VERNON, B.C. (CP) - Being traded to the Vancouver Canucks was a rude awakening for defenceman Lukas Krajicek.

Krajicek was at home in Prostejov, Czech Republic, when he learned he was part of the blockbuster deal that sent goaltender Roberto Luongo to Vancouver for forward Todd Bertuzzi, defenceman Bryan Allen and goalie Alex Auld.

"I woke up about five in the morning and my dad told me I was traded," Krajicek said before taking the ice on Saturday's second day of the Canucks training camp. "It was kind of weird.

"I was surprised and kind of happy. There is a much bigger chance to play in the playoffs here than in Florida."
