Jordan Schroeder is confident he’ll be ready for training camp so he can show the Canucks he deserves the one-way contract that was announced on Wednesday. Vowing to be recovered from May 21 shoulder labrum surgery by mid-September training camp the 5-foot-8 175-pound centre was pumped after getting the deal — for one year and $600000 — out of the way. He was also just as upbeat over his recuperation from the major surgery to his left shoulder. “They told me all along I should be ready for camp” said Schroeder the Canucks first-round draft pick (22nd overall) in 2009. “My physiotherapist says I’m way ahead of schedule. I’m skating again though I haven’t been doing any shooting yet.” The key now for Schroeder is to show he belongs in the Canucks’ bottom six forwards with the top six pretty much determined. Free agent Brad Richardson was signed with the intention of centering the third line so versatility will be an important trait for Schroeder to show.
