It’s been another week of play for the Utica Comets with another 3 games under their belt.  The team's success continued as they won 2 of 3 games, collecting 4 points.  All of the Comets' underlying numbers remain very positive, and even with the reshuffling of lineups due to injuries in Vancouver, the team continues to play some encouraging hockey.

Welcome to another edition of the (now Buzzfeed-inspired!) Canucks Army Weekly Prospect Report, as we look back on this week’s activities from all non-AHL Canucks prospects.   It’s been a fairly uneventful week with most of the prospects being very quiet on the ice, or not playing many games.  The NCAA has been the most active, but all the Canucks teams seemingly are on a losing streak.  There’s still much optimism in the OHL with prospects like Cole Cassels and Jordan Subban continuing to shine.
