Canucks assign three to AHL Comets

The Vancouver Canucks on Friday assigned centers Zach Hamill and Pascal Pelletier and left wing Colin Stuart to the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League.

All three players have past NHL experience. Hamill, the No. 8 pick in the 2007 NHL Draft, has four assists in 20 career games with the Boston Bruins. Pelletier is scoreless in 13 games with the Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks. Stuart has eight goals and 13 points in 56 games for the Atlanta Thrashers and Buffalo Sabres.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
