CRAZY_4_NAZZY Posted September 9, 2020 Share Posted September 9, 2020 The Canucks need to start investing more into their ECHL system and developing prospects from that level too. From what I recall, the Kalamazoo Wings don't have a goaltending coach and we dont know how much Sanford, Johnson, and Higgins visit. I remember reading Michael Gartieg's (Former Canuck prospect) article saying that it was difficult to work on his game when there wasn't much mentorship when he was in the ECHL. Jake Kielly was a highly touted guy coming out of the NCAA. Not saying he would be this NHL stud but I think the Canucks need to start devoting more resources to helping use the ECHL as another avenue to the AHL and NHL. Toronto already uses the Growlers as a developmental place, its no wonder why the Marlies do so well with lots of injection year after year from their ECHL affiliate.
