Canucks Send 3 Players Down to AHL

The Vancouver Canucks have sent down Sheldon Dries, Noah Juulsen, and recently acquired Lane Pederson to the AHL.

Dries has played in two games for Vancouver this season, where he has an assist and an even rating. The 28-year-old was called up due to the Canucks' serious injury trouble, but with the team recently adding Jack Studnicka to the roster, it makes sense that Dries is heading back to the AHL. In two games with the Abbotsford Canucks this season, he has four points.

Juulsen has been bouncing from the AHL and NHL a lot this season, and that trend is only continuing. That is quite common to see with depth defensemen, and Juulsen will likely be called upon again at some point this season. In two games with Vancouver this campaign, he has zero points and a minus-1 rating.

Pederson was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes a few days ago, and he will be beginning his tenure with the Canucks organization in the AHL. In 29 games last season with the San Jose Sharks, he had two assists and a minus-16 rating.
