BOLDUC RE-ASSIGNED TO MOOSE

By Elizabeth Moffat, Canucks.com

After coming off an ankle injury suffered in the first game of the regular season 25 year-old Alex Bolduc has been reassigned to the Manitoba Moose.

The left winger joined the Canucks as a free agent on July 2, 2008. Since then he has played 23 games with the Canucks, 15 of them last season. In 207 games with the Manitoba Moose he has registered 92 points (39-53-92).

HENRIK’S 600th

Henrik Sedin recorded his 600th career point in Calgary Wednesday night. The point came in the form of an assist to Daniel Sedin’s game winner early in the second period.

“I didn't really think about it during the game,” Henrik told Jim Jamieson of the Province. “I hope I can reach 700, I've got a few more seasons.”

Henrik is only the fourth Canuck in franchise history to hit the 600 mark, behind former captains Markus Naslund, Trevor Linden and Stan Smyl.

Henrik picked up another assist later in the game off a goal from line mate Alex Burrows. He now has 27 assists in 23 games, which leads the league by a margin of four.

Henrik is now on pace for 96 assists this season, which would make him only the second player to break 90 in over a decade. Joe Thorton recorded 92 assists with San Jose in 2006-07.

If Daniel wants to one up his slightly older brother he has 23 games to record 25 points to put himself in the 600 club in fewer games than Henrik. Daniel has 14 goals and 14 assists this season.

HOME GROWN HAT TRICK

Mason Raymond returned home to Cochrane Alberta before Wednesday’s game in Calgary, something he may want to do more often. Raymond scored his second career hat trick against Calgary.

"My mom and dad, grandmas and grandpas, aunts, uncles, the whole crew came in," said Raymond. "It's a ton of fun when they are all here."

His first triple scoring night came against the same team, December 27, 2009 at the Saddledome.

"I don't know what it is, maybe it's the home-cooked meal or something," Raymond told Brad Zeimer of the Vancouver Sun, referring to the 45 minute drive he made to have dinner with his parents. "It was a roast."

Raymond might want to have his parents over to cook for him more often. His first goal two minutes into the game broke a six game goalless drought. The 25 year-old is now tied for third on the team in goals (7-10-17).
