From the Vancouver Sun:
The NHL’s Vancouver Canucks, down another defenceman with a knee injury to veteran Mattias Ohlund, have called up blueliner Luc Bourdon from the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League.
Ohlund was hurt during Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to the host Colorado Avalanche. He went for an MRI on the knee today, and results may be available tomorrow.
Aside from that fine news, I thought I’d throw in a screenshot of a Canucks contest being run lately.
Wanna win a prize? Tell the Canucks how many goals the team will score in the first period of any game.
Geezus, is there any smart answer to this besides “ZERO”?
I’ve got a better promotion idea. Tell the Canucks how much longer it will be before Vigneault completely cracks up and tries out this new line combination:
I’m expecting it to happen anytime, myself.
Update 6:45pm PT: Speaking of Alain Vigneault, he added his own wisdom to the Canucks dialogue today with a smartassed little quip:
“I hear jumping off the bandwagon might become an Olympic sport.”
Wow. Two years later, he finally noticed he works out of Vancouver.
In other news, Brendan Morrison practiced with teammates today, and we can reasonably expect him back by next week at latest.
