  1. From Benning: SN: And it looks like they’ll be joined by another young forward in Nils Hoglander, the 20-year-old who was the story of your camp. You said months ago that you thought Hoglander would be able to play in the NHL this season even though his stats in Sweden were just OK. How did you know? JB: Because the things that he is really good at, we figured they would translate to the smaller ice surface and the North American game. He may look small but he’s five-foot-nine and 190 pounds and strong on the puck. In the scrimmage the other day, he went behind the net and bat

  3. Rathbone has confidence, but does he have the skills to start for Canucks? Skill can get you to the NHL, but it’s the confidence you have in those skills that usually keeps a player in The Show. And when it comes to confidence, there’s no denying that 21-year-old Jack Rathbone has it. If he sticks in the NHL after his first Canucks’ training camp, or he ends starting the year as a minor-leaguer, nothing seems likely to faze the defenceman.

  6. Nice article with input from Hoglander's SHL teammates: Ex-Hoglander teammate Adam Tambellini believes Canuck is ready for prime time Adam Tambellini is a Nils Hoglander fan. Tambellini, whose father Steve and brother Jeff both suited up for the Vancouver Canucks, is a former New York Rangers third-round draft pick who is now playing pro in Sweden. His linemates earlier this season with Rogle BK included Hoglander, the 20-year-old winger who is getting a crack at a top-six forward spot at the Canucks’ training camp at Rogers Arena, playing alongs
  7. An exclusive Q&A with Canucks top defence prospect Jack Rathbone “I don’t think anyone goes into a training camp not wanting to make the team. I think that’s definitely a goal of mine.” On Sunday afternoon David Quadrelli and myself sat down with Jack Rathbone to chat for about 25 minutes. We got into everything from his time with Harvard to the Storm Trooper suit that he wore to go with his little brother’s Darth Vader attire on Halloween. Rathbone was drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 draft and signed this past July during training camp 2.0.

A big part of his success comes from his abilities as a distributor. He makes good calls on when to join the rush or play with a more passive posture. Persson maintains a high work rate, with
