Prust will shut it down and begin rehabbing for next season due to a lingering ankle injury, Ben Birnell of the Utica Observer-Dispatch reports. Prust was reassigned to AHL Utica in early February, but was thought to be a potential recall for some playoff depth if needed. The 31-year-old tallied one goals and six assists in nine games for the Comets which matched his production with the Canucks this season, albeit in 35 contests. In terms of fantasy value, the winger is definitely low-end as he has broken the 20-point mark only once in his NHL career.
Prust cleared waivers Wednesday and has been sent to AHL Utica, Ben Kuzma of the Vancouver Province reports. Prust was placed on waivers Tuesday, but went unclaimed and will now join the team's AHL affiliate. The winger will serve as organizational depth, but could be recalled later in the season if the Canucks are in need of another forward.
Prust was placed on waivers Tuesday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reports. Prust's first season in Vancouver has largely been a disappointment, as the winger has just one goal and six assists through 35 contests. It's possible he sticks around with the Canucks, but it's unlikely the 31-year-old will take on a much larger role than he currently occupies.
As expected, Prust (leg) will return to action Wednesday against the Hurricanes. Prust was held out of Monday's game against the Coyotes with a leg injury, but returned to practice Tuesday, which was the first indication he would likely be available for Wednesday's matchup with Carolina. The 31-year-old winger will skate alongside Jared McCann and Derek Dorsett on the Canucks' third line in Wednesday's tilt.
Prust (leg) is expected to play Wednesday against the Hurricanes. Prust missed Monday's matchup with the Coyotes with a leg injury, but has been practicing of late, and will likely suit up for Wednesday's tilt against Carolina. If the 31-year-old winger is able to go Wednesday, he'll return to a bottom-six role.
