MacEwen earned an assist in his first career NHL game, a 7-2 loss to the Sharks on Monday. The team didn't perform well, but MacEwen has his first milestone at the highest level, setting up defenseman Derrick Pouliot's third-period goal. He skated 9:45 and fired two shots on goal. With Sven Baertschi (concussion) out, MacEwen will be given a chance to make his mark as the Canucks battle for a wild card in the chaotic Western Conference playoff race.
MacEwen was called up from AHL Utica on Sunday. The undrafted forward has been tremendous at the AHL level this season, scoring 17 goals and 42 points in 49 games. MacEwen looks physically ready to make an NHL impact, standing at 6-foot-4 and 212 pounds. He might get his shot as Sven Baertschi (concussion) recently landed on injured reserve.
