Bruins' Brendan Gaunce: Ushered to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bruins reassigned Gaunce to AHL Providence on Monday, freelance hockey writer Mark Divver reports.

Gaunce suited up in one game during this NHL stint, logging 9:10 of ice time and dishing out an assist. Despite the solid performance, it appears Patrice Bergeron (lower body) could return soon, so Gaunce will continue to develop in the minors

Bruins' Brendan Gaunce: Climbs to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bruins recalled Gaunce from AHL Providence on Monday.

Gaunce has been impressive with Providence this year, posting 11 points and a plus-8 rating over 14 contests. The 25-year-old hasn't lived up to being picked in the first round of the 2012 NHL Draft, as he's registered just 15 points over 117 games at the top level. It's unsettled whether Gaunce will enter the lineup Tuesday against the Canadiens.

Bruins' Brendan Gaunce: Heads back to bus league
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bruins assigned Gaunce to AHL Providence on Tuesday.

Gaunce was brought up in case either Patrice Bergeron (lower body) or Jake DeBrusk (lower body) was unable to go, and his shipment back to the AHL signals one or both should be ready for Tuesday's contest. The 25-year-old's Bruins debut will be put on hold as he looks to build on seven points in 11 minor-league games this year.

Bruins' Brendan Gaunce: Receives promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bruins recalled Gaunce from AHL Providence on Monday.

This is Gaunce's first call up of the season, as he's played 11 games in the minors and recorded seven points. The 25-year-old has experience at the top level with the Canucks, as he suited up in 117 games over four seasons and posted six goals and nine assists. With the B's assortment of injuries, Gaunce provides depth for Tuesday's road matchup against the Devils.

Bruins' Brendan Gaunce: Signs two-way deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bruins have signed Gaunce to a one-year, two-way deal with an NHL cap hit of $700,000.

The 25-year-old hasn't produced much offense at the NHL level (six goals and 15 points in 117 games to date), but the 2012 first-rounder gives the Bruins some added size (he's 6-foot-2 and 217 pounds) to their depth forward corps and will be a candidate for bottom-six duty with the team in 2019-20.

Brendan Gaunce: Dropped by Vancouver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canucks didn't extend Gaunce a qualifying offer Tuesday.

Gaunce will thus become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The 25-year-old pivot was a solid producer for AHL Utica this campaign, tallying 38 points in 60 contests, so it shouldn't take long for him to find a new landing spot this offseason.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Reassigned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce was sent back to AHL Utica by the Canucks on Thursday.

Gaunce only appeared in three games for Vancouver, but made the most of his time there. He tallied two assists and a game-winning goal, but it wasn't enough to keep him in the lineup. His most recent game was November 17 against Montreal, where his ice time was a meager 4:58. Prior to that, he hadn't played since November 2 versus Colorado. He's spent most of his time in the press box, but now he'll go to Utica to get some meaningful playing time.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Scores game-winner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce scored the game-winning goal and added a helper in Wednesday's win over the Blackhawks.

This was Gaunce's first game of the season after being cut in training camp. He certainly made the most of his opportunity, picking off a pass from Jonathan Toews and ripping it past a surprised Corey Crawford. Gaunce loves playing Chicago, as half of his six career goals have been scored against the Blackhawks. If he can play the same way against other teams, there's a chance he can get back to being a regular with the big club.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Added from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce was recalled from AHL Utica on Saturday, Patrick Johnston of the Vancouver Province reports.

Gaunce was sent to AHL Utica late in September after failing to secure a spot on the team's Opening Night roster. However, some early season injuries have afforded the 2012 first-round selection with an opportunity to rejoin the NHL club. Gaunce could have a chance to draw into the lineup Wednesday against the Blackhawks, but there's nothing to suggest he's worth fantasy consideration given his minimal production in past NHL stints.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce was designated for assignment by the Canucks on Thursday.

This means that Gaunce was dropped from the Canucks' training-camp roster and subsequently waived. He produced a mere six points (four goals, two assists) over 37 games for the Canucks last season.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Secures six points in 37 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce lit the lamp four times and pitched in two assists in 37 games during 2017-18, firing 55 shots on goal.

Injuries limited Gaunce severely in 2017-18 which is unfortunate for his development, but he was still able to set a new career high in points with his six tallies. For the second straight season Gaunce spent the clear majority of his time out of AHL Utica and with the big club, and he seemingly emerged as a defensive forward this year -- he started 85 percent of his shifts in the defensive zone, and had an even rating despite Vancouver ranking near the bottom of the NHL standings. Gaunce is set to return north of the border for the 2018-19 season, and a role on the bottom six forward group seems most probable.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Records one shot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) put one shot on net against the Oilers on Thursday.

Gaunce -- who was returning from a 24-game absence -- logged just 9:02 of ice time. The Canucks will likely ease the winger back into action, but he should start playing more minutes and be closer to his 13:29 season average moving forward. In his 35 contests this year, the center has recorded four goals (a career high) and one helper; not exactly the stat line of a prolific scorer.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Suiting up Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) will play in Thursday's contest against Edmonton, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 Vancouver reports.

Gaunce hasn't played for the Canucks since Feb. 6 against the Panthers, missing the last 24 games. On the season, the 24-year-old has just four goals and five points in 34 games played. His return shouldn't have much fantasy impact.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Could play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) could return to the lineup for Thursday's game against the Oilers, Farhan Lalji of TSN reports.

Gaunce's activation off of injured reserve Wednesday may have served as an indicator that he's close to returning. It sounds as though official word on his status won't come until pregame warmups, so interested parties should check back around that time.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Not listed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) is no longer listed on injured reserve, per the NHL media site.

Gaunce hasn't dressed for the Canucks since Feb. 6 against the Panthers, but he's yet to rule out a return to the ice before the season closes out. Perhaps his removal from injured reserve suggests the winger is nearing that return, but the team should release more info on his status once he's ready to go.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Not playing Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) won't suit up against the Ducks on Tuesday.

Canucks coach Travis Green has left the door open for Gaunce to potentially return by the end of the season, but time is running out. Only five games will remain on the regular-season docket after Tuesday's date with the Ducks, and we already know this team won't be in the playoffs. Of course, we'd be surprised if Gaunce has been on any fantasy rosters in the first place. Despite the Canucks reaching for him with a first-round (26th overall) pick in the 2012 draft, Gaunce has only added 11 points through 111 career contests.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Still hoping to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) "may play in the last few games of the season," according to coach Travis Green.

Gaunce -- who has been sidelined since Feb. 6 -- likely is looking at playing in April, if he manages to work his way back. The center has been limited to a mere 34 outings this season due to injury, but still managed to set a career high in goals (four) and tie his best points total (five). The 23-year-old has put up solid offensive numbers in the OHL and AHL; however, he has yet to find his scoring touch in the NHL.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Expected to skate soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canucks coach Travis Green indicated Tuesday that Gaunce (foot) is expected to begin skating "soon".

Gaunce still has many steps left in his recovery before he can rejoin the lineup, but he appears to be nearing the first stop on that road by retaking the ice. The 23-year-old winger should solidify the Canucks bottom six when healthy, though his physical nature (45 hits ) only plays in some fantasy formats. Gaunce owns just five points (four goals, one assist) through 34 games this season.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Headed to injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gaunce (foot) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, per the NHL's official media site.

The move is retroactive to Tuesday, and won't affect his timetable for a return around the end of February. The 23-year-old hasn't been able to carve out an everyday role in British Columbia during his third NHL season, as he's posted just five points (four goals, one assist) in 34 games while averaging 13:36 of ice time. Nic Dowd will likely continue to see increased playing time the remainder of Gaunce's time in the press box.

Canucks' Brendan Gaunce: Out 2-4 weeks with foot ailment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Per coach Travis Green, Gaunce will be sidelined for 2-to-4 weeks due to a foot injury.

Gaunce's absence will test the Canucks' depth up front, but it won't mean much for fantasy owners, as the 23-year-old forward has only notched four goals and five points in 34 contests this season. The 2012 first-round pick will almost certainly be placed on injured reserve for the duration of his absence.
