Vancouver Canucks Call Up Forward

The Vancouver Canucks have called up Lane Pederson to their NHL roster.

Pederson was acquired by the Canucks earlier this season as a part of the Ethan Bear trade. Since the move, Pederson has been outstanding at the AHL level, as he has a spectacular 17 goals and 24 points in just 18 games with the Abbotsford Canucks. Now, it will be intriguing to see if the 25-year-old forward can translate some of this offensive success to the NHL level from here.

Overall, it is fair to say that Pederson has earned this call-up to the NHL squad. Let's see how he takes advantage of it.
