The Vancouver Canucks announced that they have recalled right winger Alexandre Grenier from their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate Utica Comets.
Grenier, 24-years-old, has played in 33 games with the Comets this season. With six goals and 13 assists, he has a total of 19 points ranking him second on the team in scoring. Additionally he has recorded 26 penalty minutes.
He made his NHL debut earlier this season on November 18, 2015 when the Vancouver Canucks were in Winnipeg, Manitoba to play the Jets.
In his second season with the Utica Comets in 2014-15, the 6’4”, 211-pound forward recorded a career-high 43 points, consisting of 26 assists and 17 goals, finishing the season ranked second on the team for goals and he was tied for second in overall points.
Grenier tied for second on the team, and lead the team in scoring, during the 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs when he put up six goals and nine assists for 15 total points in the 23 playoff games played.
The Laval, Quebec native was originally selected in the third round (90th overall) by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2011 National Hockey League Entry Draft.
The Vancouver Canucks next play tonight as they host the Arizona Coyotes.
