It seems as if Yannick Weber has convinced the technical staff of the Vancouver Canucks with his performances for their AHL-farmteam, the Utica Comets. Only three weeks ago, Weber was sent down to the AHL.
For the Utica Comets, Weber scored in 7 appearances 7 points (2 goals, 5 assists) and was a major asset for them in powerplay. And the Canucks with their struggling powerplay could definitely use a right-shooting blue-liner with a hard slapshot.
