It was a crazy week for the Vancouver Canucks AHL affiliates, the Utica Comets.
The Vancouver Canucks have struggled to rise clear above the .500 win percentage this season. Their American Hockey League affiliates, the Utica Comets are facing a similar plight, as they are now 6-8-1 on the year.
They did, however, tie the franchise record for the most goals in a single game when they handed the Belleville Senators a 7-1 loss on Friday. Jordan Subban led the way with three assists from the blueline. Reid Boucher had two goals on nine shots, helping netminder Thatcher Demko work 26 saves on 27 shots.
The game against the Halford Wolf Pack was a totally different storyline as Demko let in four goals on 29 shots. Goldobin did manage to pick up an assist on the Carter Bancks goal, but otherwise, it was a very quiet night for the prospects.
Philip Holm is leading the blueline with ten points in 15 games. Rookie Zack MacEwen is slowly putting up decent numbers, as the physical centreman now has five goals in ten games. Of note, Jordan Subban, Cole Cassels and Jalen Chatfield are all goalless to begin the year.
Away from the AHL, however, there were many things to be excited about. Here are three of the top prospect performers from Week 6 of the Vancouver Canucks season.
