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.
Prust (leg) will not play in Monday night's game against Arizona. Despite the fact that he took part in Monday's optional skate, Prust did not participate in warm-ups and is not listed in the starting forward lines and thus can be expected to miss the tilt with the Coyotes. The 31-year-old veteran winger's next chance to return to the ice will come Wednesday when Vancouver hosts Carolina.
