      Canucks' Hunter Shinkaruk: Sent back down to AHL

      Shinkaruk was sent back down to AHL Utica on Wednesday, Brad Ziemer of the Vancouver Sun reports. Shinkaruk had a one game stint in the NHL before being sent back down to the AHL. The first round pick in 2013 didn't score a point in his NHL debut, but does have 13 points in 12 games for the Comets. He's replaced by Alex Grenier in the NHL, who should provide more size to the Canucks' forward groups.

      Canucks' Hunter Shinkaruk: Posts season hat trick of young season Saturday

      Shinkaruk had his second hat trick of the young season in AHL Utica's 5-1 over Providence on Saturday. On the strength of his two big nights, Shinkaruk now has nine goals in his first 11 games this season. He scored 16 goals in 74 games all of last year.

Those numbers are going to have to improve substantially for Shinkaruk to become an effective player at the NHL level. He's a poor skater and offers virtually nothing on the defensive end, so if he isn't putting up big offensive numbers, he isn't helping his team much. He's expected to spend the entire season at the AHL level.
