Where is Elias Pettersson? The Vancouver Canucks have now played 11 games since their star forward Elias Patterson last suited up for the team on March 2nd. In his absence, there was no doubt an initial thrill that came from seeing the Canucks earn a three-game winning streak, beating the Toronto Maple Leafs twice and the Montreal Canadiens once.

Another week, another Toronto Maple Leaf player added off waivers to a Canucks team who just lost a top-six player to injury. Jimmy Vesey will be seeing another familiar face in the Canucks locker room, other than just J.T. Miller. Travis Boyd, released to waivers by Toronto this week, was Vesey’s regular right-wing counterpart on the Leafs’ fourth line. In Toronto, Boyd was playing almost identical minutes to Vesey, with...

On Wednesday, March 17th the Canucks acquired Jimmy Vesey off of waivers. The 27-year-old left-winger was previously playing for the Toronto Maple Leafs this season. With all parties involved being north of the 49th parallel, thankfully for the Canuck they didn’t have to worry about any quarantine protocols with this acquisition. Vesey was having a decent season in Toronto as a bottom-six forward, however “decent” for the Maples Leafs is...

On Monday night Thatcher Demko made 44 saves against the Ottawa Senators to allow his team to collect their sixth win in eight games. Demko has been absolutely unstoppable in the month of March and has slipped right into Jacob Markstrom’s old spot perfectly.

Trent Leith / March 12, 2021

When Elias Pettersson left the Vancouver Canucks lineup with an undisclosed upper-body injury, we all knew that there would be a wrench thrown into the top six. One positive thing about that wrench though, is that it has created opportunities for guys further down the lineup to prove themselves in the top half of the roster. Jake Virtanen got a shot on a line with Bo Hrovat and Tanner Pearson...

Miller’s Time at Centre, Canucks Can Capitalize

Brayden Fengler / March 10, 2021

J.T. Miller didn’t have as rough of a start to the season as Elias Pettersson, or as explosive of a start as his other usual linemate Brock Boeser. Miller started out the season stuck in the same middle ground as Canucks captain Bo Horvat. The two players showed some exciting moments of play early on, and gave no reason for concern, yet they left some Canucks fans wanting more. Unlike...
