Looks like Wags saved me the trouble of writing profiles on the invitees:




I think Braeden Bowman and Jacob Maillet look like the ones to watch, when it comes to these invitees. I could see either (or both) of them earning contracts with Abby


Brock Otten (OHL Prospects) rated Bowman and Maillet the 5th and 11th, respectively, best re-entries (from the OHL) for 2023 NHL draft.




And the Canucks system could certainly use a RH power forward (Bowman) and, even moreso, a RH centre with defensive ability (Maillet).


Maillet was voted the Western Confernece’s best defensive forward in the OHL coaches’ poll, as well as the “most underrated” player.

Bowman was voted second most underrated.


Bowman (6’2”, 194) had 33 goals and 39 assists (in just 54 games played) last season.


Maillet (6’1”, 190 lbs) had 24 goals and 56 assists. 

Definitely sounds like two players to keep an eye on. Thanks for sharing!

Did the schedule change? When it first came out and i bought tickets, I could have sworn the VAN vs EDM was at 2:30.

It absolutely changed because in my calendar it's set for that time.

I know we’re still seen as in bottom half of the league, but the prospect pool has really taken a huge leap under Rutherford and Allvin. 

Even without our blue chippers in Lekkerimaki (who’s been on fire lately) and Willander there’s a lot of interesting guys to watch.  Maybe not top of the lineup guys but some nice depth to the pool and a notable uptick in development.

Remember everyone, these games set the tone for the regular season, so make sure to over react.

Well, for me personally, this is a way to escape from harsh reality, so , yes, I will overreact for sure.
