On the second day of the 2014 NHL Draft, a few teams made some small trades that will serve to bolster and transform their rosters in the offseason. While the majority of the trades involved moving draft picks, a few players did find themselves with new teams by the end of the draft.

In exchange for their 50th overall pick, the Vancouver Canucks got forward Linden Vey, who spent the past three seasons with the AHLs Manchester Monarchs. In 43 games played in 2013-14, Vey totaled 14 goals and 34 assists. In 18 games played with the Kings last season, he did not score any goals, but tallied five assists. Vey played junior hockey in Medicine Hat under newly hired Vancouver Canucks coach Willie Desjardins. The Los Angeles Kings simply did not have room on the roster for Vey anymore and deemed him expendable. He will get a better chance to play and develop with the sort of rebuilding Vancouver Canucks. The Kings used the acquired Canucks pick to select Roland Mckeown.
