Blackfish: Canucks Army Weekly Prospect Report – December 31, 2015

Embed from Getty Images  With Christmas in the rear-view mirror, the unofficial second half of the season begins. The World Juniors round robin is over, with the ‘real’ games starting on Saturday. The Spengler Cup was also decided this morning, so that’s exciting, I guess. The NCAA is back after a small winter break, while…

Jannik Hansen fined $2000 for diving in Tampa game

Embed from Getty Images File this one under “unexpected”, especially with the time it took to dish out. The National Hockey League has fined Vancouver Canucks forward Jannik Hansen a sum of $2000 for a perceived dive in his game against Tampa Bay on December 22nd.  

Canucks Army Postgame: Canada Falls 5-2 to Sweden at IIHF U-20

Embed from Getty Images The Canadians certainly aren’t making things easy on themselves at this tournament. With two days rest after a gruelling 3-2 shootout victory over the Suisse, one hoped that the Canadians would find themselves again and put together a solid sixty minutes against the powerhouse Swedes. That wasn’t the case, as Canada shot…

Wrapping Up Days Four & Five Of The World Juniors

Embed from Getty Images It’s been a busy two days at the World Junior Hockey Championships in Helsinki and I’ve admittedly struggled to keep pace. That’s a lot of hockey to keep up with and I’ve only so much time at my disposal. That’s not to say that these posts are in jeopardy. Not by…

WWYDT: A Fresh Start

Embed from Getty Images Vancouver gets to hold onto 2015 a little bit longer than most cities, but at some point tonight, we will cross over into a new year with limitless possibilities and slightly more ink used to write (though, really, it’s about to be 2016 and you shouldn’t still be writing things by…

Utica Week In Review: December 29th

Photo Credit: Lindsay A. Mogle / Utica Comets After a little Christmas break, the Comets got back at it last weekend for a pair of games against a couple of fierce divisional rivals.

Brandon Prust Upset With Department of Player Safety

Embed from Getty Images When Roberto Luongo left this team via trade, one couldn’t help but wonder who would be picking up the Twitter slack.

Canucks Army Postgame: Canada vs Switzerland IIHF U-20

(I agree) The Canadians entered today’s contest on less than a days rest, hoping to put some distance between themselves and the have nots of Group A. Meanwhile the Suisse were hoping to hold the fort, as the presumptive underdog in today’s proceedings. While the prospect of a loss seemed unfathomable to the Canadians, the…

A Kzoo Look: December 27th

Kalamazoo played two games this weekend following the Christmas break. Kalamazoo lost 5-2 in Fort Wayne on Saturday night. I did not attend that game. Cederholm did not finish the game after taking a high stick to the face. The game got a bit ugly in the 3rd period, and Fox picked up his first…

Wrapping Up Day Three of the World Juniors

Embed from Getty Images If yesterday’s contests were a who’s-who of the up and comers, today’s slate of competition at the World Juniors was a veritable Clash of the Titans. The days festivities began with a match between former compatriots in the Slovaks and Czech’s. However resilient, the Slovakian side couldn’t hold the fort against…

Canucks 2015 NHL Draft: 6 Months later

Embed from Getty Images The NHL Entry Draft is where teams are built, and by all accounts at the time, the Canucks walked away from this past draft with a decent crop of youngsters despite not having a second round pick. Since we are now 6 months after the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, I figured it would be a…
