Sabres acquire C Hodgson; deal Kassian to Canucks

BUFFALO — The Buffalo Sabres have acquired rookie center Cody Hodgson in a trade with the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for rookie forward Zack Kassian.

As part of the deal, the teams also traded defenseman with Buffalo sending Marc-Andre Gragnani to Vancouver in exchange for Alexander Sulzer.

The deal was announced by Sabres general manager Darcy Regier on Monday, and reached shortly before the NHL trade deadline.

Hodgson was the selected 10th overall in the 2008 draft and is playing his first full NHL season. Kassian is a physical forward, whom the Sabres selected 13th overall in the 2009 draft.

In a separate deal, Buffalo traded center Paul Gaustad to Nashville for a first-round draft pick this year. The Predators also acquired Buffalo's fourth-round pick in next year's draft.
