th overall by the New York Islanders in 1994.

Daniel Rahimi was selected by the Canucks in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft while Patrick White was selected by Vancouver in 2007.
