CANUCKSARMY’S 2018 NHL DRAFT PROFILES: #79 Linus Nyman

One of the top scoring re-entries this year is Finnish-born OHL sniper Linus Nyman. The diminutive winger has spent the last two seasons on a powerful Kingston team, benefiting from and contributing to the strength of that group. We have Nyman ranked near the end of our Top 100 last year, and after going unclaimed…

CANUCKSARMY’S 2018 NHL DRAFT PROFILES: #80 Liam Foudy

Liam Foudy is another player who benefited from the CHL’s trade deadline, in this because it afforded him a lot more opportunity when his London Knights became sellers. As a result, he saw a huge spike in his offence in the second half of the season. Foudy is a terrific skater and can speed past…

CANUCKSARMY’S 2018 NHL DRAFT PROFILES: #83 Scott Perunovich

On his third go round when it comes to NHL Entry Draft eligibility, Scott Perunovich is the second oldest player on our Top 100 list, although his mid-August birthday puts him pretty close to draft-plus-one status. What’s really been holding Perunovich back from getting selected the past couple of seasons in his size: listed anywhere…

By the Numbers: A Quick Look at Swedish Twins Max and Joel Wahlgren

Canucks Army’s own Vanessa Jang made some waves on Monday in the wake of the announcement of the Sedins’ retirement when she drew attention to another pair of hockey playing Swedish twins: Max and Joel Wahlgren. The two young forwards are in their draft-minus-one seasons this year, playing in some of Sweden’s high level junior…

CanucksArmy’s 2018 Midterm Prospect Rankings: #18 Brett McKenzie

Now that our midterm prospect rankings are back rolling and we’ve breached the top 20, we’re getting into some prospects that have had a higher degree of optimism at some point or another. The last time I wrote a feature on Brett McKenzie, it was during his highly impressive start to the 2016-17 season, not…

Michael Del Zotto Should Be On the Trade Block

Now that the Canucks have locked up Erik Gudbranson, their most valuable asset from a deadline perspective (concerning what he could have netted in return), their ability to accrue pieces for their ostensible rebuild at the deadline has been compromised. I mean, you can’t blame them. Everyone knows rebuilding teams that are at least three to…

About That Authority You’re Appealing To…

The big news this week is obviously the re-signing of Canucks defenceman Erik Gudbranson. It’s everywhere, and you’d have to be actively ignoring all things Canuck-related to miss it (although no one would think less of you for it). This news was such a massive deal that it’s only natural that everyone – from pro-analytics…
