Vancouver Canucks prospect Arshdeep Bains will miss the 2024 All-Star Skills Competition, along with Shakir Mukhamadullin of the San Jose Barracuda.
The two players faced off in a weekend clash in Abbotsford before heading to San Jose for the competition. Unfortunately, their flight encountered delays due to an atmospheric river in the California area.
Bains, 23, was slated to participate in this year’s Fastest Skater, Pass and Score, and Breakaway Relay events for Team Pacific.
The undrafted Surrey native is enjoying a stellar sophomore season and recently set a career-high in points, securing his 31st assist and reaching 40 points for the season in a 3-2 victory on Saturday. He now sits seventh in league scoring, while maintaining an impressive point-per-game pace.
He currently sits third in franchise history for points, notching 78 across 106 games.
Bains is the second Abbotsford Canuck to be selected for the AHL All-Star event in franchise history, following in Christian Wolanin’s footsteps from last season, who took part in the 2023 All-Star game in Laval, Quebec.
Ryan Johnson, General Manager of Abbotsford Canucks, commended Bains, noting, “This is a huge recognition for Bainsy, as it is voted on by other coaches in our division. He has put in a lot of work to get to this point, and we are confident that this is just the beginning for him.”
There is no official word on whether this will interfere with his ability to take part in the AHL All-Star game, which is scheduled for 6:00 pm Pacific Time on Monday evening.
