Vancouver, BC - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has recalled forward Adam Gaudette from the Utica Comets.

 

Gaudette, 22, has split the season between Vancouver and Utica this season. The Braintree, MA native has registered six points (2-4-6) and 10 penalty minutes in 31 games with Vancouver. He registered his first career NHL goal on Nov. 24 at LA. The 6-1, 183-pound forward has also accumulated seven points (4-3-7) in seven games with the Comets. He set an AHL career-high in goals (2) and tied a career-high in points (3) on Jan. 5 to help the Comets defeat Cleveland 6-2 on Jan. 5.

Comets fans: “Why can’t we have nice things!”

 

(Just kidding. Y’all know I love Utica and their fans.)

 

Anyway, nice to see Gaudette coming back up. He deserves to be here and just fell prey to the numbers game. He’s an NHL grade player. Has only strengthened his case while down in the AHL.

Seems that AG has more to learn at the NHL level than he does at the AHL level - just caught in a numbers/waivers eligibility game at the NHL level unfortunately.

Leivo is on IR and they have no extra F with Pettersson also injured.

It was nice to see him find his offensive touch.  Could have developed his overall game there - PP / PK / Leadership etc.  We know he can play but let him develop for a bit.  Hope he gets to go back for a while.

This is what I’m wondering...EP40 out longer than expected, someone else hurt or is there another trade coming?  Please don’t be EP

That was my question too. Why bring him up? Pettersson will miss a game or two, maybe three. But I thought Granlund would fill in at C?

 

Or, is someone getting traded? ;)

Has nothing to do with EP. He's out anyways. So why not put him in IR and use that roster spot to bring AG back up and add some speed to the team. 

 

Schaller will likely sit out next game.

Pettersson is likely being put on IR retroactive to January 3rd when he got hurt. You need to be unable to play for a minimum of 7 days once you're on IR and EP will pass that, so this allows Gaudette to be called up to gain more NHL experience whether he gets into the lineup or not (maybe they prefer Gaudette at center instead of Granlund). Business as usual it seems.

They had an extra spot open at F.  Leivo is on IR and is probably not ready to go for Thursday.

Bo - Sutter - Granlund - Beagle is more than good enough for the interim.

 

What necessitated removing Gaudette from an environment he was thriving in? The Comets were on a solid roll as well.

and he'll probably play about 6-7 min if he gets in the lineup.

Perhaps an opportunity to see Gaudette in a top 6 offensive role (sheltered)? Gaudette is producing numbers in Utica in this position, so maybe with Petey out, we can have a brief look.
