Snap Shots: The Canucks are 10-0-0 when they are Outshot at Home

Snap Shots: Canucks Draft Pick Nils Höglander at the World Junior Championships

All eyes will be on Nils Hoglander at this year’s tournament after Andrei Svechnikov scored the second “Nyssa” goal of his brief NHL career. While Svechnikov may have popularized the move, Nils Höglander has been scoring lacrosse goals in professional leagues since Svech was a rookie. I may be biased,  but I think Höglander’s “Nyssa”…
