Over the summer, there were a number of rumours flying around connecting the Vancouver Canucks' new General Manager Jim Benning to the Buffalo Sabres’ Tyler Myers. Why not? The deal makes sense, at least on the surface. You have a gigantic right-handed young defencemen that skates well, who could step in with Dan Hamhuis injured, and has the pedigree coming from being a first round pick and a Calder trophy winner only few years ago.
But is this prospective deal really one that the Canucks should explore? Read past the jump as we delve into the career of Tyler Myers.

That Cole Cassels is having a fantastic 19-year old season is old news by now to Canucks fans. Vancouver's 3rd round pick in the 2013 NHL entry draft is currently 6th in the OHL in scoring with 12 goals and 27 assists in 22 games, but he'll be missing some significant time thanks to a suspension handed out this morning by the Ontario Hockey League.
Read past the jump for a look at Cassels' suspension, and how this affects his chances at making a World Junior Championships team.

It’s been another full week of prospect activities with all
of Vancouver's players in the pipeline playing games. The OHL has surprisingly been the least productive this week while Jake Virtanen,
players in the NCAA, Europe, and the ECHL have all been very active. The World Juniors will be coming up very shortly and Hockey Canada plans to announce its camp roster soon. That being said a number of Canucks prospects have been in discussion to make their respective national team including: Horvat (CAN, but unlikely to be released from the Canucks), Virtanen (CAN), McCann (CAN), Subban (CAN), Cassels (US), Forsling (Sweden), and Demko (US).
