A day after the Vancouver Canucks recalled Patrick Wiercioch from the AHL, they have now decided to re-assign him to Utica.

Wiercioch is a former 2nd round pick of the Senators but never fully established himself at the NHL level. He had 12 points in 57 games with the Canucks last season.

Henrik Sedin hasn't logged 13 minutes of action in each of the last three games.

Sedin earned his third assist in seven matches in a 4-2 win over Buffalo on Friday night. He played 12:17 versus the Sabres. "I think we've had a couple of games where their minutes have been 12½. There's been a couple others where it's been 17, said Travis Green referring to the ice time of the Sedin twins. "I see them going back and forth between those numbers."

Brandon Sutter contributed two assists in Friday's 4-2 win against Buffalo.

Sutter helped set up goals by Markus Granlund and Derek Dorsett (shorthanded) in the contest. He has three points in seven appearances this season.

Markus Granlund was back with Brandon Sutter on Friday night against Buffalo.

Granlund didn't last long with the Sedin twins, as coach Travis Green isn't afraid to mix up his combinations on the fly. He has averaged 17:41 of playing time per game, which ranks second among Vancouver's forwards. Granlund finally got on the scoresheet Friday with a goal and an assist in a 4-2 win over the Sabres.

Daniel Sedin found the back of the net Friday in a 4-2 win over Buffalo.

Sedin logged just 11:11 of ice time in the contest. He has only played over 17 minutes once in seven games this season. The Sedins are being deployed differently this year and so far it has worked out well for the Canucks.

Jacob Markstrom allowed two goals on 22 shots in Friday’s 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

The Canucks went into the first intermission trailing 2-1, but they were able to battle back for the win. Markstrom has a 2-2-1 record with a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .902 save percentage this season. He isn’t worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 20 - 11:31 PM

Derek Dorsett scored two goals and an assist in Friday’s 4-2 win over Buffalo.

Dorsett picked up the primary assist on Markus Granlund’s first-period goal. He also added a shorthanded goal in the second period and an empty-netter in the third frame. The Canucks forward is off to a terrific start this season. Not only has he scored in back-to-back games, he’s also up to four goals and five points in seven games. Don’t be fooled by the hot start, he isn’t worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

Michael Chaput will be a healthy scratch in Friday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Chaput hasn't played in a game yet this season. Erik Gudbranson will miss the game because of a suspension.
Oct 20 - 6:46 PM

Jacob Markstrom will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Buffalo Sabres.

Anders Nilsson got the start in last night's game against the Bruins, but Markstrom ended up playing almost 50 minutes in that game. Markstrom has a 1-2-1 record with a 2.88 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage this season.

Patrick Wiercioch has been summoned by the Vancouver Canucks.

Wiercioch has a goal in two AHL games this season. He recorded four goals and 12 points in 57 contests with Colorado in 2016-17.

Erik Gudbranson will serve a one-game suspension for boarding Boston's Frank Vatrano.

That will keep Gudbranson out of Friday's game, but he'll be eligible to return on Sunday. It probably helped Gudbranson's case that he hadn't previously been fined or suspended and thus was not a repeat offender.

Erik Gudbranson will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety for boarding Boston's Frank Vatrano on Thursday.

The hearing will take place on Friday. Vatrano had his back to Gudbranson when the Canucks defender sent him into the boards. Don't be surprised if Gudbranson is suspended for a game or two.
Oct 20 - 12:06 AM

Anders Nilsson was pulled in Thursday's 6-3 loss to the Boston Bruins.

Nilsson lasted just 10:44 in this game, as he allowed four goals on 17 shots in the defeat. Jacob Markstrom entered the game in relief of Nilsson and allowed two more goals on 18 shots. The loss drops Nilsson's record to 1-1-0 on the season. He owns a 3.40 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage so far in 2017-18.
Oct 19 - 10:32 PM

Bo Horvat scored a goal in Vancouver's 6-3 loss to Boston on Thursday night.

Horvat cut Boston's lead to 5-3 late in the second period, but that's as close as the Canucks would come to making it a game. Horvat finished the game with a plus-1 rating and three shots on goal in 19:33 of ice time. The 22-year-old has three goals and no assists in six games this season.
Oct 19 - 10:24 PM

Michael Chaput will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Boston Bruins.

Chaput was re-called from the minors earlier this week. He still hasn't played in an NHL game this season. Alex Biega will also watch the game from the press box. Neither player will have any fantasy value this season.
