The Edmonton Oilers have traded to the rights of Philip Larsen to the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for a conditional fifth-round pick in 2017.

The 26-year-old defenceman is currently playing in the KHL, where he has 12 goals and 38 points in 54 games with Jokerit Helsinki.

TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie reports the fifth-round pick could become a fourth-round pick if Larsen hits specified production thresholds.

McKenzie adds the Canucks plan to sign Larsen when free agency opens this summer and have him spend the 2016-17 season with the club.
