First Round of Cuts

The Vancouver Canucks have reduced their roster by 4 players.

  • Juraj Simek (RW) has been assigned to the Manitoba Moose
  • Yann Sauve (D) has been sent back to his junior club
  • Taylor Ellington (D) has also been sent to his junior club
  • Karl Goehring (G) has been released, but will be attendting Moose camp

None of these players had a chance to make the Canucks, but it is pretty disappointing to see that former 2nd round pick Taylor Ellington has been sent to junior so soon (I believe he is eligible to play in the ECHL). Hopefully he has a big season as an over-age in the WHL.
