Canucks Training Camp Roster II

According to the White Towel, The Canucks have made three cuts, sending Sawyer Hannay and Alex Friesen back to their junior clubs and releasing Matt Fraser outright. As the Canucks continue to trim the roster, PiTB will be following the dudes they keep, and saying a few words about the dearly departed, but there isn't much to say about these guys. Friesen and Hannay are recent draft picks that showed some kill, but, understandably, aren't ready for this level at all. We'll see them next year and hopefully their improvements impress. You've gotta feel for Fraser, though, who earned an invite to this camp out of the prospects tournament but didn't get a chance to get into a real preseason game. Hopefully this isn't the last we hear of him.

This leaves the Canucks with 55 guys in training camp, below:
