Sven Baertschi has been called up by the Vancouver Canucks.

Baertschi will be available for Game 4, but it's not clear if he'll play in that contest. Baertschi was traded from Vancouver's current first round opponent, the Calgary Flames, in exchange for a 2015 second round pick back in March. Baertschi has potential, but he struggled to find his footing within the Flames' organization, so the hope was that a change of scenery would be beneficial. He has seven goals and 15 points in 15 AHL contests since the trade.

The Vancouver Canucks have assigned Sven Baertschi to the AHL.

The Vancouver Canucks have summoned Sven Baertschi.

Baertschi has 15 goals and 38 points in 48 AHL contests in 2014-15. He also has four assists in 15 games with the Calgary Flames. He was acquired by Vancouver on March 2 in exchange for a second-round pick. He was selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, but he was struggling to find his place in the Flames' organization, so the change of scenery was probably for the best.
Apr 3 - 1:41 PM

Sven Baertschi is excited to be joining the Vancouver Canucks' organization.

Vancouver acquired Baertschi from Calgary in exchange for a second round pick.

He'll stay in the minors for now, but this is an opportunity for him to start fresh with a new organization. "I'm in their plans and they were excited that they got me," said Baertschi. "When you hear somebody say they want you to be there and want you in the organization, that's great to have. It really seems they believe in me."
