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. 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

The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans

Excuse me while I wax poetic here. In November of 2018, I had a scheduling change at work that would completely alter the next few years of my life. I was home by 3:30 PM every single day and needed something to fill the void before my wife got home from work. Enter the Utica … Continue reading The Last Comets Harvest: The one versus the Rochester Americans

COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica

https://twitter.com/UticaComets/status/1392541202281648129?s=20 I have seen things you wouldn't believe. Five attackers setting up to fire below the circles. I've watched a journeyman AHL tweener turn into a Sedin twin at the twilight of his Canucks career. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time ...to move. Tonight is the last home … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST: A Final Goodbye to the City of Utica

Following their gruelling shutout victory over the Binghamton Devils, the Utica Comets look for their second straight win tonight against the Rochester Americans! The 'Merks and the 'Mets...wait, that doesn't sound right.

COMETS HARVEST 3.1: The Utica Blues v. the Rochester Amerks

Bring It All Back Now 331 days ago, the Comets concluded their 2019-20 campaign with one of their worst performances. After scoring the game's opening goal, a powerplay tally from Justin Bailey, the Comets gave up three straight, all in a very "2021 Canucks"-like manner. First, poor defensive coverage from Mitch Eliot and John Stevens … Continue reading COMETS HARVEST 3.1: The Utica Blues v. the Rochester Amerks
