Where Are the Canucks With Travis Green’s Contract

Eight games, a single-digit amount, that’s how many games Travis Green has left behind the Vancouver Canucks’ bench. Unless of course, the Canucks and Green agree to a new contract before his current one expires on July 1st. At the moment though, whether or not this will happen is up for heated speculation. If the Canucks don’t strike a deal with Green before the team plays their final game this...

Just like every other aspect of the Vancouver Canucks season, there have been some serious highs and treacherous lows with the goaltending situation. Thatcher Demko has shown that his performance in the bubble was not a blip, but instead the bar. Braden Holtby started his Canucks tenure with some of the weakest hockey of his career and Michael DiPietro hasn’t played a game in over 400 days, after a strong...

It looks like the Canucks AHL affiliate team is on the move again. It was reported just over a week and a half ago that the Utica Comets President Robert Esche has registered a trademark for the “Utica Devils”. For any Utica Comets fan holding their breath that this trademark is simply for an alt-rock band that Esche will be front lining, you may want to sit down, because this...

The Canucks defied all expectations in their return to the ice, after their one-week break,  immediately followed by the worst COVID-19 outbreak the NHL has seen to date. When the Canucks returned to game action after over 3 weeks off, expectations were all but nil. The playoff chances seemed withered and the team was expected to be slow and fatigued.  Returning with two games in 3 nights against the division-leading...

Two games in and these post COVID Canucks have already good and truly flipped the script on what was expected of them.

The Canucks have been on pause since their mid-season break on March 24th. On the eve of the team’s planned return on March 31st, Adam Gaudette was pulled mid-practice with a positive test for COVID-19.
