Juho Lammikko

GP: 20 G: 0 A:1 P: 1 5v5 CF: 39.80%

Juho Lammikko was acquired from the Florida Panthers in the Olli Juolevi trade along with defenceman Noah Juulsen who is currently in Abbotsford.

He hasn’t done a lot to impress His 39.80% CF is dead last among Canucks who have played at least 100 minutes. He is also last or close to last in almost every analytical stat. Lammikko has been poor at five on five and on the penalty kill. He doesn’t do a lot in the defensive zone and does pretty much nothing in the offensive zone.

Lammikko does a lot of nothing.

He’s now part of the Sea of Granlunds

Alex Chiasson

GP:18 G:2 A:3 P:5 5v5CF: 49.57%

Alex Chiasson was signed to a PTO and was eventually signed to a one-year deal worth $700,000. He was signed to boost the power play because he provided a net-front presence.

His net-front presence hasn’t been effective and he doesn’t do much at five-on-five. (He has one even-strength point.)

Just like Lammikko, he does a whole lot of nothing and is the newest member of the Sea of Granlunds.

Justin Dowling

GP:21 G:2 A:1 P:3 5v5CF: 43.37%

Justin Dowling wasn’t expected to make the team but he did.

The former Dallas Star is a bottom-six player but he has got some ice time with Elias Pettersson and has even got some penalty killing time which he has looked OK at.

His analytics aren’t very good and he hasn’t been noticeable at even strength.

Kyle Burroughs

GP:19 G:1 A:0 P:1 5v5CF: 49.66%

The Langley native was signed by the Canucks in the summer and he impressed at training camp and at preseason.

Kyle Burroughs got his first NHL goal against the Winnipeg Jets at Rogers Arena and that must have felt good for him.

Burroughs looked fine defensively early on as he was making simple but effective defensive plays. Recently, he has been getting beat on the rush easily and has made some mistakes in his own end.

Brad Hunt

GP: 4 G:0 A: 1 P:1 5v5CF: 41.57%

Another local man, (from Maple Ridge) Brad Hunt had a strong preseason but hasn’t had a good season so far.

Hunt has been played on the left side and right side and has looked very poor in his own end. No wonder why Travis Green has only played him in four games.
