It looks as though former Gopher Jordan Schroeder will make his NHL debut on Wednesday for the Vancouver Canucks. The Prior Lake, Minn., native was recalled by Vancouver earlier today from the Chicago Wolves (AHL), skated with the Canucks in the afternoon and is expected in the lineup Wednesday night against Calgary.
"I'm excited -- I've been working really hard for this. It's been a long time, and I'm really looking forward to the opportunity," Schroeder told CanucksTV. "I'll definitely have some butterflies, but you have to treat like it's just another game. Just do your job and good things will happen."
