Patrik Allvin and the Canucks inked the veteran defenseman, Christian Wolanin in July 2022. The blueline had never established himself as a full-time NHLer or even a dominant AHLer.

Things changed drastically when he laced his skates up for the Canucks both in Vancouver and Abbotsford. The left-handed shot defenceman found a niche within the Canucks' organization and was genuinely dominant all year in Abbotsford. Unfortunately, he's been dealing with an injury and has not played since March 23rd.

While in Abbotsford, he collected nothing less than an impressive 49 assists, and 55 points in 49 games. As stated by Jeff Paterson, he still leads all AHL D-man even after being in the NHL for two months.




The breaking news about it, however, is that the 28-year-old's success has been recognized as he's been named to the AHL 2022-2023 First All-Star team.


Wolanin signed a two-year extension earlier in the season for his performances. He also represented Abbotsford at this year's AHL All-Star game.
