The Canucks recalled Adam Gaudette from Utica (AHL).
With Brandon Sutter out with a lower-body injury, Gaudette earns another call-up in 2018-19. The 22-year-old has scored three goals with four assists (seven points) in 32 games with the Canucks this season. During his time in the AHL, Gaudette has 11 points (5G / 6A) in 14 games.
Gaudette (illness) will come out the Canucks lineup on Sunday.
Gaudette is expected to be back in the Canucks lineup on Monday.
Gaudette was a healthy scratch on Saturday, but was on the second power-play unit in Sunday’s practice. That kind of participation suggests that Gaudette will be back in the lineup vs. the Wild. Gaudette will likely play in the bottom-6 now that Elias Pettersson is back in and re-enters the lineup with just one assist in six games.
The Canucks have recalled Adam Gaudette from Utica (AHL).
Gaudette played five games with the Canucks last season after turning pro following his Junior year at Northeastern University. The 2015 fifth round pick led Northeastern with 60 points (30G / 30A) in 38 games and has had a nice start to his AHL career, amassing four points (2G / 2A) in four games. The 22-year-old will likely make his season debut in Pittsburgh on Tuesday with Vancouver losing two centres (Elias Pettersson and Jay Beagle) in Florida on Saturday.
Gaudette will make his NHL debut on Thursday.
