Undrafted Alexei Polodyan gave Russia an early 1-0 lead before Philadelphia Flyers prospect German Rubtsov made it 2-0…

Babych Please – December 29th, 2017

The Canucks are back in action after a brief holiday break. Let’s check in on them, their Christmas spirit, and their rivals’ typos. The San Jose Sharks’ attempt at spelling “Canucks” in their preview video from last week is bizarre and hilarious. ? pic.twitter.com/ixngcAuaPo — Vancouver Canucks (@Canucks) December 22, 2017 The Gagner family photos…

CanucksArmy Post-Game: Christmas Holid-yay!

Prior to tonight, the Canucks had one win in their last nine games and Christmas break couldn’t come faster. Players departed to their hometowns to spend quality time with their family and friends, then arrived back in YVR hoping to hit the reset button. Well, they did and it worked out for the better. The…

CanucksArmy World Junior Recap: Slovakia 3 – 2 USA

The final game from today’s slate wasn’t supposed to be even remotely competitive. At least not in my estimation. You had the tournament hosting, Gold defending Americans with their bevy of first-rounders and future stars against a dwindling hockey nation barely clinging to relevancy on the international stage in the Slovakians. This had blowout written…

CanucksArmy World Junior Recap: Russia 5 – 2 Switzerland

My expectations for this game weren’t high, but I didn’t expect a blowout either. That I got a highly competitive game from start to finish was like found money. The Russians, even with a less talented team than they’ve had in recent years, are still a hockey superpower. For all the Suisse have done to…

CanucksArmy World Junior Recap: Sweden 3 – 1 Czech Republic

The Czech Republic entered the game with some tailwind from upsetting Russia in their first game of the tournament. Against Sweden, however, their start wasn’t great, and the Swedes around Vancouver Canucks prospect Elias Pettersson went into the game with a 2-0 lead. It was also Pettersson who scored a game-winning, bar-down goal on the…

CanucksArmy World Junior Recap: Finland 4 – 1 Denmark

Day three of the World Junior Hockey Championship kicked off with a Thursday morning game between Finland and Denmark. I’ll start off by telling you that the score of 4-1 in this game doesn’t do the Finnish performance justice. After a sloppy first 90 seconds from Finland, they dominated the game in every aspect. If…

Comets Add Marco Roy on PTO

It looks like the Utica Comets have added one of their former players, Marco Roy, on a PTO. The ECHL transactions page shows the 6’1″, 182lbs, 23-year-old center as being loaned to the Utica Comets from the Fort Wayne Komets. In 14 games this season with the Komets, Roy has accumulated six goals and 11…

CANUCKSARMY GDT 38 – CANUCKS VS. BLACKHAWKS

Welcome back! After a disappointing stretch ended at the Christmas break, the Canucks look to bounce back tonight against the visiting Chicago Blackhawks. The Hawks are in a similar situation as the Canucks sitting towards the bottom of the Western Conference and points will be at a premium, not that we’re whining or anything. It…
