Another week has passed and luckily I remembered that I wanted to make every effort to have this prospect mailbag a regular weekly thing. Obviously, I can’t predict what will happen in the future, by two weeks in a row is good, right? At least we’re starting out on a good foot. As promised, I…

Blackfish: CanucksArmy Prospect Report – November 16th, 2017

I’ve been thinking about just changing the name of Blackfish to the “Elias Pettersson Prospect Report: and some other guys”. He’s been that good.

Deep Dive: The Canucks Might Have Something in Philip Holm

This Philip Holm defenceman that the Canucks signed in the off-season to add to their blue line depth is pretty good, it turns out. His signing was fairly unheralded in this market as it happened in May and the Canucks had just finished a terrible season. Fans were looking to the future, and a 25-year-old…

How the Canucks recalled Reid Boucher with 23 players on roster

I’m always fascinated by the how and why of transactions in the NHL. Most of the time, they are mean nothing transactions that happen for the reason you think. Sometimes, there is more, and I believe that to be the case with today’s move. Ben Birnell of the Utica Observer Dispatch noticed that forward Reid…

2018 NHL Entry Draft: CHL Forwards to Watch
