Frank Corrado is moving on up to Vancouver
We've learned this AM via a Canucks.com press release that the Vancouver Canucks announced today that they recalled defenceman Frank Corrado from their AHL farm team the Chicago Wolves.
The top defensive prospect left on the club's farm team is moving up to the big leagues. With Kevin Connauton now with the Stars Corrado is the future on the blue line for Vancouver. From the fifth round to the NHL in less than two years is impressive.
The Mike Gillis press release goes on to say "Corrado, 20, recorded two assists in three games with the Wolves this season. Prior to joining the Wolves, the Toronto, ON, native compiled 45 points (7-38-45) in 69 OHL games in 2012.13 with the Sudbury Wolves and Kitchener Rangers. His 27 points (6-21-27) in 41 games with Sudbury led all Wolves defencemen in scoring at seasons end. He finished third on the Rangers among defenceman with 18 points (1-17-18) in 28 games played.
In his professional hockey debut with the Chicago Wolves in 2011.12, he collected an assist in four regular season games and dressed in two Wolves playoff games.
The 62, 190-pound defenceman was originally selected by Vancouver 150th overall in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
