Now that his season is officially over, there is expected to be a lot of interest in NCAA free agent forward Collin Graf and Rick Dhaliwal has given an update on if the Canucks are in the mix or not.

21-year-old Collin Graf is drawing interest from several teams around the National Hockey League, including the Boston Bruins and the Pittsburgh Penguins. It's unclear when Graf intents to put pen-to-paper on his entry-level contract, the undrafted forward will have plenty of options, however, it doesn't appear that the Vancouver Canucks will be one of those teams.

According to Rick Dhaliwal of Donnie & Dhali, the Vancouver Canucks are not in the mix for Collin Graf.

"For those asking the #Canucks are not in the mix to land top NCAA free agent forward Collin Graf." Dhaliwal said.



Graf, a native of Lincoln, Massachusetts, has spent the last two seasons with Quinnipiac University after transferring there from Union College in 2022. His move to Quinnipiac was certainly the right decision as his offensive game has taken off and NHL teams see him as a potential option for their rosters in the fall. Last season, Graf finished the year with the third-most points among anyone in the NCAA with 59, only behind Adam Fantilli and Logan Cooley and he went on to win the National Championship in April 2023 with Quinnipiac.

In 34 games this season, Graf had 49 points (22 goals, 27 assists), four penalty minutes and was a plus-24.
