MacEwan was reassigned to AHL Utica on Monday.
Considering MacEwan served as a healthy scratch in 15 straight contests, it shouldn't come as a surprise to see the winger headed back to the minors. The 23-year-old notched one goal, one assist and three shots in eight outings in which he averaged 9:11 of ice time.
MacEwen has watched the last 16 games from the press box.
MacEwen last suited up on Dec. 12 for the Canucks, when he saw just 6:15 of ice time. He has one goal and one assist in eight appearances. MacEwen will likely remain scratched unless and can be left on the fantasy waiver wire.

MacEwen has tallied four goals and six helpers in 15 games for the Comets this season, in addition to the two points he's notched in eight NHL contests this year. Given his offensive upside, coach Travis Green could opt to insert the 23-year-old into the lineup against Pittsburgh on Saturday if Josh Leivo (leg) is unable to play, though Loui Eriksson could get a look as well.
The Canucks assigned MacEwen to AHL Utica on Sunday.
The Canucks activated Tyler Motte (lower body) from injured reserve Sunday, so MacEwen's NHL stint will end for now. The 23-year-old MacEwen has played eight games with the Canucks this year, averaging 9:10 of ice time per contest and totaling two points.
The Canucks recalled MacEwen from AHL Utica on Wednesday.
MacEwen was sent down Saturday after a seven-game NHL stint where he notched a goal, an assist and 19 hits in a fourth-line role. Since Micheal Ferland exited Tuesday's 4-1 loss to the Maple Leafs with an injury, MacEwen will add depth ahead of Thursday's clash against the Hurricanes.
MacEwen was demoted to the AHL on Saturday.
With Jay Beagle (personal) and Micheal Ferland (concussion) both returning from their respective absences, MacEwen's services are no longer necessary in Vancouver. MacEwen just scored his first NHL goal Tuesday for his second point in seven games with Vancouver this season.
MacEwen scored his first NHL goal and added six hits in Tuesday's 5-2 win over the Senators.
MacEwen capped a four-goal first period for the Canucks with his tally. He now has two points and 19 hits through seven games this season. The 23-year-old winger will likely continue to bring more physicality than points in his fourth-line role.

MacEwen played just his fourth game of the year after being called up from AHL Utica. He chipped the puck ahead to Jake Virtanen, who used his speed to tuck one home.

MacEwan was recalled from AHL Utica on Wednesday.
With both Brandon Sutter (lower body) and Jay Beagle (undisclosed) both dealing with injuries, the Canucks added some additional forward depth with MacEwan and Tyler Graovac. The 23-year-old MacEwen logged four games for Vancouver last season, in which he recorded one assist, two shots and four hits. Once the team gets healthy, the center will almost certainly be shipped back to the minors for the rest of the year.
MacEwen was reassigned to AHL Utica on Monday.
The 22-year-old notched an assist in his NHL debut against the Sharks on Feb. 11, but his inexperience in the defensive end over four games against divisional opponents came to light from his minus-4 rating over that span. Unless the Canucks find themselves in dire straits at the center position due to injuries, MacEwen may not return to the top level for the rest of the season since the club will only be afforded four standard recalls once Monday's 3 p.m. ET trade deadline passes.
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.
