Big blow to the kid but good to get it done now and be ready for the start of next season.

Regardless he is a bust of a draft pick because it happened in the first place. Shows he is fragile and too small to play in the NHL :mrgreen:

Seeing how long it took Kesler to recover from his hip surgery I'm glad Shink has decided to do it now.


I'm happy they are doing it now vice later. Hopefully he can spend his summer prepping for camp instead of rehabbing. Thing is, considering their experience with Kesler's hip I'm comfy that the Canuck brass have the right approach on it. If it was a back issue, however... :crazy:

Oddly enough, I now have the theme song from "Life Goes On" stuck in my head after reading your post.

No shit eh.
Tough blow for HS. Sets back the development of a blue chipper...of which we have so few

And yes...he has been what amounts to a blue chip prospect coming out of his draft year. Any kid ranked in the top 10 but falls doesn't lose this tag after 6 months...especially after showing well at his 1st NHL camp and going back to junior to dominate
Edit-ok dominate may be a tad optimistic but when did this injury take place and how long was he playing through it with eyes on Malmo?

The same goes for Lack, and his hip surgeries. This shouldn't impact Hunter's development too much. Way less than playing on a bad hip for a few years, and learning a bunch of terrible habits to compensate for a bad hip. I don't see Hunter in the lineup next season, but, he will get a good year in the AHL, where he needs to be anyways. And, enough with the crap about him being small. This was not a being small injury.

According to family, the Canucks signed Dane Fox (of the Erie Otters) to an entry level contract.
@megg_fox : So very proud of my brother @dane_fox !! Signing his 1st NHL contract with the Vancouver Canucks #proudsis #dreamcometrue

Canucks Army is skeptical.
Dane Fox, a unsigned overage free agent who is producing at 2 PPG. @glitch80 spent the weekend tweeting all the Canucks players in hopes of getting their attention and sharing the name of the player with GM Mike Gillis. The problem is, unsigned overagers rarely (ed note: almost never) pan out in the NHL.

He's also aggressive as hell, judging by the number of penalty minutes he's racked up. There's no downside to the signing, doesn't even affect the contract limit as his contract slides this year.

As for Shinkaruk, injuries happen, not much you can do. It's up to him to work hard and come back from it even stronger. He'll be able to do a ton of upper body strengthening which he badly needs, but might be a little behind in leg strength for training camp. Hopefully he recovers well and continues to be a top prospect.

Interesting signing, the kid is putting up good numbers but he is an undrafted overager. Archibald put up decent numbers as a 20 year old in the OHL too. Apparently he is Gaunces line mate. Apparently he isn't the greatest skater either, but hey Chef Boi RD is optimistic with the signing

Glen Healey said the Canucks were a lock for the playoffs. I'm feeling pretty good about the Nucks' making the playoffs, but once a knucklehead like Healey jumps on board, it starts to worry me. Hopefully, there's no Healey curse...other than the cure of Healey being Healey.

The Chatham Voice, on Dane Fox - Dec 24:

Dane Fox has come a long way in his five Ontario Hockey League seasons. From playing for a powerhouse London Knights team, to going unselected in his NHL draft year on a weak Erie Otters club, to helping the same Otters franchise build into one of the country’s top teams.

He also happened to lead the OHL in goal scoring this season.

“My success this season has been a pleasant surprise,” said Fox about his pace of more than goal per game this year. “I am focusing more in practices and trying to do the little things that seem to add up, like shooting more, stopping in front of the net. I am also taking care of my body off the ice.”

Fox, who was the OHL’s player of the month in November, is tearing up the ice, leading the league in goals by bundles, and playing a key offensive role on a team already loaded with threats at forward, including Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Connor Brown, Washington Capitals first rounder Andre Burakovsky, Vancouver Canucks first rounder Brandon Gaunce, and possible future NHL first overall pick Connor McDavid.
