CanucksArmy Monday Mailbag: January 22nd

How long until Virtanen gets traded? — Dilettante (@Andrew_Dickie) January 22, 2018 This team has so much invested in Jake Virtanen’s success. I can’t imagine any scenario where Canucks general manager Jim Benning trades Virtanen. It would have to be an absolutely amazing offer, and there’s just no way the Canucks are getting one of those…


CanucksArmy Post-Game: A True Second Half of a Back-to-Back

I think my title sums this one up perfectly. In the infinite wisdom of the NHL, two teams coming back from vacation the night before (Us: Edmonton, Them: Calgary), playing in the second game of a back to back. On top of that, the Jets played earlier on Hockey Day in Canada, where the Canucks…

CanucksArmy Post-Game: Oil Spill

After a full week off, we all knew we were in for a mess of a game. To be frank, the Canucks weren’t very good tonight. They lost 5-2 to the Oilers and looked pretty rusty.


Behold the Resurgence of… Cole Cassels?!

There’s no way around it: the Comets have been absolutely decimated by injuries this season, particularly along the forward group. During their Saturday game against Binghamton, they dressed five players (four forwards) on professional try-out contracts, and as recently as three weeks ago they were playing with nine try-out players in the lineup, with two…



The Canucks are back from their bye week and should have a boost of energy as Bo Horvat nears his return. You may have heard of him. Vancouver entered the break on a two-game winning streak and will look to add a groundbreaking third straight victory against the Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton was dealt some bad news…


Comets Return Anton Cederholm to Kalamazoo

It looks like the Utica Comets have trimmed their roster by one. The Utica Observer-Dispatch sent out a tweet this morning, letting us know that Anton Cederholm is on his way back to Kalamazoo of the ECHL.
