Other notes

  • Will Lockwood made another strong case for making the opening night roster. He was battling hard, got himself three hits (which led all Canucks) and even drew a penalty on McDavid.
  • Alex Chiasson hasn’t had a good preseason. However, he had his best preseason game so far. He wasn’t spectacular but he looked fine playing with Pettersson and Conor Garland.
  • Hopefully Zack Kassian is alright after hitting his head on the ice during a fight with MacEwen. That looked very scary. Good thing he managed to get up and walk to the dressing room. Not sure what the point of the fight was. It’s preseason after all.
