Lee Nguyen's search for a stable club situation will be taking him to Vancouver.

The Vancouver Whitecaps acquired Nguyen via a weighted lottery on Thursday. The Whitecaps were the odds-on favorite to acquire the 25-year-old attacker. The other teams who entered the lottery were Real Salt Lake, Toronto FC, the Houston Dynamo, FC Dallas and the Los Angeles Galaxy.

As a result of winning the lottery for Nguyen, Vancouver is not allowed to parktake in any other player lotteries during the 2012 season.

How do you see Nguyen faring in Vancouver? Happy to see him land to the Whitecaps? Have any good Nguyen puns?
