Via Twitter this AM we've learned Vancouver Canucks GM Mike Gillis has announced that Van City have recalled Niklas Jensen and Billy Sweatt.
Zack Kassian and Andrew Gordon have been re-assigned to the Chicago Wolves
Vancouver Canucks forward Zack Kassian is listed as 6’3″ 205, while Dallas Stars rookie forward Antoine Roussel is listed as 5’11″ 170.

“We Are All Canucks”
