Hockey is coming! That means the return of hockey content! We'll be writing a lot of things on Canucks Army this year; hundreds of articles, of which you'll probably enjoy about four or five. With that comes a fancy schedule that will ensure that you never miss a moment of the action, which kicks into place starting next week.

Going into the 2015 Young Stars Classic in Penticton, the talk of the town was Oilers’ gift and future superstar Connor McDavid. To be sure, he didn’t disappoint. In the single game he played, he showed flashes of what is to come, though he was limited to a powerplay assist and a flimsy first goal.

If you’re a Canucks fan, you were probably more interested in Jake Virtanen, Jared McCann and Cole Cassels - three of their most hyped prospects, all of which missed last year’s tournament with various ailments. And again, while they have been impressive in their own rights - Virtanen with his trademark murderous physicality and breakaway speed, and McCann with his patented wrist shot - the Canucks most impressive player for my money has been Jordan Subban, in his third Young Stars appearance.

While Subban has always been flashy, he’s been consistently dismissed to some degree due largely to his size - at 5-foot-9, he doesn’t have many professional comparables. Going into his third season in the Canucks organization, though, Subban is demonstrating an unyielding determination to overcome the odds.
