Canes acquire Fox from Canucks

The Carolina Hurricanes announced Monday the team has acquired forward Dane Fox from the Vancouver Canucks in exchange for future considerations. Fox will immediately join the Charlotte Checkers, Carolina’s American Hockey League affiliate.

Fox, 22, is in his second professional season, most of it with the Kalamazoo Wings of the ECHL. He leads Kalamazoo skaters in goals (26), points (50) and penalty minutes (87), appearing in 53 games this season.

Fox signed with Vancouver as an undrafted free agent on Dec. 28, 2013, during his final season of junior hockey with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League.
