Sounded like he had a really solid development camp. Scored a nice goal in the scrimmage and lots of positive comments from several writers like Chris Faber and David Quadrelli.


Ryan Johnson has shown to find some shrewd WHL free agents.

This is simply great.  Love how the Vancouver Canucks are using Abby as a landing spot for WHL overagers...Nychuk, Wouters, Schiememen, Nielsen, Kannok-Leipert.  Love Nychuk's production this past season with the Wheaties.

On Jeremy Colliton; New head coach for the Abbotsford Canucks;

Very young for such a position even though he coached Blackhawks for four. That being said, he's been through enough. 

At no point do I see him taking the reins of the Vancouver Canucks. Not at all.....



I see this in a different light maybe. I look at his record in the AHL and although short it was solid. He definitely took the reigns too early for an NHL job, but that wasn’t really his doing. The Hawks wanted a lame duck coach to ride out a few dumpy seasons and he actually faired quite well in those 3 seasons. Finished over 500 except for last season, and was close again (24 wins, 25 losses). And Chicago was an absolute dumpster fire last season. We may have a good young up and coming coach in our ranks. Time will tell of course lol.

The organization also announced the additions of former NHLers Mikael Samuelsson and Mike Komisarek to the player development staff.  Samuelsson, 45, most recently served as general manager of Södertälje SK in the Hockey Allsvenskan league for parts of three seasons from 2019-20 to 2021-22. He had a 13-year career in the NHL and made stops in Detroit, Florida, Vancouver, Pittsburgh, the New York Rangers, and San Jose. He collected 346 points in 699 games and also won an Olympic gold medal (2006), gold at the World Championship (2006) and a Stanley Cup in 2007-08 with Detroit. Komisarek played 551 career regular season games over 11 seasons in the NHL as a defenceman with Montreal, Toronto, and Carolina, recording 81 points (14-67-81).The Canucks also shared that Daniel and Henrik Sedin will transition from special advisors to the general manager to new roles within player development and will work with players on and off the ice in Vancouver and Abbotsford.
