He scored one goal in 20 outings with Vancouver last year and his fantasy value will probably continue to be limited this season.
Oct 11 - 3:33 PM

The Vancouver Canucks have started playing Brendan Gaunce at center once again.

Gaunce had played most of his career at center but the Canucks had been using him as a winger during his NHL career until late last season. He only played 20 games with the Canucks last season and managed a solitary goal with nary an assist. The former first round pick of the Canucks in 2012 looks to be a bottom-six player in his career so his fantasy value will be negligible.

Brendan Gaunce believes he can claim a roster spot with Vancouver out of training camp.

Perhaps Gaunce is yet another youngster for Vancouver fans to be excited about.

Brendan Gaunce has one for the books, but the replay shows something slightly different.

It may look like a ripper from the slot, but the puck actually was a rebound that redirected off his skate and in. But hey, there's a reason why they say going to the net makes good things happen. And really, a goal is a goal is a goal. Congrats to the 21-year-old.
