added 5:01pm, Vancouver release is below.

Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the Canucks have acquired forward Jonathan Dahlen from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Alex Burrows.

"Jonathan is a very skilled player with natural goal scoring instincts," said General Manager Jim Benning. "He's had a terrific season playing in Sweden and was a big part of Sweden's offence at the World Juniors. His offensive upside combined with his willingness to go to difficult areas of the ice will make him a valuable player for our organization moving forward."

"We would also like to thank Alex, Nancy and their three children for their incredible commitment to this team and community for over a decade," continued Benning. "Alex is a consummate professional and has been a leader for us throughout his career in Vancouver. We wish him and his family the very best."

Dahlen, 19, has registered 41 points (24-17-41) with Timra of Sweden-2 this season. The 5-11, 176-pound forward registered six points (5-1-6) in seven games for Sweden at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship. He also led Sweden in scoring at the 2016 Ivan Hlinka under-17 tournament with five points (4-1-5) in five games.

A native of Ostersund, Sweden, Dahlen was selected by Ottawa in the second round, 42nd overall, at the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

Looks like 2 x 2.5 for burrows in Ottawa

That’s the kind of contract Helm should have been offered – not five years @ $3.85M.
