A few months back, I was surprised to find out that CoHo Apparel was a real thing. But by all accounts it appears to in no way be some sort of stunt or prank, which is definitely interesting; you figure that someone in the operation would've stopped and thought to themselves "hmm, maybe we should avoid referring to our star's female fans as 'CoHoes'. If we can avoid it we should stay away from that sort of unfortunate wordplay being associated with our brand." 

Nope. That obviously didn't happen, and as a result we've been blessed with the unintentional comedy that is Cody Hodgson's clothing line as the former Canuck's epic string of PR blunders continues to truck along.

I guess you could draw some parallels between that and Hodgson's team, the Buffalo Sabres, who themselves are also filled with unintentional comedy, while seeming that they shouldn't really be a thing even though they technically are.

They'll visit Vancouver to play the Canucks on Sunday night, and if you're leaning towards indulging in some March Madness action over this barnburner I wouldn't hold it against you. But for those of you loyal bunch that'll tune in, let's get to the preview..

Throwing a wet blanket on Nicklas Jensen - Weekend Watchability Index

Earlier this week, Ben Kuzma detailed rookie winger Nicklas Jensen as "an exclamation mark" "determined" "far from an overnight sensation" "cool" with an "all-around awareness and presence."

It seems that people have begun pencilling in Jensen to the Canucks' top six next season, a top six that's painfully lacking in young bodies. Jensen has three goals and five points in just seven games this season and has arguably been the Canucks best player since his call-up.

Nifty bit of "Gill-nalysis" by @NucksWatch

With the Canucks having a couple days off between games (they don't play again until Sunday afternoon v. Buffalo, and I'm not totally convinced that should actually even count), I figured I'd use this as an opportunity to dust off and bring back the ol' Afternoon Headshots. 

I've gone ahead and compiled a list of some of the more interesting nuggets of goodness I've come across on the interwebs recently, in the hopes that it'll spark some conversation and maybe even shed some light on a thing or two that you haven't come across yourself already.

Now most of my hockey fantasies include Jordan Eberle, a bottle of sherry, a roaring fire and a DVD of All Dogs Go To Heaven. So when I heard about a video called the Fantasy Minute I was understandably excited.

Today we are introducing the Fantasy Minute but be forewarned - it's about fantasy hockey not necessarily fantasies about hockey. Oh and the mega babe host. No big deal.

With the recent infusion of Jensen into the Vancouver Comets Canucks fans of the team have had something to be excited for as we head towards (hopefully) the draft lottery. Ideally with some good, tactful positioning in this year's draft and some smart choices by the GM (whomever that may be) there's a very real possibility that we'll have a nice collection of young players to monitor closely next year.  

But before we get there, we still have plenty to discuss with the current crop of prospects in the system. Continue past the jump to read the latest in Comets Militia updates, the OHL, and the NCAA (along with some other notes coming from the WHL, ECHL, and Europe). 

As always, feel free to follow me on Twitter @nuckprospects for the latest in prospect news. You're more than welcome to send me any feedback on anything prospect related you wish for me to cover in the future.
