Tampa Bay, FL (NNCNOW.com) --- Former University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) defenseman Jason Garrison was traded from the Vancouver Canucks to the Tampa Bay Lightning, it was announced on Friday.

The 29-year-old was sent in a package deal with the rights to forward Jeff Costello and a seventh-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft in exchange for the Lightning's second-round pick (No. 50) in this year's draft.

Garrison had seven goals and 33 points in 81 games during the 2013-14 season in Vancouver. He has four years remaining on his contract after waiving his no-move clause.

During his time at UMD, Garrison appeared in 142 games and tallied nine goals and 20 assists.
