Hunt posted 4 assists and 5 points in 14 regular-season games last year after being signed by the Wolves to an Amateur Tryout Contract (ATO) on March 14. He also paced team defensemen and ranked fourth overall on Chicago with 3 assists and 4 points in five Calder Cup playoff outings.

Prior to joining the Wolves, the 23-year-old blueliner led Bemidji State University with 21 assists and ranked third on the team with 26 points in 38 games during his senior campaign.

The Ridge Meadows, British Columbia, native amassed 24 goals, 88 assists, and 112 points while appearing in all 150 games during his college career with Bemidji State from 2008-12.

Great signing for the Wolves. Has produced consistently and will hopefully show that he can do it over a full season. Despite his small stature, he has been remarkably healthy *knock on wood* and has shown that he can play against men, at least in a short spurt.

If we go through another injury plagued season where we have our 13th defensemen playing *knocking again*, or if he dominates at the AHL level, I would like to see the Canucks sign him. He would be a good replacement for one of our more offensive defensemen.

My only concern is that this bumps many of the Canucks prospects down a spot.

I would rather not see the Canucks sign a 5' 9" 171 lb defenceman. Could you imagine him playng against the forwards on LA?

Way to not quote the immense qualifier before that part...

"If we go through another injury plagued season where we have our 13th defensemen playing *knocking again*, or if he dominates at the AHL level" I would like to see the Canucks sign him.

I played hockey with this guy just this summer. Such a class act it's unbelievable.

he thinks, Connauton is one of the best dmans, and he thinks Schroeder and Rodin is equally as good.

I wish him nothing but the best of luck.

Players Nikolaj Ehlers have been compared too by the fan base of the Vancouver Canucks.

5 Jonathan Tavares

I played with Brad in the past and he is definitely a class act. Has a huge heart as he was always one of those kids told he was not big enough. Great character, very shifty and is a very smart player. Has NHL potential with his work ethic for sure.

Canucks didn't sign him, the Wolves did therefore he isn't under contract with us and cannot be called up.
