Friday March 14: Washington Capitals 4 - Vancouver Canucks 3
The Vancouver Canucks showed an unexpected dose of heart at the Verizon Center on Friday, but it wasn't enough to snag a win over the struggling Washington Capitals. Here are your highlights:
For the second time this week, the Canucks scored three goals but didn't walk away with a point.
Diminutive Vancouver Canuck centre Jordan Schroeder has sufficiently recovered from ankle surgery and will play this weekend, only it will be for the Canucks' Utica Comets farm team.
The Comets' next two American League games just happen to be Friday and Saturday in Abbotsford against the Heat so Schroeder won't have far to travel. Officially, he will be on a conditioning...
Vancouver Canucks head coach John Tortorella was in a bartering mood Monday.
Here was his proposed deal: if reporters refrained from inquiring daily about injuries, he would provide a nice little list for us on what was happening in the team's infirmary.
So how could we resist? We couldn't.
The worst news was on centre Jordan Schroeder, who refractured his left ankle Oct...
The Vancouver Canucks center Jordan Schroeder was sent back to Vancouver while the team is on a seven game road trip so he can get his injured left foot examined.
The injury to Schroeder was suffered this past Saturday against the Pittsburgh Penguins, a shootout loss. Against the Edmonton Oilers in a pre-season game, he fractured the same foot while blocking a shot. He missed...
Former first round pick could be odd man out
There’s really only one spot for Jordan Schroeder on the 2013-14 Vancouver Canucks roster, and there’s a strong chance it won’t be the right fit.
With Henrik Sedin and Ryan Kesler taking up the top two centre positions, the logical place to slot Schroeder in is as a third line centre, but even that seems a little up in the air.
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...
Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Michael D. Gillis announced today that the Canucks have re-signed centre Jordan Schroeder.
Schroeder 22 split the 2012.13 season with the Canucks and AHL Chicago Wolves. In his NHL debut season he posted nine points (3-6-9) and four penalty minutes in 31 games played. He finished fourth on the Wolves in goal scoring with 12 goals and...
Down The Middle
Another year, another question mark for the Vancouver Canucks at third line centre.
The patchwork system of Jordan Schroeder, Derek Roy and even Mason Raymond at times is now down to Schroeder, newly signed Brad Richardson and a handful of promising prospects.
It wouldn’t be a problem if a fourth line centre spot was all that was up for grabs, but the Canucks knew...
A look at the rook
Just thought I would check in and take a quick look at Canucks rookie Jordan Schroeder. Schroeder was called up to the Canucks almost as fast as he was sent down.
After two disappointing games with Andrew Ebbett as the second line center, master juggler and lozenge enthusiast, Alain Vigneault did a little line juggling.
Included in that juggling was the call up...

Now that Canucks camp is underway, we can finally talk about hockey matters again.
Namely, that Ryan Kesler is still injured and can’t move his arm above his surgically reconstructed shoulder.
His absence leaves a giant void in the middle of the second line that the Canucks will scramble to find an answer for during this shortened training camp.
Maxim Lapierre is...
