The Vancouver Canucks selected Finnish defender Olli Juolevi fifth overall in the 2016 NHL entry draft. He’s been hyped to be the future of the Canucks’ blue line but the question is, should you believe the hype? He was the highest drafted defenceman in 2016, but so far, he’s been outclassed by some fellow draft-mates.

Things are really heating up for the Vancouver Canucks… when it comes to their prospects. All over the world, from Utica all the way to Sweden and Finland, Canucks prospects are dominating their respective leagues — Adam Gaudette is holding down the fort at the college level. Gaudette is easily one of the best players

Like Patrick Maroon in Edmonton, the Vancouver Canucks are working to re-sign Erik Gudbranson. Failing that, the burly blueliner — and pending unrestricted free agent — will almost certainly be traded by the Feb. 26 deadline. Listed at 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, Gudbranson is a mountain of a man who just turned 26 years old

Here we are again, with another trade deadline approaching, hopes rising and rumors swirling. The Vancouver Canucks have been the subject of a healthy amount of rumors this season and the most recent one involves defender Ben Hutton. The team isn’t exactly shopping him around, but no one is completely off the table. From an

Looking at the Vancouver Canucks’ plethora of young talent, you can’t help but applaud the work done by general manager Jim Benning and his predecessor, Mike Gillis. It hasn’t all been smooth sailing, though — there’s been a fair share of blemishes on draft days. Regardless of mistakes that were made, the Canucks future is

Nikolay Goldobin is one of those players that seems so good when you watch them, but then somehow doesn’t get the expected status. Often seen as too soft for the NHL, Goldobin managed to score some highlight reel goals, but also post very negative numbers in the plus-minus column, and since he’s not very young anymore,

A month ago, it seemed the Vancouver Canucks had plenty of questions in terms of what to do. They were in the middle of the playoff race and playing well behind a legitimate first line and steady goaltending. Since Bo Horvat went down with a foot injury, the Canucks have won only two of their

This is the second in a series of articles in which I explore a significant trade for each Vancouver Canucks season, starting with their inaugural season of 1970-71. Without a doubt, the most significant trade the Canucks made during their first season was acquiring future captain Andre Boudrias from St. Louis. From the offseason through

Today marks the two year anniversary of the suicide of Vancouver Canucks’ enforcer Rick Rypien[at the time of writing/2013]. This may be one of the hardest articles I’ve ever had to write because Rypien’s death hit very close to home for me. You see, I, like Rick Rypien, suffer from depression. My Story of Anxiety

For this segment of weekly thoughts, we address Vancouver Canucks trade rumours, explore the ramifications of Chris Tanev’s injury, and highlight the bounce-back performance of the Sedins. We also take a look at how Canucks’ prospects Kole Lind, Jonah Gadjovich, and Michael DiPietro fared at Team Canada’s world junior camp. Canucks Searching for a Top-Nine

This is the first in a series of articles where I’ll revisit a significant trade the Vancouver Canucks made during their 48 NHL seasons to date. The Canucks were awarded an expansion team for the 1970-71 season and inaugural general manager Bud Poile set forth to build the team. Six players from the old professional

The Vancouver Canucks, as I touched on in my previous article, were plagued with injuries to key players in November and early December. Almost immediately after my article had been published, yet another key player in Sven Baertschi was sidelined for an estimated four-to-six weeks with a fractured jaw. These injuries have left the Canucks

The month of November was a painful time for the Vancouver Canucks both figuratively, and primarily literally—a handful of injuries to key players has left the Canucks in a bad place at a key point of the season. Coming into the 2017-18 season, nobody expected the Canucks to actually be competing for a playoff position,

Not much was expected from the Vancouver Canucks this season. That’s what happens when you have two consecutive campaigns of finishing second to last in the Western Conference, with the third-fewest points in the NHL. Last season was particularly dire for the Canucks, as they managed just 69 points. This represented their lowest total in an
