On a personal note, seeing Zack MacEwen making his NHL debut tonight will be a once in a lifetime experience for me. To be able to watch every second of a player’s pro career and see him make that jump feels pretty special to have been able to follow/write about his young career.
Johnson on MacEwen : He kicked the door down and didn't give us an option to not call him up. Our staff have done a great job with Zack but at the end of the day this is just Zack. He does everything he can to to be special everyday.
Bons succès à notre ancien attaquant Zack MacEwen, qui fera ses débuts dans la LNH ce soir avec les Canucks de Vancouver!
Good luck to @zmacewen11, who’ll make his NHL debut tonight with the @canucks!
@canucks778@Indy__Robin@EPettersson40 Thatcher Demko is now in the NHL, Zack MacEwen just got called up, Sautner played games last year...they’ve largely been working with undrafted players until this season and the kids in Utica are all taking steps this year.
#Canucks #MacEwen He’s a better AHL player then #Virtanen ever was. Any bottom 3rd or 4th Nucks winger, should be looking over the shoulder. Mac just needs more then a 1-2 game op. https://t.co/UFHGg0GUdG
