Gaunce was sent down to the minors Tuesday. Gaunce returns to the AHL where he has notched 15 goals and 18 helpers in 43 contests.

Fans and fantasy owners alike will want to keep on eye on the 22-year-old's continued development during the Calder Cup playoffs.
Gaunce was recalled from AHL Utica on Tuesday. Gaunce had just been sent back down the day before, but Vancouver suffered a rash of injuries in Monday's tilt so he'll make his way back up. He's made little impact in six games at the NHL level this season, but he's posted an impressive 33 points through 43 games in the AHL.
Gaunce was reassigned to AHL Utica on Monday. Gaunce added very little in terms of fantasy value during his four-game recall, as he averaged a mere 10:41 of ice time and recorded eight hits and three blocked shots. The young center has performed significantly better in the minors this season where he has logged 33 points in 43 contests. The Canucks replaced Gaunce on the depth chart with Alexandre Grenier.

Gaunce has been tearing it up with AHL Utica this season, as he leads all skaters in points (33) and goals (15) while also notching 18 assists in 43 games. The 21-year-old center has likely been called up to provide the Canucks an extra forward while Radim Vrbata recovers from an undisclosed injury. He could push for playing time on the Canucks' fourth forward line.
Gaunce was assigned to AHL Utica on Thursday.

The 21-year-old will head to AHL Utica to continue his 2015-16 campaign, but will likely get another opportunity with the Canucks later this season.
