Good nose for the puck, goes to the dirty areas, stays out of the extra curricular stuff, protects the puck well, real soft hands, likes the back hand. Lot's to look forward to that's for DAMN sure

1 season.

And he isnt going to pan out?

Technically, ALL prospects may not pan out. I singled out Rodin because he doesn't possess the skills to become a lock for the top-6 and his lack of size and grit will limit his bottom-6 potential as well. The most we can hope for is another Mason Raymond. I hope he proves me wrong though.

He's probably going to be the best player out of all of our current prospects.
I don't think he'll ever be a star in the NHL, but I could see him being a consistent 20-30 goal player.
Plus if he could bulk up a bit and get into the 200-220lb range, he could be a real force.


30 goals is a star. Especially for such a big kid, he does so much more than just score goals. Did you see all those back-checks? I can't wait for this kid to crack the line-up

Did he do all this in just 8 games with the Wolves? :shock:

From the video: protects the puck well, hard backcheck and hard on puck battles. Slick pickpocketing ability. And he's 19... Let's hope he keeps progressing.

Hey everyone, I don't know if u guys watched the summer summit online. They had Niklas Jensen and Brendan Guance answer questions from season ticket holders. I was truly surprised by jensens personal growth and just his overall demeanor. This guy will be a stud for us, u can just tell that he is a gifted player and a locker room leader in the making. So excited to have him in our organization..

No way Jensen will be in front of Kass. I'd rather want it to be Jensen-Gaunce-Kass.

I was at the summit tonight... Jensen was easily the best player on the ice. Frankie Corrado was the next best player on the ice. Frankie will be a player... Wicked skater and great hands in the skills drills. I am going to chalk Gaunces performance up to a long tiring week... He looked pretty slow and the hands looked to have a bit of concrete on them. Oh and the other eye catcher out there tonight in my opinion was Cain Franson. He looked great and has a heck of a shot!

yup. 8 games, and he was impressive in all of them, and he had a hatty in one of them.

None of his goals really seemed sniperish but I like the one he scored from right in front of the net. Can't knock a guy whose not afraid to stand in the dirty areas and take a beating to get a good scoring chance. Looks like hes got some great puck moving potential too.

This just proves how much you follow the Canucks prospects.

Rodin does have the skill to be top 6.

He reminds me a lot of Martin Erat.

If he pans out to be the perennial 50 point player Erat is, I'll be over the moon.
