Nicklas Jensen’s transition to SEL among top Vancouver Canucks’ prospect storylines in 2012-13


By Larenzo Jensen
September 22nd, 2012

Vancouver Canucks organization used the 2012 draft to augment their forward talent levels. Already well-stocked on the back end and between the pipes, forwards with grit and size were added to help balance out the positional depth. With that said, many of the interesting stories shaping up for this season come from players that have already spent time in the team's developmental system.

Pro
Top Pro Prospect
Zack Kassian, RW, Chicago Wolves (AHL)
Regardless of whether he is to ply his trade with the Canucks this season or their AHL affiliate, Zack Kassian is the club's top pro prospect. At 6’3”, 214 pounds, he gives the Canucks size and power, characteristics that have been in short supply in the organization. Due to the lockout, the team assigned him to Chicago to continue his development. He should play significant minutes for the Wolves and will look to fine-tune all aspects of his game with a focus on improving his consistency.

Bounce Back
Yann Sauve, D, Chicago Wolves (AHL)
Sauve is a big, strong defenseman that plays good positional hockey. He is also another prospect that brings meanness and physicality to the Wolves' lineup. Once projected to be a sound two-way defenseman, his puck-handling ability and offensive contributions left something to be desired in his second pro season. In 73 games, he scored three goals and nine points. With some new, talented players joining the Wolves this season, it is hoped that Sauve can start to fulfill the untapped potential shown prior to being drafted 48th overall in 2008.

Offensive Breakout
Jordan Schroeder, C, Chicago Wolves (AHL)
The diminutive pivot continued to improve on the score sheet for the Wolves, and there is no reason to believe that he should regress this year. Schroeder was one of the Wolves' most consistent players last year and now has another year of experience playing against men in the AHL. His ability to read the play, speed to get into position, and high hockey IQ should help put Schroeder among the top point-producers for Chicago.

Junior
Top Junior Prospect
Brendan Gaunce, C, Belleville Bulls (OHL)
With Nicklas Jensen choosing to play in the SEL this season, Gaunce takes the spotlight as the top junior prospect. In the 2011-12 campaign, Gaunce nearly doubled his offensive totals from the 2010-11 season, finishing the year with 68 points in 68 games. The defensive aspects of his game have always been a strength, as has his attention to detail in his own zone. His burgeoning shot and faceoff skills add up to what is becoming a very complete package, providing further evidence of why the Canucks were happy to find him available at 26th overall in the 2012 draft.

Unsigned for 2013-14
David Honzik, G, Cape Breton Screaming Eagles (QMJHL)
This season will be a crucial one for Honzik, following his offseason acquisition by the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles. The big, athletic Czech goaltender lost the starting job over the course of the 2011-12 season with Victoriaville. It will be a test of character and mental composition to put his disappointing season behind him, and focus on beating out Philippe Trudeau and Alex Bureau for the starting position with the Eagles. He has the physical tools and athleticism, but his technique will surely be scrutinized as he fights for a pro contract.

Offensive Breakout
Frank Corrado, D, Sudbury Wolves (OHL)
Though the fast and spirited defender had a slight dip in offensive production last season, there were promising signs such as his huge spike in his plus-minus rating. After a combined -26 rating in his first two seasons in Sudbury, Corrado led the club last season with a +26 rating. With constant defensive combination changes and a premium put on defensive responsibilities, Corrado was not in the best position to loosen up and play as offensively as he might have liked. His tenacious play still earned him an "A" on his jersey as an assistant captain. Hopefully more stability with the defensive corps will allow him the freedom to exhibit his excellent puck-moving ability and first outlet pass.

Amateur

Top Amateur Prospect
Patrick McNally, D, Harvard University Crimson (ECAC)
The Harvard sophomore was a finalist for ECAC Rookie of the Year honors due to his excellent offensive abilities. An above-average passer, with strong puck-rushing acumen, he must continue to learn the defensive aspects of the game to round into a complete player. A key component to Harvard’s power play success, his mobility and quickness are nearly NHL-ready. If he can learn to use his 6’2” frame in a more imposing manner, he has the potential to have an even better second college season.

Offensive Breakout
Joseph Labate, C, University of Wisconsin Badgers (WCHA)
Also entering his sophomore season, Joseph Labate has nothing but opportunity in front of him. With strong hockey sense, a 6’4” frame and long reach, this net driving power forward has the tools in place to improve upon his 20 points in 37 games in 2011-12. He needs to improve his first few strides and add bulk to his lanky build, but he is part of a program at Wisconsin that has produced a number of NHL players. Look for the Badgers to use him more frequently this year, improving his chances of having a productive season.

Unsigned for 2013-14
Jeremy Price, D, Colgate University Raiders (ECAC)
Entering his senior year with the Raiders, Price has progressed steadily throughout his tenure at Colgate University. Each season he has improved on previous offensive totals, but more impressively, he has developed into a better defender. He has been named one of the team's three captains for the 2012-13 season and will continue skating on the top pairing and both special teams units for the Raiders. At this point, one would expect Price to continue his upward development, secure a pro contract, and play for the Wolves in the 2013-14 season.

Europe

Top European Prospect
Nicklas Jensen, RW, AIK IF (SEL)
Jensen decided it was in his best interests to develop against men in the Swedish Elite League next season. With the Canucks unable to assign the 19-year-old to the AHL level, the club has supported his decision to make the transition to the pro game. Now a short walk from the main arena in Stockholm, the smooth-skating puck wizard will hone his craft with AIK. It will be interesting to see how the Canucks prized Danish forward stacks up against the larger, stronger competition in Sweden’s Elitserien league. He has averaged over 17 minutes per game through his first three regular season contests and should be a big part of the AIK offense this season.

Bounce Back
Henrik Tommernes, D, Frolunda HC (SEL)
In the 2010-11 season, Tommernes was Frolunda’s leading scorer amongst defensemen with 20 points through 47 games. He only managed 14 points during the regular season last year but the offensive-minded defenseman cranked it up for the playoffs, scoring a goal and four points in six games. The knock on the blueliner is his lack of physical play and defensive abilities, particularly when checking in tight quarters. If the Frolunda coaching staff can target these deficiencies, Tommernes’ game will be more complete and should help improve his production.

I just like that size is finally a priority, whenever the draft pick choices available do not provide an easy choice for a smaller, skilled guy. For too long, random choices were being made of the 5'11-6'0 variety.

I'm actually more excited for Labate than most of our prospects (minus Jensen, Gaunce, and Kassian).
Labate could be a very good checking line forward for us down the line, could turn out to be a very steady 2-way player.

The main difference in Gaunce and Kesler's playing style aside from speed is that Gaunce is a pass first style forward and Kesler isn't.

The Canucks prospect pool does look very solid and is underrated around the league.

However, that being said, none of our prospects look like they will develop into elite NHL players (at this moment, but of course, I could be wrong)....Which is why many rankings feature the Canucks near the bottom because while the players will most likely play in the NHL, they most likely won't develop into the 1st liners that many teams look for when they draft a player.

The reason for this, is obviously, because we don't draft high enough to get a "sure star" so we take players who have a higher chance to make the NHL, instead of a "hit or miss" player.

If we've got one complete line of high end prospects I think we're in pretty good shape to fill in this teams holes in the next couple of years.

Jensen - Gaunce - Kassian

Connauton Corrado

Lack

And a complete line of second tier prospects who have the potential to be just as good if not better.

Rodin - Labate - Schroeder (moves to wing)

McNally Sauve

Cannata

There's tons of good talent there without even including our dark horse prospects. This team should not be worried about it's future. It's not like they're in a rush to fill any holes in the next few seasons.

Yes, we don't have super elite prospects, but we have multiple prospects at all positions that could have
NHL careers with the right development.

I'm as excited as for the likes of Corrado, Cannata, Mallet, as Jensen, Kassian, Gaunce

Funny how he has more assists then goals pretty every season other than 09/10. You would think a shoot first centreman wouldn't have more assist then goals...

Maybe if they gave him a winger that can actually finish he would have more success in that department. When Raymond had his one good season, Kesler was a great setup guy. Same thing when he played with Samuelsson, and when he played with Demitra and Sundin.

Kelser can pass, he just needs Booth to finish more, and to have another consistent winger.

I don't think we're talking about the same Ryan Kesler.

If you honestly think he's even remotely a playmaking center then i don't even know what to think..

Wonder how many assists he gets from shooting the puck then people getting goals off tips/rebounds?

Ryan Kesler is SHOOT FIRST CENTERMAN. Throw all the stats you want at me, if you honestly think he isn't, then you don't watch the Canucks.

How did he get 50 assists in 09/10 playing with Raymond and Samuelsson, who both don't typically score tip in goals? You can't seriously tell me Raymond would have been a 25 goal scorer without Kesler that season...

And how did he get 33 assists the previous season playing with Demitra, Sundin, and Raymond, again players who don't typically score tip in goals?

Even two seasons ago when he scored 41 goals, he had 32 assists. If he's scoring 41 goals, I couldn't give two sh!ts if he has less assists. We were the highest scoring team in the league that year, what more do you want?

Kesler's a good playmaker, you're just bitter cause he had an off season. And why do you really care if he shoots the puck? He probably has the best shot on the team. Why wouldn't he shoot? Seems to me, fans always used to complain that the team didn't shoot enough.

Friesen could become a very solid 4C or dependable 3C and as much as I think they would both endear themselves to our fans, I think LaBate will become a bigger Higgins-esque 2nd line tweener (Higgins-esque as in a consistent force that gives his all every game of the year and has that offensive tool kit, He's also much bigger though)

Yeah. I don't know Labate as much as Frisen, which is hardly at all. Frisen from what I heard skates fast and hard, doesn't quit, has some offensive, great defensively, great at faceoffs, and hits like a truck. I like all those attributes as my third line center.

But Labate could surprise me.

If Tavares stays where he is right now, and the team stays the same way, he won't. Tampa has a shot.

You are heavily undermining JT's abilities - while he hasn't scored 60 goals and 90+ points like Stamkos yet, he has quietly had a breakout season with 81 points in 82 games while carrying the franchise on his back.

Stamkos has had Marty St. Louis on his line, and other offensive threats like Lecavalier and Malone on his team. Tavares did everything pretty much on his own. The only offensive punch the Islanders had was the Tavares line, where he played with two previously considered as career AHLers that he transformed into 60-point players.

As for who has the brighter future between the Lightning and the Islanders, it is debatable - Tampa Bay is not as stable as you think. Firstly, both teams have goaltending problems with no proven fix - Tampa has the slight edge in that they have Lindback and Vasilevsky.

Secondly, both teams have defensive problems. Tampa has Brewer, Ohlund and Salo - but they are all old. Only Hedman is a young up-and-comer, and Slater Koekkoek is the only promising defensive prospect they have. Meanwhile, the Islanders look set on defense with veteran presence in Streit, and three young up and comers in Calvin de Haan, Travis Hamonic and Griffin Reinhart. New York's top-4 is going to be set for years to come with de Haan, Hamonic and Reinhart. Tampa, meanwhile, still struggle to fill those spots with young up and coming defensive core.

Thirdly, although Tampa appears to have the edge offensively, their future is much more unclear than the Islanders'. St. Louis is 37, Lecavalier is 32 and Malone is turning 33. Brett Connolly is the only top-tier winger in their system, and Namestnikov is the only top-6 center they have to replace Lecavalier. Meanwhile, the Islanders have solid prospects group that includes Ryan Strome, Grabner and Nino Niederreiter. In a few years, Tampa's offense could be more maligned than New York's.

If New York fixes its goaltending, then it has a legitimate chance to being a playoff team (top 6 centers Tavares and Strome - top 4 with de Haan, Hamonic, Reinhart) with contending potential in a few years. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, needs to address its backend, its goaltending if the Lindback experiment fails, and its forwards in preparation of St. Louis's retirement and Lecavalier's eventual further regression into a bottom 6 player.

This is true, I still think we need atleast one elite forward prospect to take over when the Sedins retire. Jensen could be that guy, but I see him being more of a 70-80 point guy in the NHL in his prime. We should definately try to trade up and pick in the top 10 somehow in this draft.
