Jett Woo traded to the Calgary Hitmen.

I didn't really follow the story that closely, but didn't Benning dislike the Hitmen organisation so much that he kept Virtanen up as a rookie, rather than have him waste a year with the Hitmen?
Can Woo suit up in the AHL?
No
How come?

Btw, Elias was asked if he felt there was some specific skill he had been able to improve in his first year in the NHL:
"My English."

Blob is being purposely obtuse this time.

I get that it's difficult to determine when it's on purpose.

Eriksson article, in Swedish ;http://www.hockeysverige.se/2019/05/02/ ... gt-hundra/

Loui Eriksson: "I and the coach do not really go a hundred together" (Thanks, Google Translate)

Per; Is he talking about Green?

I assume this isn't a good thing, mmm?
Or is it :?:
I would question Green's competence if he wasn't on Eriksson's case constantly.

OK, folks; It's out on TSN now so it dont matter!

Eriksson: 'The coach and I don’t really get on 100 per cent'
Vancouver Canucks forward Loui Eriksson admitted to Sweden's HockeySverigethat there is friction in his relationship with head coach Travis Green, and cited that as a reason for his diminished offensive output with the team.

Eriksson has scored a total of 31 goals in three seasons since joining the Canucks after scoring 30 with the Boston Bruins in 2015-16. He has spent the past two seasons under Green, and averaged just 14:04 of ice time last season - his lowest mark since the 2007-08 season with the Dallas Stars.

“The coach and I don’t really get on 100 per cent,” Eriksson told the Swedish outlet, as translated by the Vancouver Province. “It is difficult when I do not get the same trust that I received from all the other coaches I had during my career. Of course it is tough on that front.”

Eriksson was healthy for the full season for the first time since joining the Canucks this year, but sat out one game in March as a healthy scratch.

He finished with 11 goals and 29 points in 81 games with a minus-11 rating. A six-time 20-goal scorer with two 30-goal seasons under his belt, Eriksson said he's been placed in a more defensive role under Green, limiting his ability to produce offensively.

"Last two seasons I have played less and in a defensive role," Eriksson said, via Google Translate. "I also cannot make the same points as before if I do not play so much in the roles I had before. In this way, it is not really possible to compare, but I must do my best and fight on."

"Of course it is boring for that part," he added of the defensive role with decreased ice time.

The 33-year-old has three seasons remaining on six-year contract he signed with the Canucks as a free agent in 2016. Eriksson, who carries a team-high $6 million cap hit, said he's ignoring speculation that he could be bought out this off-season.

"People can say what they want and it can spread quite quickly," Eriksson said. "As it looks now, I will play in Vancouver next season as well, but you never know what can happen. We'll see what happens after the summer."

Eriksson will play for Sweden at the world hockey championship next week for the first time since 2015.

He's still only 18, need to be 19 by a certain date this year to play in the AHL next year, I think June 1? Really late bday which is a good thing as he's quite developed for being very young for his draft class.

It's either the Canucks or WHL for him next year.

If he's deemed not quite ripe yet they can do the same thing for him as they did for OLY, if they want.
That way he could put some jingle in his pocket on the qt.
