The Canucks reassigned Grenier to AHL Utica on Tuesday.

Grenier's demotion indicates Sven Baertschi (foot) is likely nearing a return to the Canucks' lineup. The 25-year-old winger has tallied 14 points (six goals, eight assists) in 16 games with AHL Utica this season, and he'll likely be one of the first players Vancouver turns to when dealing with injuries up front.
