The Canucks went into their training camps this year with a very bare roster, keeping invitees to a minimum. This is not common; often, the invitation system is used as a platform by NHL front offices to get their eyes on talent that they might want to add to the roster. Jim Benning might make us scratch our heads with some of his management decisions, but he does have an eye for talent.  This makes the few players he did invite much more desirable to keep tabs on. 

Outside of Utica Comets skaters the Canucks only invited 4 players to the camp: Rodrigo Abols, Jon Martin, Reid Gardiner and Jackson Whistle. Given their draft status, it isn't possible to sign them now; they must be drafted in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. They'd be older picks if the Canucks were to take a chance, but let's take a look at how they have been performing in their first month back in the CHL.
