The Vancouver Canucks have put in a waiver claim on forward Brandon McMillan, most recently of the Arizona Coyotes, the club announced on Thursday.

McMillan, 24, hails from Delta, B.C., and has spent the early years of his hockey career bouncing between the American Hockey League and the NHL. This season he's been a mainstay with the goaltending challenged Coyotes managing a goal and two assists in 50 games.

The Vancouver Canucks throttled the Chicago Blackhawks for 40 minutes on Wednesday night before they took their foot off the gas in the third. 

In the final frame the script was flipped, as the Canucks hung on for dear life against a bona fide Stanley Cup contender. It didn't go well for them, as they Blackhawks managed a pair of late goals to tie the contest and send it to overtime. 

Thankfully Daniei and Henrik Sedin were able to pull off some vintage Sedinery and secure a crucial extra point for their club. No harm done, at least.
