The AHL: The Utica Comets
The Utica Comets were able to get their five-game losing streak snapped with a massive win over the Binghamton Senators 5-1. The Comets are back in action tonight (Tuesday) against the Rochester Americans.
Now with forward Alex Grenier back with the Comets, perhaps a late playoff push is in the workings with just 10 games remaining in the season for Utica. The way things are shaping up, the Comets look to be headed to a first-round matchup against rivals Albany Devils.
Another ECHL note here — prospect Curtis Valk had his first professional goal this weekend. He is quite undersized though, at 5-feet-9. Maybe the Calgary Flames are listening?
Perhaps overlooked is the contribution of Carter Bancks. The forward, not signed to an NHL contract by the Vancouver Canucks yet, has 33 points in 66 games for the Comets this season. Do the Canucks have room for the 26-year-old winger?
And that is it for this third installment of the Canucks prospects playoffs watch. I will update the stats for the Titans game as soon as it is available.
