Pittsburgh, PA, United States (4E Sports) - The Pittsburgh Penguins have traded forward Brandon Sutter and a conditional third-2016 round pick to the Vancouver Canucks for three players.

The Penguins will get forward Nick Bonino , defenseman Adam Clendening and a second-round pick in 2016.

The 26-year-old Sutter had 21 goals and 12 assists in 80 games last season and one goal and one assist in five Stanley Cup Playoff games.

A first-round pick by the Carolina Hurricanes in 2007, Sutter has 98 goals and 87 assists in 495 regular-season games between the Penguins and Hurricanes, and eight goals and four assists in 33 playoff games.

The 27-year-old Bonino had 15 goals and 24 assists in 75 games for the Canucks last season and one goal and two assists in six playoff games.

A sixth-round pick by the San Jose Sharks in 2007, Bonino has 48 goals and 73 assists in 264 games between the Canucks and Anaheim Ducks.

"I think Brandon and Nick, they have different skill sets," Canucks general manager Jim Benning said. "Brandon Sutter is a good two-way player. He's a matchup guy and brings us speed through the middle of the ice and I think he solidifies our center ice."
