Canucks Should Offer Sheet Kapanen or Johnsson

It’s no secret Bo Horvat’s revolving door of wingers has been a problem for the Vancouver Canucks this season. The club’s promising 23-year-old centre has played at least 100 minutes with 10 different wingers at 5-on-5 so far in 2018-19. Brock Boeser: 296:01 Antoine Roussel: 251:36 Jake Virtanen: 249:40 Nikolay Goldobin: 235:42 Loui Eriksson: 218:37 Sven Baertschi: 137:46 Josh Leivo: 130:43 Tyler Motte: 107:40 Tim Schaller: 107:13 Markus Granlund: 104:49 Given the circumstances, Horvat has don...

NHL Rumors: Brown, Simmonds, Canucks, Oilers, More

In today’s rumor rundown, there are rumors the Canucks might try to trade a pretty good forward for help on the blue line this summer, there are updates on what to do with Taylor Hall when he comes back from his knee surgery and the Oilers interest in Connor Brown out of Toronto, plus more. Could Virtanen Be Traded By Canucks? Jason Brough of The Athletic suggests that the Vancouver Canucks might look at trading winger Jake Virtanen to bolster their blue line over the summer. With Alex Edler’s...

Canucks’ Playoff Hopes Hampered by Injuries

In news, but not good news, the Vancouver Canucks have six new players. Perhaps this is good news for the players who’ve been added to the roster, but it’s horrible news for the Canucks. Gone are Brandon Sutter, Sven Baertschi, Jake Virtanen, Chris Tanev, Alex Edler, and Thatcher Demko. Without these players, the Canucks lineup is seriously depleted. These are not just run-of-the-mill players — several have been key pieces to the team’s surprisingly strong playoff run. This was not supposed to b...

Virtanen Out With Broken Rib

The Vancouver Canucks announced another tough injury loss on Monday afternoon, saying that forward Jake Virtanen will be out for the next month with a broken rib, which he suffered against the Ducks last week. Virtanen was already on the Injured Reserve, as the team needed to make room for some healthy bodies on their roster, but after some tests and scans on the weekend, the team [Author: Clayton Corley]

Canucks Rally to Beat Kings in Shootout

LOS ANGELES — Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser scored in a shootout after Adam Gaudette tied it up with 1:38 remaining in the third period to give the Vancouver Canucks a 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday night. Pettersson and Boeser also scored in regulation for the Canucks, who had lost four straight road games. Jacob Markstrom made 35 saves through overtime, before allowing a shootout goal to Ilya Kovalchuk and then stopping Anze Kopitar and Adrian Kempe. Brock Boeser, Vancouve...

Canucks’ Aquilini: Focus Is on “Our Long-Term Plan”

Vancouver Canucks fans doing any sort of scoreboard watching on Wednesday night were pleased to find out that the Anaheim Ducks, Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche all lost in regulation. As such, the Canucks’ own 5-2 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes — their last game before the All-Star break — didn’t set them back, at least not as far as the playoff race goes, with their 52 points still tied with the Avalanche and Dallas Stars. It wasn’t just fans, however, who were chiming in with th...

Why the Vancouver Canucks Are a Playoff Team

Yes, you read that title correctly. The Vancouver Canucks are currently a playoff team in the National Hockey League. Players are stepping up at the right time and systems are being played quite effectively – the Canucks are playing a fast and tough to play against style of hockey. Considering the Canucks haven’t seen the postseason in three seasons, it’s a nice change of pace. Perhaps what is most impressive about the team’s current spot in the Pacific Division is the fact that they’ve battled ...

Canucks Cover Red Wings in Pettersson’s Return

VANCOUVER — Elias Pettersson returned from a knee injury to lead his Vancouver Canucks to a 3-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday. The star rookie tallied a goal and an assist in the victory, bringing his point total for the season to 44. He missed five games this month after suffering a slight MCL sprain against the Montreal Canadiens on Jan. 3. Antoine Roussel and Bo Horvat also found the back of the net for Vancouver (23-21-6), while Brock Boeser registered a pair of assists. Vancouve...

Mike Matheson Didn’t Answer The Bell Last Night

from  Iain MacIntyre of Sportsnet, Apparently, you can lead a Panther to water but you can’t make him fight. Something like that. The Vancouver Canucks tried Sunday to engage Panther defenceman Mike Matheson for injuring star rookie Elias Pettersson on a bodyslam behind the play Oct. 13 in Florida. Matheson, whose subsequent two-game suspension by the National Hockey League was only one-third the time Pettersson missed due to a concussion, refused in the first 10 minutes of the re...

Blue Jackets Showing Some Signs of Life

The Columbus Blue Jackets had a real opportunity this week to bank some points against some weaker opponents. This was the perfect way to move on from an embarrassing 4-0 loss to the Washington Capitals last Saturday while trying to find their way on home ice. This week proved to be tougher than some anticipated, with the Blue Jackets going 1-1-1 on the week. While only getting three of a possible six points might seem disheartening, their overall play during the week has been encouraging. Coach...

Canucks goalie Jacob Markstrom (Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports) Elias Pettersson got credit for a goal that went in off his skate to tie the game with about 3:04 left, and Virtanen’s goal put the Canucks ahead 78 seconds later.

Canucks’ Bo Horvat: The Emergence

The Vancouver Canucks’ Bo Horvat has emerged in the 2018-19 season as one of the best two-way centers in the NHL. In the wake of several key injuries this season, Horvat has elevated his play in multiple facets of the game. Coming into the season, Horvat was a heavy favourite to be named captain of the Canucks but the team elected to leave the position vacant — a move that I believe was done to push Horvat even further and propel him down the trajectory the organization needs him to be. Be...

Canucks Beat Predators – Pettersson Converts Penalty Shot

VANCOUVER — Rookie Elias Pettersson scored on his first NHL penalty shot as the Vancouver Canucks used a 5-3 win over the Nashville Predators Thursday night to snap a four-game losing streak. Pettersson was awarded the penalty shot with 71 seconds left in the second period after being hauled down on a breakaway by Nashville defenceman Mattias Ekholm. On the shot, Pettersson weaved his way across the ice then tucked the puck past goaltender Pekka Renne’s toe for a 4-1 lead. The 20-year-old Swede,...

Wild Snap Slump With Win Over Canucks

VANCOUVER — A pair of goals from Jason Zucker led the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks Tuesday night. The victory snapped the Wild’s three-game losing streak and extended a slump that has seen the Canucks post a single win in their last 13 outings. Zach Parise also scored for Minnesota (15-10-2). Josh Leivo and Tyler Motte put up goals for Vancouver (11-15-3). Devan Dubnyk made 29 saves for the Wild and Anders Nilsson stopped 25-of-28 shots for the Canucks. Devan Dubnyk, M...

Ben Kuzma: Leipsic waived, Gaudette stays, trio has its Super Skills way

Virtanen, Pettersson, Horvat triumph, respectively, in fastest skater, hardest shot, shooting accuracy. Brendan Leipsic could have added some sizzle to the Super Skills show Sunday at Rogers Arena. He has a quick stride and could have pushed Jake Virtanen in the fastest-lap competition. He could have been a force in the team-oriented puck-control relay. However, the Vancouver Canucks’ left winger, who has seen first-line and second-unit power-play time, was placed on waivers Sunday. If he clears...

Canucks’ Elias Pettersson Will Only Get ‘Better and Better’

VANCOUVER — Elias Pettersson has drawn awe from around the NHL with his stunning goals and mind-bending moves over the past two months, but those who’ve played alongside him say there’s likely more to come. The Vancouver Canucks rookie has already notched 13 goals and eight assists in 20 games and earned comparisons to some of hockey’s greatest legends. It’s hype that his current and former teammates say is warranted. Andrew Calof played with Pettersson on the Vaxjo Lakers in Sweden last year an...

What Is Cooling the Canucks Hot Start?

The Vancouver Canucks dreamy start to the 2018-19 season is feeling like a distant memory in the month of November. After winning nine of their first 15 games this year, the Canucks have faltered greatly by going on a six-game losing streak and getting defeated in seven of their last eight games. Some of the shortcomings that have curbed the Canucks in recent seasons is coming back to bite them this month. Too Many Goals Against This has been a lingering issue for the Canucks since the 2...
