Canucks Update for March:
Cory Conacher - Still leads all NHL rookies in scoring, with 20 points in 25 games, but has been cool over the past two weeks after being moved to a lower line.
Damien Brunner - Would be second in rookie scoring if he was below the age limit. Has put up 10 goals, 19 points in 26 games, playing mostly with Zetterberg.
Kyle Palmieri - Above the Calder cut-off for games played, but has nonetheless had a good first true season in the NHL, with 7 goals, 10 points in 20 games. Recently knocked out of the line-up by Raffi Torres - a rite of passage for those playing in the Western Conference.
JT Miller - A cup of coffee recall has turned into 16 games for Miller who has 4 points, but has earned Torts' confidence and gets significant minutes at times.
Beau Bennett - Has played all over the line-up, registering 5 points in 11 games, with a +6. Impressive for a guy who turned pro after only 47 games of NCAA hockey.
Dougie Hamilton - Continuing to impress all viewers, with 12 points in 23 games. Has received mostly sheltered defensive minutes, but that will come.
Brenden Dillon - Another UFA signing, Dillon is still a fixture in Dallas' top four, and has 6 points in 24 games. Ranks 7th among all NHL d-men in hits with 70.
Jake Allen - Injuries to Jaro Halak and terrible play from Brian Elliott have given Allen a chance to shine in St. Louis. Has posted 5 wins in 6 starts, with average numbers but strong reviews.
Danny Taylor, Jussi Rynnas, Christopher Nihlstorp and Richard Bachman - Although not all qualify as Calder-eligible rookies, all are #2/3 guys who have seen time at both AHL and NHL levels this year, with mixed results.
