The Vancouver Canucks have acquired goaltender Spencer Martin from the Tampa Bay Lightning for future considerations.

Martin appeared in 15 games for the AHL’s Syracuse Crunch last season, posting a 7-5-2 record along with a 2.83 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage.

In 173 appearances over six AHL seasons with Syracuse, Colorado and San Antonio, Martin has a career record of 68-74-18 with a 3.00 GAA, a .902 save percentage and nine shutouts.

A third-round pick by Colorado in the 2013 NHL Draft, Martin made his NHL debut in 2016-17 and made three appearances with the Avalanche (0-2-1, 4.35, .865).
