NHL trade rumors: Canucks acquire center J.T. Miller from Lightning

The Vancouver Canucks have reportedly acquired center J.T. Miller from the Tampa Bay Lightning, according to Lightning reporter Caley Chelios.

In return, the Lightning will get goaltender Marek Mazanec, a conditional first-round pick in 2020 and a third-round selection in 2019. That conditional first-round pick in 2020 would move to the 2021 draft if the Canucks don’t make the playoffs next season.

A first-round pick of the New York Rangers in 2011, Miller joined the Lightning via a trade in February 2018. He had 13 goals and 34 assists in 75 games last season.

The 26-year-old Miller signed a five-year deal worth $5.25 million per season in 2018.

The report of the pending trade came shortly after news broke that the Nashville Predators had traded P.K. Subban to the New Jersey Devils. The Canucks had been viewed as a possible trade destination for the star defenseman.
