Mike Gillis took another dip into the free agent market to pick up a supposed-to-be RFA who became a UFA due to fumbled paper work on the Panther’s part. Tanner Glass a former Florida Panther signed a 2 way deal for 500,000 and is a physical, energetic, two-way forward that occasionally drops the gloves and is the first to protect his team mates.

The Canucks also released their Prospects Camp Roster yesterday. The annual prospects camp begins next week and takes the rookies through a variety of activities from on ice practices to dryland workouts and a race up the Grouse Grind. This year’s invitees and players in attendance are:


Peter Andersson
Kevin Connauton
Ryan Donald*
Taylor Ellington
Kris Fredheim
Evan Oberg
Jody Pederson*
Jeremy Price
Travis Ramsey*
Yann Sauve


Steven Anthony
Matt Butcher
Mats Froshaug
Dan Gendur
Cody Hodgson
Taylor Matson
Tyler McNeely*
Matt Pope
Prab Rai
Anton Rodin
Jordan Schroeder
Kellan Tochkin*
Eric Walsky
Patrick White


Joe Cannata
Morgan Clark
Brian Stewart*

*Players have not been signed by the Canucks

College prospects Kris Fredheim, Matt Butcher, Taylor Matson, and Patrick White who are attending, as per NCAA rules, cannot have their pro team pay for their travel expenses. Instead they will have to pay for themselves to keep their NCAA eligibility.
