Darcy Hordichuk Traded to Florida for Andrew Peters

True to his word, Mike Gillis has found an NHL home for Darcy Hordichuk sending him to Florida in exchange for heavyweight Andrew Peters.

Peters isn't much of a player, but he fills the role of the organization's resident tough guy. He is on a cheap two way contract (500k/75k) which also means that he is not subject to recall waivers, so the Canucks can move him up from Manitoba freely.

In other news, both Jeff Tambellini and Ryan Parent cleared waivers and will report to Manitoba.
