Vancouver Canucks Re-Assign Frank Corrado to Chicago Wolves


The Vancouver Canucks have re-assigned prospect Frank Corrado to the Chicago Wolves after the defenceman’s junior season and career came to an end on Friday.

Corrado’s team, the Kitchener Rangers were eliminated by the first place London Knights in the second round in five games.

He began the season with the Sudbury Wolves, his team the previous three seasons, but Corrado was acquired by the Rangers on January 8 in an attempt to boost their Memorial Cup chances. Corrado also attended Canucks training camp after the National Hockey League lockout came to an end and was a late cut for the Team Canada at the 2013 World Junior Hockey Championships.

There is no word if his teammate and fellow Canucks prospect, defenceman Evan McEneny will join the Wolves on an amateur tryout, but it doesn’t appear to be likely. The Wolves currently have ten defencemen on the roster including Corrado.
