Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has recalled centre Michael Chaput from the AHL Utica Comets.

 

Chaput, 25, has appeared in four games for the Utica Comets this season, recording two points (1-1-2) and six penalty minutes. 

 

Last season, the Ile-Bizard, Quebec native established career highs in goals (4), assists (5), points (9) and games played (68) and won 52.7% of face-offs taken. Over the course of his career, Chaput has played in 126 NHL games and collected 17 points (6-11-17).

Interesting. Boucher and Goldobin have racked up plenty of points, yet we bring in Chaput. Green must want a center, but I thought Eriksson was injured?

Would much rather see this for next game:

 

Baertschi - Horvat - Boeser

Sedin - Sedin - Vanek

Granlund - Sutter - Gagner

Dorsett - Burmistrov - Goldobin (2 skilled euros + Dorsett for toughness)

It's a safe choice - Sutter also missed practice today due to illness.

Regarding waivers, Chaput would need to play more than 10 games or be on the roster for more than 30 days to be waiver eligible when they decide to assign him back to the Comets.

Sutter is not feeling well either so Chappy makes sense.

Could be Sutter that's out, hence the C call-up. Reports are that Sutter is just feeling unwell. If it was merit based, and a winger to replace Eriksson, you'd have to think it'd be one of Boucher/Goldobin. Utica's meager centre depth takes another hit.

We already have wingers to replace Eriksson. Rather than scratching one of Boeser/Virtanen (or Burmistrov), they'll now be playing.

Goldobin needs more practice time at AHL so Chaput does make sense just to back up Sutter if he cannot go tomorrow.  The Canucks is in East Coast trip so Utica is just a short flight away if there's another injury during the trip.  He is more likely to stay in for a few days, if not more.   The Canucks is more likely to send back Chaput and call up someone once the trip is over.

Goldy is getting PK time - I'll repeat that - PK time down in Utica and he's doing well. Lets leave that be for a while, we'll get a great player soon. 

 

 

He will get alot of break aways

Considering there was no update on Eriksson, he may be out for a while.

 

If Sutter plays next game, then I think Chaput will likely be our 13th forward.

 

If Sutter doesn't play next game, then Chaput, Virtanen, Boeser will all be in the lineup.

Eriksson didn't travel with the team so I'm guessing he's out for at least the remainder of October.
