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

The Vancouver Canucks are battling in a very competitive Pacific Division largely due to their above-average defensive play and all without their supposed number-one defender, Alex Edler. So, do the Canucks really need Alex Edler? For a time, Edler was, without a doubt, the Canucks’ top defender. During the 2010-11 Cup Final run, he was

Vancouver Canucks fans would often be remiss if they didn’t pine for better days. And just over 20 years ago might have been the best days of all in Canucks lore. To distract ourselves from the sometimes ugly present, we turn our eyes to the glorious spring of 1994. 1994 Vancouver Canucks: Bright Beginnings Pavel

One year ago, the Canucks’ rebuild was less exciting than it is now. In the summer of 2016, one of the most intriguing players in the organisation was Anton Rodin. At the beginning of this season, however, Rodin is stuck on the farm and has been unable to get in a game when called up by

Coming into the 2017-18 season, the Vancouver Canucks goaltending situation was somewhat up in the air. The Canucks extended Jacob Markstrom’s stay in Vancouver and also brought Anders Nilsson into the fold all while saying adios to previous starter, Ryan Miller. The two net-minders, Nilsson and Markstrom, are virtually identical ranging from their 6’6″ statures

The Vancouver Canucks had a horrific season in 2016-17 with terrible statistics across the board. Their penalty kill stats were no exception, as Vancouver had the third-worst penalty kill percentage in the league at 76.7%. With the departures of Alex Burrows and Jannik Hansen last season, an already dismal penalty kill lost two key members and

The National Hockey League expanded by two teams in 1970, one of which was the Buffalo Sabres, while the other was out in western Canada—the Vancouver Canucks. For any NHL expansion team, strong goaltending is a must. A veteran netminder can stop the bleeding when facing a powerhouse, and can also steal a win that

Entering the 2017-18 regular season, the overriding sentiment was that Vancouver Canucks fans shouldn’t get their hopes up. While professional sports can be unpredictable, not much was expected from the team based in British Columbia. However, when the Canucks started the campaign with a thrilling 3-2 win over Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers, you couldn’t help

He’s back. The dragon slayer, and everyone’s favourite pest returns to Vancouver tonight in the city where his illustrious NHL career began. He won’t go down as the best or most talented Canuck in history, but he was definitely one of the most well-liked. Burrows played his way into the hearts of Canucks fans with

Over that past few seasons, the Vancouver Canucks have had some difficulty cementing a top-six forward lineup and this coming 2017-18 won’t be any different. As I’ve touched on before, roles have changed, additions have been made and talent has developed. This has created a big-time fluctuation in the Canucks’ top six forwards. Management has decisions

Take a breath Vancouver Canucks fans, the team is finally rebuilding. Even though Trevor Linden and Jim Benning were reluctant to toss out the dreaded “R” word, it’s clear that’s what the team is doing, especially after Benning’s recent interview with Bob McKenzie, although his moves at the trade deadline already signaled the shift.

The Vancouver Canucks have faced a lot of questions stemming from the 2014 NHL Entry Draft when they selected Jake Virtanen sixth overall in the first round. Since then, players chosen after Virtanen like the Toronto Maple Leafs’ William Nylander, the Winnipeg Jets’ Nikolaj Ehlers and the Detroit Red Wings’ Dylan Larkin have established themselves
