Islanders acquire Vanek from Sabres

The New York Islanders have acquired left wing Thomas Vanek from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for left wing Matt Moulson, a 2014 first-round draft pick and a 2015 second-round draft pick.

Vanek, 29, played in 13 games with Buffalo this season, registering four goals and five assists for nine points.

The Vienna, Austria native has played nine NHL seasons, totaling 254 goals and 243 assists for 497 points with a plus-29 rating in 598 career games. Vanek had a career year in 2006-07, averaging over a point per game with 84 points (43 goals and 41 assists) in 82 games, while leading the NHL in plus/minus rating with a plus-47 rating.

The Sabres selected Vanek in the first round (fifth overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.

Moulson, who turns 30 on Nov. 1, has tallied six goals and three assists for nine points in 11 games with the Islanders this season.

In 333 career NHL regular-season games with the Los Angeles Kings and Islanders, Moulson has accumulated 124 goals and 109 assists for 233 points, along with 62 penalty minutes.

Prior to last season's shortened campaign, due to the lockout, Moulson scored 30 or more goals in three straight seasons.

The native of North York, Ontario, was originally drated by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the ninth-round (263rd overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
