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

Welcome, Canucks Nation, to the hungover edition of the Comets Harvest. pre-emptive sorry for the sentence fragments.

11/8/19 – Utica Comets vs. WBS Penguins

I'm going to preface this pre-amble with, "I don't actually want this to happen."   But how funny would it be if the Utica Comets dropped four straight losses after winning their first eight to start the year?   After getting off to the best start in franchise history, the Comets have seen their lead over the … Continue reading 11/8/19 – Utica Comets vs. WBS Penguins
