Canucks Army Weekly Prospect Report – October 09, 2014

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:

ECHL

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.
