Canucks camp battles

Many players set to compete for few positions

by Ryan Biech @ryanbiech / Canucks Freelance Writer

With the Young Stars classic in the rear-view mirror, the Canucks organization turns its attention to training camp, which officially began Thursday at Rogers Arena. Now that the physical testing is done, the Canucks are in Whistler about to hit the ice and begin a camp that comes with many questions throughout the line-up.

Looking at the forward group, it's clear that Henrik and Daniel Sedin will once again occupy the first line, but could see a new winger with newcomer Loui Eriksson, who is currently occupying that spot with them at the World Cup. In the mix for that spot, is incumbent Jannik Hansen, who had a career-high 22 goals alongside the Sedins last season.
