The Canucks are undefeated!

The Comets haven’t won a game yet!

So many storylines going on in such a small sample size!

So let’s take a look at the Canucks prospect this past week, and see who is making an impact in the hockey world.

  • Brett McKenzie appeared in three contests this week – where he finished the week with 2 goals and 2 assists. McKenzie continues to have a good D+2 season for North Bay, and our own Jeremy Davis discussed this at length earlier today. His goals this week included this beauty:

  • Carl Neill of the Carl Neills had a great week – as he posted 5 assists on Sunday! He also had another assist for a total of 6 assists in two games. He was named the QMJHL second star of the week.
  • Tate Olson was a PPG player this week – posting three points in three contests for Prince George. Surprisingly P.G. continues to be one of the best teams in the CHL and Olson is a big part of that success.
  • Brisebois had a bit of down week, being limited to one point in three contests – but his 0.86 PPG is well above his career average.

  • Dmitry Zhukenov seems to be finding his stride after recovering from an injury. He had three points in two contests this past week, which includes the GWG in OT:
  • Olli Juolevi appeared in two contests for London – he scored one goal
  • Jakob Stukel scored in back to back games this past week, which included this one:

  • Cole Candella played three games this past week – and had one assist.
  • Rodrigo Abols remains in limbo at this time – he was reportedly waived, but there was no formal announcements of any kind.

NCAA

Name Pos Age League Team GP G A P P/GP NHLe +/- PIM SOG Sh% SOG/GP
Brock Boeser R 19.237 NCAA-NCHC U of North Dakota 3 1 6 7 2.33 78.4 +5 0 10 10.0% 3.33

Will Lockwood LW 18.122 NCAA-Big10 U of Michigan 3 1 1 2 0.67 19.1 +1 0 8 12.5% 2.67
  • Boeser was limited to one assist in one game this past weekend.

  • Adam Gaudette appeared in two games this weekend and was held pointless during the Friday contest but broke out with one goal and three assists in the Saturday game.
  • William Lockwood was held pointless this weekend.

EUROPE

Name Pos Age League Team GP G A P P/GP NHLe +/- PIM SOG Sh% SOG/GP
Anton Cederholm D 21.241 SHL Rogle 8 0 0 0 0.00 0.0 -1 4 0 0.0% 0.00

  • Lukas Jasek appeared in two contests for HC Trinec – he was held pointless.
  • Anton Cederholm and Rogle agreed to terminate his contract, and Cederholm has now moved to AIK in the Allsvenskan. Ice time was the main reason for Cederholm wanting to make the move as he was averaging 6:42 of ice time with Rogle.

  • The Utica Comets played two games against the powerhouse Toronto Marlies, and it didn’t go well. Losing both games by a combined score of 10-4.
  • Jordan Subban lead the Comets in scoring for the weekend with 4 points, including 2 powerplay goals, in the two games. Subban is tied for 6th in AHL scoring, and is currently tied for 1st in AHL defenceman scoring.
  • Cody Kunyk was assigned to the Alaska Aces of the ECHL.
  • My good friend Jeremy Davis has a more in depth look at the Utica Comets games here.
  • Not listed above, but Demko appeared in one of the games this past weekend – he currently had a 5.00 GAA and 0.848 SV%.
  • ECHL

    • The Alaska aces season begins tomorrow.

    Schedule

    Cederholm’s schedule is now based on the AIK schedule. Abols/Portland’s schedule has been removed going forward.

    Have a good weekend!

    • Carl Neill, 11 points in 8 games. Future Canuck.

      Jim Benning on TSN 1040 today, “Nikita Tryamkin is 263 lbs.” Wow! I hope he turns into the next Big Buff. Something must have happened, as Nikita is on double secret probation, some kind of special “training program.” Not sure what this means, but I hope management is working with him and turning him into the best he can be. He has yet to play. Nikita has a future in Van. I see him as an important member of the Vancouver Canucks.

      The interesting comparison is Juolevi and Sergachyov who is hoping to get past the 10 games decision point of should he stay or should he go.

      As of right now it actually looks like Benning made a huge blunder with Juolevi being average and Sergachyov looking very good.

      Too bad about Tryamkin. Like quite a few Russians he refused to take off season training seriously and expected to play his way into shape. Maybe it`s not that big a deal as I recall a couple of players reporting to camp 50 pounds over weight – Byfuglien and Keith Tkachuk – and still getting in game shape. That`s the big question with Tryamkin; Is he going to get in shape or are the Canucks going to lose patience and trade him or is he going to just go home.

      I`m still pumping Gaudette`s tires. He`s about 30th is national scoring and by the end of the season he should be top ten and thinking about a contract.
