He was also a former Chicago Wolve from 2011-2013 when the Canucks were affiliated with that organization.

 

He played along the likes of former Canucks Jordan Schroeder, Zack Kassian, Chris Tanev, and Eddie Lack.

 

Should Rathbone make the main roster, Hunt will be the primary PP guy for Abbotsford

I was wondering if he was the same guy.

 

I seem to recall watching him play in the prospects tourney a number of years back.

I do believe he attended Canucks prospect camp/Penticton Tourney in 2011 along with Antoine Roussel. So I think you are correct.

Don't start....... with the mike stuff

I literally got sucker punched and beaten up in grade 9 by an older kid named Mike Hunt. Make of that what you will.

Haha, my brother played hockey with this guy in Peewee, his dad was the coach.  That team also produced another fringe NHLer.

 

Good for Brad signing with his hometown team.  Must be pretty awesome.  He'll be great depth in Abby who can be called up and actually play NHL games.  He played 59 games for the Wild in 2019-2020.
