Yannick Weber has returned into the roster of the Vacouver Canucks and the three musketeers (Yannick Weber, Luca Sbisa and Sven Bärtschi) are reunited in Vancouver! The Vancouver Canucks are the only team in the NHL that are having 3 Swiss players in their roster. Unfortunately the Canucks aren’t having a good time at the moment and are staged on the last rank of the western conference. This is one of the reasons, why the Canucks are changing their roster quite often. Yannick Weber is always having to change teams and partly plays for the Utica Comets (AHL) and the Vancouver Canucks. Knowing the NHL, this won’t change for him until the the Vancouver Canucks manage to climb up the standings.
Sven Bärtschi seems to have finally made it into the fixed roster of the Canucks with good stats. He has scored 11 goals and 9 assists in 47 regular season games. With a +/- stat of +5, Luca Sbisa is one of the few players in the roster, who has a positiv +/- stat and marks him self as a solid defense man.
The three musketeers compared:
