The Abbotsford Canucks 2021-22 Prospect Rhombus

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 Comets look to rebound from a devastating 7-1 loss to the Syracuse Crunch when they face off against the *checks notes* Syracuse Crunch.

COMETS HARVEST: First Blood Part 2

A quick turnaround for the Utica Comets as they return to action for the first time in a month with a back-to-back. I'm not sure what the impetus was to jamming the Comets schedule with games?
