Nick Bonino had an assist in Vancouver's 2-0 win on Tuesday.

Bonino ended a two-game point drought, which was actually his longest slump of the season. He's been a great addition to the Canucks with seven goals and 16 points in 22 games this season.

Alexandre Burrows scored his fifth goal of the year in the Canucks' 2-0 win over New Jersey on Tuesday.

Burrows returned from an upper-body injury to get the game-winning goal for the Canucks. In an emotional night were the franchise honored the late Pat Quinn, it was Burrows who rose the occasion for the Canucks. Considering he scored five goals in all of last season, it's a clear a good sign. Shawn Matthias scored the insurance marker for the Canucks.

Ryan Miller stopped all 20 shots he faced in the Canucks' 2-0 win over New Jersey on Tuesday to pick up his second shutout of the season.

It wasn’t an extremely busy night for Miller but the veteran made some quality saves in the third period to hold off any rally from the Devils. Miller is now tied for the NHL lead in wins (14) with Nashville’s Pekka Rinne. Miller is shaping up to be one of the best value bargains in any fantasy draft this season with the way the Canucks are pulling out wins. He brings a 2.47 GAA and .908 save percentage into his next start.

The Vancouver Canucks have acquired Andrey Pedan from the New York Islanders in exchange for Alexandre Mallet and a 2016 third-round pick.

Pedan has three assists and 51 penalty minutes in six AHL contests in 2014-15. He was selected with the 63rd overall pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Nov 25 - 5:15 PM

Bo Horvat will stick with the Vancouver Canucks rather than be returned to the OHL London Knights.

Horvat has a goal and four points in eight games this season. Once he crosses the 10-game threshold, this will officially count as the first season of his entry-level contract.

Jannik Hansen was named the first star of the week.

Hansen had five goals in three games, including a hat trick versus Chicago on Sunday. It was a rare outburst for Hansen, who has never recorded more than 16 goals in a single season. He has eight markers and an assist in 21 games in 2014-15.

Henrik Sedin is on a three-game point streak.

Sedin had an assist in Sunday's 4-1 victory over Chicago. He now has five goals and 21 points in 21 contests in 2014-15.
Nov 24 - 9:21 AM

Derek Dorsett recorded two assists in a 4-1 win Sunday night.

Dorsett has two goals and eight points in 19 contests in 2014-15. That's impressive numbers for him given that he just got eight points in all of 2013-2014. He's a decent source of penalty minutes that can chip in offensively, but he shouldn't be counted on to maintain anything close to his current point-per-game pace.
Nov 24 - 9:20 AM

Bo Horvat had three assists in Vancouver's 4-1 win against Chicago on Sunday.

Jannik Hansen had a hat trick for the Canucks and Horvat assisted on each of his goals. It was a big night for Horvat, who just scored his first NHL goal and point on Thursday. On top of that, he logged 14:27 minutes of ice time, which is encouraging given that he's typically spent fewer than 10 minutes on the ice so far in his rookie campaign. He's got plenty of offensive upside and is consequently worth keeping an eye on.

Ryan Miller stopped 24 of 25 shots in Vancouver's 4-1 win over Chicago on Sunday night.

The game was tied at one heading into the third period when Vancouver exploded for three goals. Miller has now won three of his last four starts for Vancouver. The 34-year-old has a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage. Despite the modest numbers, Miller is the uncontested number one goalie in Vancouver.

Jannik Hansen scored a hat trick in Vancouver's 4-1 win over Chicago on Sunday.

The 28-year-old had five goals in 20 games coming into this one, so the hat trick was a little unexpected. Hansen opened the scoring in the first period, and then gave the Canucks a 2-1 lead in the third before scoring an empty netter to ice the game. He has scored five of his eight goals in his last three games. Hansen was the game's first star. Radim Vrbata scored the other goal for Vancouver.
Nov 24 - 12:27 AM

Frank Corrado is expected to be a healthy scratch against Chicago on Sunday night.

Corrado was called up on Friday presumably in part to help fill in for the injured Dan Hamhuis. When he'll see his next action however, is not known just yet.
