You really have to give Dan Hamhuis of the Vancouver Canucks credit for this brawl last night with Jakub Voracek. It would’ve been acceptable for Dan to go down once the blood started blasting into his visor after a wicked shot to the left side of his face. But that’s not how Dan rolls. A bloody visor isn’t going to stop Dan from landing a couple of nice bombs on the side...
Zack Kassian's third-period goal lifted the Vancouver Canucks to a 2-1 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night.
Bo Horvat had the other goal for Vancouver, and Eddie Lack stopped 29 shots as the Canucks beat the Ducks in regulation for the first time in more than two years.
Emerson Etem had the lone goal for the Ducks, who have dropped two straight after winning four in a row...

Not everyone in the Pacific Division will be jolly or cheerful this holiday season after what has been a difficult first third of the season for some teams. Before the NHL’s Christmas trade freeze went into effect midnight on Friday December 19, there was rumored to be a frenzied amount of activity across the league with the Canucks and Oilers involved...

As we approach another of the wildly popular bobblehead nights (ahem, told you Sean), the Predators decided to have a little fun with this one.

As the Canucks prepare to face the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday at Rogers Arena, let's get the bad news out of the way first: Dan Hamhuis is out for several months, according to media reports. #467848641 / gettyimages.com "Told #Canucks Dan Hamhuis' injury is significant. Not a short term thing (months not weeks). Had MRI yesterday. Seeing doctors again today." ...
The Nashville Predators are officially a team to be reckoned with. The traditional CMA road trip has finished for this season and the Preds went a very respectable 4-2 for a total of eight points. Four games this week each featuring some positives and negatives.
The week started off with a 3-1 win in Vancouver. No small feat considering the Canucks had won five of their last six games...
Optimistic Thoughts: That first line is lethal. Forsberg notches two in this game and continues his stellar season. The power play looks to may have started to gain some traction by tallying again tonight. Victor Bartley didn’t look out of place after making his season debut due to Volchenkov’s four game suspension, and that will be much needed through the rest of the road trip...

With every new NHL season there comes a modern day Mighty Ducks story line – you know, that lovable team that shocks the world and takes on all comers.
Last season that team was the Colorado Avalanche, but who will it be this season?
Here are my top three Cinderella teams of 2014/15
Vancouver Canucks coach John Tortorella certainly won’t win any fans in Canada with his decision to cheer for Team Sweden in Sunday’s gold medal game at the 2014 Winter Olympics.
With goaltender Roberto Luongo and defenseman Dan Hamhuis representing Canada and forwards Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin and defenseman Alex Edler on Team Sweden, Tortorella could have pleaded the fifth...
As the Canucks center’s continue to drop like flies, management has been grasping at straws for an immediate response to this recent run of injuries down the middle. And according to Sportsnet, they may have found their answer in 38-year old forward, Vinny Prospal.
#Canucks GM Mike Gillis says Vinny Prospal will likely play this weekend for the #Comets

For the majority of our readers, the last few weeks have been spent wondering whether Dan Hamhuis would make Team Canada or whether Roberto Luongo would start; Scott Yzerman‘s delivered on one and time will reveal with the second.
But looking beyond these two goal-preventing studs, the Vancouver Canucks have no shortage of players that have worked their ways on their respective...
To coincide with the NHL‘s game-du-jour, the American’s named their men’s Olympic hockey roster on Wednesday. There were a few surprises here and there (most notably the insane decision to leave Bobby Ryan off the team) and the occasional reminder that NHL general managers are never short of surprises.
I mean, who would’ve guessed people paid millions to evaluate...
It may be more difficult to notice when stay-at-home defenceman have a breakout campaign, but based on what I’m seeing and the numbers are saying, Chris Tanev is in the midst of one.
And at the rate John Tortorella is increasing his role and responsibility, he could very well be on the path to shedding his role as a stay-at-home guy.
I mean, I can’t be the only...
