Canucks Place Michel Ouellet on Re-Entry Waivers

With Jannik Hansen out with a groin injury the Canucks are attempting to re-call Michel Ouellet from Manitoba. Ouellet has 4 goals and 6 assists in 10 games for the Moose.

It's funny, during last nights game I was thinking that if the Canucks had any intention of getting Ouellet up this season they may as well do it now. Jason Krog, who took Hansen's place on the Kesler line, was pretty much invisible for most of the night with the exception of a couple 3rd period shifts. I don't think Ouellet is going to play on that line, (it's more likely that he will get some time with the Sedins) but I think it was obvious that there was something lacking in the forward group that was dressed. Maybe Ouellet can be the missing piece.

Of course there's still a big question mark surrounding whether or not anyone will claim Ouellet. At half his $1.2m salary, the former 19 goal scorer could be enticing to some teams.
