We are back with this week’s Comets Militia where we review all the latest in news, statistics, rumours, gossip and made up narratives on the Vancouver Canucks farm team: The Utica Comets.  It’s been a reasonably good for the Comets as they won 2 of 3 games missing that third game in a tired leg of a back-to-back.

Welcome back to this weeks Comets Milita report as we review all of the activities of the Utica Comets and the Canucks prospects down in the AHL.  It's been an active week for the Comets as their d-corps is currently a number of ECHLers as they withstand the domino effects of NHL call-ups.  Still, the Comets managed 4 of 6 points this week and are looking good as we head into the last 1/3rd of the season in the final march towards the Calder Cup

(Editor's Note: This edition was written before Friday's game and the results of that game will be written about next week)

So this year, in our mid-term ranking, we gave you the chance to vote on prospects and have a say on these players.  Since our summer rankings, we've simplified the definition of "prospect" to any player in the Vancouver Canucks' system that is eligible for the Calder Trophy if they were to play in the NHL this year.  This means that players like Linden Vey and Joacim Eriksson who were not rated over the summer will be covered in this series.

Without further ado, here is our top rated Canucks Prospect
