CANUCKS CALL UP JAKE KIELLY

Rookie goaltender, who played 24 games for Kalamazoo last season, heads up to NHL to join Vancouver in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Vancouver Canucks, the National Hockey League affiliate of the Kalamazoo Wings, announced Thursday the club recalled goaltender Jake Kielly.

The 23-year-old rookie played 24 games for the K-Wings in 2019-20, posting a record of 7-11-4, with a 3.97 goals-against average and a .887 save percentage. He will now head to Edmonton to join the Canucks in the Western Conference bubble for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Kielly signed a two-year entry level contract with Vancouver in April 2019 and has yet to play an NHL game. The Eden Prairie, Minnesota native previously played three seasons at Clarkson University.

Vancouver faces Vegas in game six of their second round series tonight at 9:45 p.m. ET. The Canucks trail the best-of-seven series three games to two.
