Chatter around the Canucks and one of if not their best prospect Aidan McDonough has been everywhere in the latest bit.

Only on rare occasions do highly touted prospects go back to the NCAA for their Senior Year since it gets them really close to their UFA eligibility as it did a few years back with Jimmy Vesey. Today, Allvin announced, with a sight of relief, that the young man had been put under contract which led to McDonough giving his first interview as Canuck.

Along the way, not only did McDonough reveal that Jack Rathbone was his best friend since forever, but he also confirmed that he had been a major advocate in his signing with the franchise. The belief was that Rathbone was disgruntled with his usage, perhaps we've been wrong all along and he still fits within the team's plan, here's the interview.




The plan is still not yet confirmed as to whether or not he'll be going to Abbotsford or Vancouver. One thing is sure, is that this young man seems to be happy with the opportunity he's been granted. A well-spoken person, he surely looks as if he'll be a fan favorite in Vancouver.
SHOULD HE PLAY IN THE NHL UNTIL THE END OF THE SEASON?
