Canucks' Markus Granlund: Finds twine Saturday

Granlund scored once and recorded a plus-2 rating Saturday against the Kings.

Granlund is looking for a role on the fourth line of the Canucks, a slight demotion due to the arrival of Thomas Vanek. Either way, Granlund's powerful shot earns him considerable power-play minutes which can't be overlooked. Still, his defensive game needs work, as he finished last season with a horrid minus-19 rating. His positive rating from Saturday was a good sign, especially since he logged over three minutes on the penalty kill.
