Before the Canucks 2021-22 NHL and AHL campaigns kick-off, the AHLNucksHarvest wanted to pick Cull's brain on player development, his final year in Utica, and Abbotsford. … Continue reading Abbotsford Canucks head coach Trent Cull on prospects, development, Abbotsford, and a challenging final year in Utica

The Abbotsford Canucks 2021-22 Prospect Rhombus

For years, hockey writers worldwide have relied on the unimpressive pyramid to illustrate their team's prospect pool quality. Now, placing prospects into tiers on a pyramid does make sense.

COMETS HARVEST: RETURN OF THE (SHORT) KING

Arise, arise, Riders of Utica! Sticks shall be shaken, shinguards shall be splintered, a stick-day, a red day, ere the sun rises! Skate now, skate now, skate! Skate for ruin and the season's ending!
