Hewitt was sent back to the University of British Columbia on Wednesday.

Hewitt was called up under emergency conditions, but will return to his college team as Ryan Miller (undisclosed) is healthy enough to return to the lineup. Hewitt is 0-3-0 so far this season with a .894 save percentage, so Canucks fans are breathing a sigh of relief he was not required to man the crease. The 23-year-old will no doubt use this experience to attempt to secure an entry-level deal following the conclusion of his collegiate career.
