The Carolina Hurricanes have wasted very little time in restructuring their roster after the National Hockey League season ended, and they swung another move on Wednesday night by acquiring Erik Haula from the Vegas Golden Knights in exchange for prospect Nicolas Roy, according to The Athletic.

The 28-year-old Haula played in only 15 games this season after missing the final 67 and all seven playoff games with a major knee injury suffered on November 6.

He had 29 goals and 55 points in 76 games in Vegas' inaugural season after coming over in the expansion draft.

Roy, a fourth-round selection by the Hurricanes in the 2015 NHL Draft, made six appearances for Carolina last season. He had nine points in 20 playoff games. He tallied 17 goals and 36 regular-season points for the Checkers before adding 15 points in 19 postseason games as Charlotte captured the Calder Cup.
