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. It's simple, favourable, efficient, and avoids the need for laborious contextualization! That said, the AHL Nucks Harvest is proud to introduce its first, and hopefully annual convoluted … Continue reading The Abbotsford Canucks 2021-22 Prospect Rhombus

2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

It feels genuinely surreal to be writing about hockey again.  The last time I wrote about hockey here, the Comets were returning home off of a three-game road hit, hoping to extend their current win streak to four.  Despite getting an early lead, the Comets defensive structure collapsed. Michael Di Pietro did all he could … Continue reading 2021 Canucks Training Camp Primer: A Deep-Dive into the Players of the 2019-20 Utica Comets

3/4/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

The Utica Comets are inside the final 20 games of the season, and holy guacamole, do they have a month in store for them! Two 3-in-4's to start the month, then a Tuesday game that immediately follows a double-header weekend. Afterwards, it's a triple header, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, mid-month, concluding with two more 3-in-4's at … Continue reading 3/4/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

In a battle between mediocre North Division teams playing roller-coaster hockey in 2020, the Utica Comets face off with the Toronto Marlies in another inter-divisional matchup. I say roller-coaster because both teams have had brief moments of domination. Toronto's 7-6 comeback win against Belleville or Utica's 6-3 win over Hartford being the primary example of … Continue reading 2/28/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Toronto Marlies

2/26/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

This time last year, the Vancouver Canucks made a blockbuster trade, 1-for-1, Erik Gudbranson for Tanner Pearson. This trade-deadline, the Canucks dealt Zane McIntyre for Louis Domingue, while calling up Jake Kielly from the Kalamazoo Wings. McIntyre had a great start to the season as a backup, winning 6 of his first ten starts. Unfortunately, … Continue reading 2/26/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Rochester Americans

2/14/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

Good evening Canucks Nation, it's time for another edition of the Comets Harvest! I missed out on last Wednesday's game against the Laval Rocket as my sister took out a small personal loan leveraged against everything she owns, and purchased lower bowl seats to the Sedins jersey retirement game for us to go and see … Continue reading 2/14/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Syracuse Crunch

2/5/20 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

The Utica Comets are in Laval, Quebec tonight following a disappointing start to their February, with that 3-2 loss to the Cleveland Monsters on the road. The Comets start in 2020 has been a weird one. After a five-game win streak vaulted them to the top spot in the North Division, the Comets floundered with … Continue reading 2/5/20 – Utica Comets vs. Laval Rocket

2/1/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Cleveland Monsters

Well, I ended up passing out pretty early and accomplished none of the tracking catch-up I'd hoped too, FML. Fortunately, I'm well-rested and ready for this morning's Comets/Monsters rematch! Not much has changed in the 16 hours since these two teams last met, and it looks like the starting lineup has no changes to it, so let's … Continue reading 2/1/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Cleveland Monsters

1/31/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Cleveland Monsters

IT ME! I cannot believe how long it's been since I last recapped a Comets game! After a decent trip to Maui with family, in which I got the flu, crashed my rental car, and then no got sun for the final six days of the trip -- I then had to go cross-country to … Continue reading 1/31/2020 – Utica Comets vs. Cleveland Monsters

12/28/19 – Utica Comets vs. Lehigh Valley Phantoms

What's up Canucks Nation, time for a quick turnaround as the Comets hit the road to take on the Atlantic Divisions, last-place, Lehigh Valley Phantoms. The Phantoms are coming off back-to-back 4-2 losses to division rivals, the Charlotte Checkers, and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. The Phantoms play incredibly dull hockey, having racked up the league's lowest goals-for … Continue reading 12/28/19 – Utica Comets vs. Lehigh Valley Phantoms
