Canucks recall Grenier, send down Gaunce

DH Vancouver Staff Mar 14, 2016 10:13 am

Brendan Gaunce is heading back to Utica after a four-game call-up with the Canucks.

Gaunce had 0 points, 4 shots, and was a -4 in this stint with Vancouver. He averaged just north of 10 minutes of ice time per game.

In his place, Alex Grenier is on his way back up. The imposing 6’5″, 200-pound winger has played one game with the Canucks this season, registering 4 shots in limited minutes against the Winnipeg Jets on November 18.

Grenier has 35 points (12-23-35) in 56 games with the Comets this season. Given his age (24), this will be an important audition for Grenier. Time could be running out for him to prove that he can contribute at the NHL level.
