The Vancouver Canucks have designated Zack MacEwen for assignment. The forward has been placed on waivers, according to Thomas Drance of The Athletic.
MacEwen can be reassigned to the Abbotsford Canucks on Wednesday if he clears, which would free up a roster spot for the Canucks to either activate Brock Boeser or add Alex Chiasson to their active roster.
MacEwen, 25, appeared in 34 games for the Canucks last season and tallied one goal and one assist.
He was not on the ice for Tuesday practice.
