Chris Tanev is reportedly "in play," according to Sportsnet's Rick Dhaliwal.

The report also suggests that the Toronto Maple Leafs are interested, but that the offers, in general, aren't good enough to get Tanev out of Vancouver right now. The 28-year-old had two goals and 11 points in 42 games this season. He has two years remaining on his current contract that comes with a cap hit of $4.45 million. Teams could become more and more aggressive as the draft approaches.

Olli Juolevi, who underwent a microdiscectomy procedure for a disc in his lower-back, should be fine by the time training camp starts.

"It’s just a minor surgery — he should be up and going in four to six weeks," Canucks GM Jim Benning said. "They are pretty simple operations now and it’s bit of a setback, but he’s just going to have to train harder at the end of the summer to be ready to go." Juolevi was taken with the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. He had seven goals and 19 points in 38 SM-liiga games last season.

Olli Juolevi doesn't have a video game problem and Canucks GM Jim Benning feels the prospect defender is coming along fine.

"This is the first I'm hearing of it," Benning told Ben Kuzma of The Vancouver Province. "And in talking to (Juolevi's head coach at TPS Turka), he said Olli had put in the work in the gym and he had bought in that way. Olli is a serious guy and wants to do well." There was a report, which was later debunked, that Juolevi's career could be in jeopardy because of a video game addiction. However, it was referring to a different unnamed prospect.

The Athletic's Mike Halford thinks that highly touted rookie Elias Pettersson could start the season on a line with fellow Swedish rookie Jonathan Dahlen as well as center Bo Horvat.

Pettersson will likely start on the wing but it's likely that he eventually will end up at center. It is unlikely that the fifth overall pick in the 2017 Draft will be sent to the minors after training camp but of course you never know. "I don’t know, to be honest," Pettersson said. "If that’s what’s best for me to prepare for the NHL, but I want to play in the NHL as quick as possible. If that [means] playing in the AHL first, I will do that, but I want to play in the NHL as quick as possible."
