DAN HAMHUIS INJURED
By Nolan Kelly
The Canucks have the day off today, so there won’t be any further update on the condition of defenseman Dan Hamhuis, who was knocked out cold after he took an elbow to the head from Anaheim forward Ryan Getzlaf.
Early indications were positive.
"Dan has got the glass plastered to his face right now," Vigneault said. "He has got a big red mark, but he seemed fine."
The Canucks have two days off before hosting the Calgary Flames on Saturday night. It’s unknown whether Hamhuis will play.
CANUCKS RECALL ORESKOVICH
Vancouver Canucks President and General Manager Mike Gillis announced today that right wing Victor Oreskovich has been recalled from the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. Aaron Volpatti has been re-assigned to Manitoba.
Oreskovich, 24, has appeared in 31 games for the Moose this season, recording 11 points (4-7-11) and 27 penalty minutes. The Whitby, Ontario native has played in 50 career NHL games, collecting six points (2-4-6) and 26 penalty minutes.
Oreskovich was acquired along with Keith Ballard from the Florida Panthers on draft day for Steve Bernier, Michael Grabner and a 1st round pick.
Volpatti, 25, has split the season between the Moose and Canucks. He has registered six points (0-6-6) in 26 games in Manitoba and two points (1-1-2) in 15 games with Vancouver, including his first NHL goal.
CAN’T WIN 'EM ALL
It’s been two months since the Rogers Arena faithful had to endure a regulation loss at home.
In that time span the Canucks have gone 11-0-4, collecting 26 of a possible 30 points. It’s second the longest stretch of consecutive games in franchise history the team has collected at least one point at home. The franchise record of 18 straight games was set during the 1992-93 season.
