Jett Woo has been chosen with the 37th pick by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Woo will join fellow defensemen Quintin Hughes as the second pick by the Canucks in the 2018 Entry Draft. Woo came into last season as one of the better defense prospects available in the 2018 draft, but injuries derailed his season. The 17-year-old was limited to just 44 games with the Moose Jaw Warriors in 2017-18, which put a damper on his draft stock. Despite not looking like himself after he returned to the lineup, Woo still managed to finish the year with nine goals and 25 points in 44 regular season games and he added three more points in 14 postseason contests. When he’s on his game, he’s a physical, shutdown defender that is extremely difficult to play against. Assuming he can stay healthy, that’s the kind of role Woo will play at the NHL level.

The Vancouver Canucks have selected Quinn Hughes with the seventh overall pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Hughes plays a complete game at a high pace.  His creativity and mobility allows him to effortlessly exit the defensive zone and get on the attack on his own or with a quick outlet pass.  Hughes’ confidence with the puck extends to the offensive end, where he contributed five goals and 29 points in 37 games for the University of Michigan during his freshmen season.   The 18-year-old defender represented the United States at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship and the World Hockey Championship.  Hughes’ speed and decision-making are high quality assets that fit today’s NHL game to a tee.  He feels he is NHL-ready, but he may need at least another year in college to develop further, particularly in his own end, and get stronger.

Markus Granlund has signed a one-year, $1.45 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.

Granlund is coming off a rough campaign where he had eight goals and 12 points in 53 contests. This new deal can be seen as a show-me contract as he needs to prove to the Canucks that he is worthy of a long-term investment. He does have potential and it will be worth keeping an eye on him in 2018-19.

Chris Tanev is reportedly "in play," according to Sportsnet's Rick Dhaliwal.

The report also suggests that the Toronto Maple Leafs are interested, but that the offers, in general, aren't good enough to get Tanev out of Vancouver right now. The 28-year-old had two goals and 11 points in 42 games this season. He has two years remaining on his current contract that comes with a cap hit of $4.45 million. Teams could become more and more aggressive as the draft approaches.

Quinn Hughes took part in the 2018 IIHF World Championship and feels confident going into the draft that he can compete at the NHL level.

"I did a really good job at the world championships showing I can play against stronger and more physical guys," said Hughes. "I feel confident with my game and how it was over there, so there aren't any doubts or questions at this point. But still lots to improve on, for sure." The diminutive defender has a great offensive skill set blended with superb skating and great on-ice vision. Hughes is projected to be at least a top-10 pick in the 2018 NHL Entry Draft.

Markus Granlund and the Vancouver Canucks have had contract talks.

Granlund can become a restricted free agent this summer after completing his two-year, $1.8 million deal. The Canucks are talking to Granlund about a short-term deal, which isn't surprising given that he's coming off a rough campaign. He had eight goals and 12 points in 53 games.

Olli Juolevi, who underwent a microdiscectomy procedure for a disc in his lower-back, should be fine by the time training camp starts.

"It’s just a minor surgery — he should be up and going in four to six weeks," Canucks GM Jim Benning said. "They are pretty simple operations now and it’s bit of a setback, but he’s just going to have to train harder at the end of the summer to be ready to go." Juolevi was taken with the fifth overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. He had seven goals and 19 points in 38 SM-liiga games last season.
