Brendan Gaunce (shoulder) will be out until at least November.
It's a tough break for the former first-round pick, as he finally was able to push for a roster spot last season. In 2016-17, he scored no goals and five assists in 57 contests with the Canucks. Even when he does come back to the lineup, Gaunce still won't have any value in standard fantasy leagues. Sep 9 - 10:06 AM

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.

He has been working hard in the summer with a shooting specialist, a skills coach and a power skating instructor. Gaunce feels more confident and he wants to be a contributor after he picked up one goal in 20 appearances with the Canucks last year.

Brendan Gaunce will shift to center for Tuesday's game.

He has played in the middle for most of his career, but has played on the wing during his time with the Canucks. Gaunce is projected to play between Chris Higgins and Alex Grenier.
