Canucks add defenseman Brookbank
Brookbank will be assigned to Vancouver's AHL team in Manitoba on Friday if he clears waivers.
The 6-foot-4, 225-pound Brookbank had zero points and 38 penalty minutes in nine games for the Predators as a rookie this season. He also has six penalty minutes in six games in the AHL.
Brookbank was originally signed as a free agent by the Ottawa Senators during 2001, then was claimed by Nashville in this year's waiver draft.
He played in four minor leagues over six seasons, with more than 300 penalty minutes in each of three seasons.
