I've got another complete Canucks schedule for you fine people, and this one includes a pair of special games that occur tonight - the CHL Top Prospects Game and the AHL All-Star game. There are plenty of other games to watch this week, and lots of prospects to keep track of. Come have a look!

It's the moment you've all been waiting for: we're finally unveiling our pick for the Vancouver Canucks' top prospect! If you've been following along, it should be pretty obvious at this point who it's going to be - I mean, everyone knows who the high end guys are here, so it's just process of elimination, right? Right.
This guy is a natural goal scorer, and could be a contributor in the big club's lineup sooner rather than later. He's the sniper we've all been waiting for. You know who I'm talking about. Vancouver's top prospect could be none other than..
Okay, no, it's not him. And there's a special place in hell for whichever of you voted him number one in the Reader's Poll.
It's Brock Boeser dammit.

If you blinked you might have missed it, but don't look away now - the Comets are suddenly a powerhouse.
Travis Green's AHL club is giving new meaning to the term streaky. After winning seven out of nine games, the Comets proceeded to lose nine straight - and now they've won eight of their last nine. This isn't a strategy that I'd recommend using long term, but it seems to be working for them right now, so why not just enjoy it?
There's been hot goaltending and prospects getting points (even Virtanen!), league honours, first-time call ups, and some awesome new novelty jerseys revealed. Everything's coming up rosy in Utica.

16 prospects down, and four to go. We're in to a selection of players that could make an impact with the Canucks in the very near future, if they were just given an opportunity.
In fact, today's prospect is already on the big club's roster, having just recently received his first NHL call up, though he's yet to make his NHL debut, and there's no guarantee that it's coming soon. Nevertheless, we remain high on this offensive defenceman.

It's Monday, which means it's a new week, which means you need another complete Canucks schedule to see what the Canucks, their affiliates, and their prospects are up to this week.
There's a bit of a lull in the first half of the week, so you'll get to focus on the Canucks taking on the NHL's two worst teams. The big club will get some time off this weekend and into next week, so there will be plenty of time to keep an eye how the future Canucks are doing.
