The Vancouver Canucks have a promising future with a strong prospect pool, even though it is not one of the strongest in the NHL. They have produced some elite prospects recently, like Quinn Hughes, Vasili Podkolzin, and Nils Hoglander, who are all 23 years or under. The Canucks have several prospects in their system that they hope to see making an impact at the NHL level in the near future. Here are the top 10 Vancouver Canuck prospects that might make the 2023-24 roster.

1. Vasily Podkolzin

Vasily Podkolzin was drafted 10th overall by the Canucks in 2019 and has already established himself as one of the best prospects in the organization. He has split the last two seasons between the AHL & the NHL. He is a talented forward known for his scoring ability and physical play. Podkolzin has the potential to become a top-six forward in the NHL. The 2022-23 season with Abbotsford was all about creating confidence and getting him top-six minutes, which seemed to work well, as he had 18 points in 28 games. It wouldn’t be hard to see Pozkolzin playing with the Big Canucks in 2023-24

2. Jack Rathbone

Jack Rathbone was drafted in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL draft and has been making steady progress in his development. He has been playing for the Abbotsford Canucks in the AHL and has been impressive with his offensive abilities. Rathbone is a skilled defenseman with a great shot and can quarterback a power play. He has the potential to be a top-four defenseman in the NHL and could make the Canucks’ roster in the 2023-24 season.

3. Nils Hoglander

Nils Hoglander was drafted in the second round of the 2019 NHL draft and had been making waves in the Canucks organization since then. He made his NHL debut in the 2020-21 season and has been a consistent performer for the team. He is a speedy winger known for his high energy and work ethic. Hoglander has the potential to be a top-nine forward in the NHL and could make a full-time return to the Canucks’ roster in the 2023-24 season.

4. Joni Jurmo

Joni Jurmo was drafted in the third round of the 2020 NHL draft and has been impressing scouts with his offensive abilities. He has been playing for Jokerit in the Finnish league and has been putting up good numbers. Jurmo is a skilled defenseman who has a great shot and can quarterback a power play. He has the potential to be a top-four defenseman in the NHL and could make the Canucks’ roster in the 2023-24 season.

5. Danila Klimovich

Danila Klimovich was drafted in the second round of the 2021 NHL draft and has impressed scouts with his scoring ability. He has been playing for Dynamo Minsk in the KHL and has been putting up good numbers. Klimovich is a skilled forward who has a great shot and can play in all situations. He has the potential to be a top-six forward in the NHL and could make the Canucks’ roster in the 2023-24 season.

All five of these could make an impact for the Canucks in 2023-24. However, they need to prove themselves to management and critics alike during the playoff run for the Abbotsford Canucks, plus taking the next step during the offseason. Who do you think will make a full-time NHL Canuck in 2023-24?
