Some prospect news has emerged from the woodwork this evening with the re-signing of Frank Corrado and Adam Clendening. Both were restricted players who were expected to be re-signed, and it was only a matter of days until it happened.
Corrado and Clendening are both receiving a modest raise, but were limited to signing 1-year deals and both players still face a log jam in front of them at the NHL level.
Let's take a bit deeper into these guys shall we?

It's been an interesting few weeks for Canucks fans, with the trades, contract extensions, and head office moves seeming to grab headlines and overshadow what was a pretty solid draft for the Canucks.
I'll break down the Canucks 2015 draft class in more depth after the jump.

It's been a full week since the trade that sent Kevin Bieksa to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for their second-round selection in the 2016 draft. For all the noise in the build up to this trade, things have been decidedly silent since. I guess that was to be expected, given that nobody was surprised when the other shoe finally dropped.
By that same token, it seems almost a little inappropriate. Say what you will about Bieksa's final two or three seasons in Vancouver, the guy was a warrior for this franchise on and off the ice. While the body of work is seemingly endless, more prominent and accessible examples for both these qualities can be summed up in the series-clinching goal in 2011 which sent Vancouver to it's third Stanley Cup or his invaluable work promoting mental health awareness with Mind Check.
His body of work spanned roughly 10 seasons and saw the heart-and-soul defender suit up in 597-games for the Canucks, good for sixth-most among defenders in franchise history. What kind of legacy will the once beloved defender leave behind? Meet me on the other side of the jump to find out.
