Mallet has been assigned to Kalamazoo:

http://www.chicagowo...nt-to-kalamazoo

The Vancouver Canucks have reassigned center Alex Mallet (muh-LAY) from the Chicago Wolves to the ECHL’s Kalamazoo Wings.
The 20-year-old forward has skated in 13 games with the Wolves this season during his professional debut, accruing seven penalty minutes.

The Amqui, Quebec, native posted career-highs with 34 goals, 47 assists, 81 points, and 132 penalty minutes in 68 QMJHL games with Rimouski Oceanic last season. He ranked first on Rimouski with 34 goals and 132 penalty minutes and second on the squad with 47 assists and 81 points.

The Vancouver Canucks second-round draft choice, 57th overall, in the 2012 National Hockey League Entry draft also shared first on Rimouski and seventh in the league with 25 points (10G, 15A) in 21 postseason matchups in Oceanic’s run to the QMJHL Finals last year.

Overall, MALLET accumulated 54 goals, 66 assists, 120 points, and 303 penalty minutes in 203 career QMJHL games with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and Rimouski Oceanic spanning four seasons (2008-12).


Hopefully he will get some playing time down there - and then will be back in the AHL when the lock-out is over.

The last Wolves game I seen I thought Mallet was one of the best forwards. He made no mistakes and threw some big hits as well as commanding the corners and coming away with the puck. Kassian scored that game but I thought Mallet looked better and more engaged in the game.

Mallet is a far better player than Desbiens, over the last couple years it's become obvious that Desbiens has gotten worse. Hopefully Mallet has good production in the ECHL, and hopefully we will see him soon on the Wolves again.

Good decision. He needs to be getting top minutes on the first or second line somewhere. This guy has a good hockey IQ and can be much more than a 4th line plugger in the NHL one day.

Hopefully he'll showcase his offensive game down there. I think it's the right call, he has played well but he's not getting the minutes to develop.

He has played better than his stats indicate, but I think some good offensive minutes will help Mallet's game.

It looks like Archibald has taken his spot for now.

Owning our own affiliate would be nice, say, in Abbotsford.

Don't know what that has to do with Mallet being sent down.

He would've been sent down, regardless of the location of the AHL affiliate.

I just think it would be nice if we owned/controlled our own AHL affiliate so that players like Mallet, Polasek and Archibald could all play on the team at the same time and it didn't always have to be an 'either or' situation.

The location thing is just a fantasy of mine, not really relevant to player development eh.

Registered his first pro point, an assist. Has 1 point in 6 games so far, hopefully he's getting big minutes down there to develop his game.

After a slow start from Mallet, going pointless in his first 5 games, he has 3 points in his last 5 games (including 2 goals).

Looks like he's starting to come alive. This might be just what he needs for his development.

Thank god he's getting some points, I had high hopes for this kid and to see him take so long to get a point kinda diminished my hopes for him.

He's +4 in his last 5 too, so it seems good things are happening when he's out there. 4 shots last night too, so hopefully this means the start of bigger things - and more opportunities - for him.

Good to see his last 5 games are starting to look much better.

Mallet matches Gaunces 4 point night with a 4 point night of his own.

He had 1 goal and 3 assists in a 7-2 win. Looks like he's picking it up now.

He's slowly creeping towards becoming a point per game player with 8 points in 13 games.

Great for Mallet! How are his PIM's down there? Is he fighting more or has he been giving his hands a rest from demolishing Carter Bancks?

Nice to see him putting up points. Great for his confidence. Again, his shooting has gone up, and that might be even more encouraging than his point totals.

Hopefully he can continue this then step into the AHL on the 3rd line when the season starts and he will have his condidence, and maybe he can get some points.

Only 2 penalty minutes believe it or not.

Looks like he's focusing on his play rather than dropping the gloves. We already know he's capable of that anyways.

That's great to hear. He really had offensive upside in the Q. 5 goal games are a big deal in the Q and don't just happen by accident. Mackinnon did it as well but Crosby couldn't (both Mallet and Crosby played for the Oceanic). His 2nd year QMJHL numbers look quite similar to what MacKinnon is on pace for as well. MacKinnon will not have played quite as many games but then Mallet spent a lot of time in the box because he could fight too. Definitely a "flashes of brilliance" kind of guy. Easily worth a 2nd pick.

I can't believe you are comparing Mackinnon, a possible number 1 pick, with Mallet, an ECHL'er who was pointless in the AHL

I don't think he's necessarily trying to compare Mallet and MacKinnon, rather he's emphasizing how significant a feat it is to score 5 goals in a game in junior.
