I'm back with another weekly schedule, checking out what's to come in the week ahead for all the Canucks players, affiliates and prospects, as well as a few games to take note of that involve both Canucks prospects and players eligible for the 2017 NHL draft, for those looking to kill two or more birds with one stone in your viewings.
Lets jump right into it.

Yesterday, Jackson McDonald kicked off our Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Rankings, chronicling the progression of Michael Carcone and Ashton Sautner, which we have deemed the 20th and 19th best prospects in the Vancouver system, respectively.
Welcome to part two of the Midterm Rankings, in which we will look deeper into the Vancouver Canucks' 18th and 17th ranked prospects.

As expected, the Canucks have recalled defenceman Andrey Pedan from the Utica Comets. The move comes on the heels of a pair of injuries to Canucks defencemen, as both Chris Tanev and Ben Hutton missed the last game in Calgary.
This is Pedan's third recall already this season, and he has yet to play a game. Will he see action this time around? I wouldn't hold my breath.

So I've taken a bit of a winter vacation when it comes to my duties as the Utica Comets correspondent, which makes that this issue is going to cover a three-week span in which the Comets played seven games. I'll condense bits here and there to try and prevent a feature that's already pretty wordy from getting too bloated.
Of interest over this period of time was the conditioning stint of Anton Rodin, who finally played his first professional regular season game in North American since 2013, after spending three seasons in his native Sweden.
Aside from that, Alex Grenier, Curtis Valk and Jordan Subban continued to put up some points, while Thatcher Demko struggled mightily and the Comets' losing streak hit nine games.
