Found February 03, 2014 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Canucks brought in more reinforcements for their injury ravaged blue line on Sunday, recalling defenceman Yann Sauve from their Utica AHL affiliate. Sauve, the team’s second-round pick (41st) overall in the 2008 NHL draft, will replace Yannick Weber – who was injured in Friday’s 4-3 loss in Winnipeg. Weber, according to reports, was sent back to Vancouver on Sunday. There was no indication on Sunday what was the nature of the injury to Weber, who is on the roster of Switzerland’s team for the upcoming Sochi Olympic tournament. Sauve shapes up as the No. 10 option on the Canucks’ organizational depth chart, behind just-recalled Frank Corrado. Defencemen Andrew Alberts (head), Chris Tanev (fractured thumb) and Kevin Bieksa (leg) are also out with injuries.

At first glance, it appears that the Vancouver Canucks won this trade. Habs GM Marc

Bruins-Canucks Live: B’s Renew Rivalry With Struggling Canucks At TD Garden

10 a.m.: The word hatred is thrown around a lot in sports, perhaps a little bit too much. However, when it comes to the Boston Bruins and Vancouver Canucks, that word certainly seems to apply to the rivalry these two teams have built. “I think there’s definitely some hatred for that team,” Bruins forward Brad Marchand told reporters Monday after B’s practice. “And they...

Ty Anderson: Bobby Lou, Canucks back in Boston
