Canucks Army Pre-Season Prospect Ranking #13: Petrus Palmu

When the Vancouver Canucks selected Owen Sound Attack forward Petrus Palmu in the sixth-round of the NHL Entry Draft, they sent a clear message to their fans about the change in philosophy taking hold in their front office. That message: skill is in high demand. Canucks Select Petrus Palmu 181st Overall https://t.co/ca9fDYrkxU — CanucksArmy (@CanucksArmy)…

Canucks Army 2017 Pre-Season Prospect Rankings #14: Evan McEneny

Evan McEneny is one of my favourite Canucks prospects; not because he’s the most talented or most likely to succeed, but because of how far he came in one single season. For McEneny, the difference between the beginning and end of the 2016-17 season is astronomical, no matter how you look at it. The way…

Canucks Army 2017 Pre-Season Prospect Rankings #15: Jalen Chatfield

When the Vancouver Canucks signed Windsor Spitfires defenceman Jalen Chatfield, the reaction from their fan base was muted at best. Just like Chatfield’s quiet, efficient brand of defensive hockey. At his absolute best, you hardly notice him. The #Canucks signed #CHL UFA defenceman Jalen Chatfield today. @ryanbiech has more: https://t.co/uPHphqjv3p #NHL pic.twitter.com/CXp8PEIGWd — CanucksArmy (@CanucksArmy)…

WWYDW: Dark Horse feat. Juicy J

These are truly the dog days of the offseason. When the biggest news item in weeks is that The Canucks signed Ryan White to a PTO, you know it’s a slow period. So, with that in mind, I’m abandoning the somewhat limiting “what would you do?” pretense of this series and asking for a simple…

Canucks Army 2017 Pre-Season Prospect Ranking #17: Jack Rathbone

I have to admit that when the Vancouver Canucks selected Jack Rathbone with the 95th overall pick in the fourth-round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, I was taken aback. Canucks Select D Jack Rathbone 95th Overall https://t.co/aYvPQHxVrS — CanucksArmy (@CanucksArmy) June 24, 2017 For starters, Rathbone was a high school prospect, and everything we’ve…

Sorting out the 2017-18 Vancouver Canucks Waiver Clearance

The Vancouver Canucks are, for the most part, set for the 2017-18 season. All they’ve left to do is sign Bo Horvat and reveal the names of their two professional tryouts, and they’re good to go. Next up is training camp and the pre-season. That’s going to force some difficult decisions on the Canucks front…

Report: Canucks Could Announce Bo Horvat Contract Extension Next Week

It sounds like Bo Horvat and the Vancouver Canucks might have already agreed to a contract extension, pending an announcement from the club next week. If we’re to believe TSN 1040 AM’s Don Taylor and his little birdie, that is. Don: "A little birdie has told me early next week." – for an announcement of…

Canucks Army 2017 Pre-Season Prospect Ranking #18: Andrey Pedan

Andrey Pedan has had a tough couple of seasons. After being brought into the Canucks organization in 2014, he rose to become one of the Canucks’ best defensive prospects. But instead of seeing what they have in Pedan, his time on the NHL roster has mostly been squandered. Now, after a tumultuous season and flagging…

What kind of numbers does Pettersson need to put up in the SHL to raise his stock even further? — Jason Flear (@Just_like_flyin) August 27, 2017 I’ve been pretty consistent about what we could expect from Elias Pettersson in the SHL next season. At least, I think that about half a point per game rate…
