Welcome to this year’s version of the Canucks Army Weekly Prospect Report. Much like last year, the intent is for a weekly post covering all of the latest in Canucks prospect news. This year we are going to slightly change the format and try and do two weekly posts: one covering the Comets and all news related to them; and a second post on non-Comets prospects. This would be the first post in the non-Comets’ prospects news.
With all the recent changes in staff here at Canucks Army, I was able to make the top blogger line up out of camp as I enter the second year on my EBC (Entry-Blogger Contract). While I did not disappear in the summer, there was simply little prospect news to report since no one was playing. Pivoted by Thats_Offside I fully intend to give 110% on every post, to keep my text short and take each week post by post.
Without much further adieu, read past the jump for the latest in prospects news:

The ECHL has officially merged with the old Central Hockey League (where Corbeil bounced around last season). I suspect there will be a few Comets’ to be cut and assigned here. This league does not begin until the end of October once the AHL rosters start to be finalized.
