Welcome to my first Benched Whale edition of This and That. For those of you who are new to my blog, this is where I address all the Canuck news of the day. Each link may or may not include a line of analysis, wit or sarcasm. Enjoy.
- It's not just an upper boy injury, Alex Edler is expected to miss 2 weeks due to a left arm injury (how specific!). Mathieu Schneider will sub in for Edler for the game against Atlanta
- Michael Grabner has been cleared for light skating on his own
- TSN reported that Hodgson will not be attending the Team Canada World Junior Selection Camp. Hodgson hasn't skated since being sent back down by the Canucks in September.
- Jordan Schroeder has been invited to the Team USA selection camp
- Former Vancouver Giant, Evander Kane makes his return to Vancouver with the Atlanta Thrashers tomorrow. His rookie dinner for the Thrashers set him back over $6000.
- Not really Canucks news but: Vesa Toskala has won two games in a row! This hasn't happened since like 1997. This causes eyebleaf to exclaim: "Toskala is the greatest goalie. Arguably ever. And Ron Wilson is the greatest coach of all time." I love Leaf fans.
