Welcome to this week's Canucks weekly prospect report, in which it seems like the Comets have been playing the exact same as the Canucks as they have not yet won a game in 2014. Then again, with all of the recalls to the Vancouver
Comets Canucks one can't expect too much else.
There's still good news in the other leagues, though, so make sure to keep on reading. As always, follow @nuckprospects on Twitter for the latest in prospect news and feed free to send me any feedback on anything prospect related you wish me to cover.

Welcome to this week's version of the Canucks Prospect Report.. it feels as if I haven't been able to update you since last year! This will be the first of hopefully 52 more prospect reports in 2014, and the players in question have been very busy post-Christmas.

In a surprise move it was recently reported that the Canucks have placed prospect defenceman Adam Polasek on unconditional waivers to have him bought out. While there is little in terms of reports on this, it would appear to be a similar situation to Zack Hamill where Polasek had his contract bought out as he was not happy sitting in the ECHL and is looking to play elsewhere.

T'was the day before Christmas, and all through the smylosphere, not a blogger was stirring, except maybe @joshweissbock ...
While Christmas is here, most of hockey is quieting down, but not all the prospects are idle. This week's prospect report is a bit shorter than normal but it's just as full of prospect #fancystats including the first ever Estimated Usage Chart for any league outside of the NHL.
