K-Wings are proud to return defenseman Nychuk to the Canucks (AHL).

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings, proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, announced the Abbotsford Canucks (AHL) have recalled the loan of defenseman Chad Nychuk on Wednesday.

Nychuk, 22, heads to the Canucks after playing in eight of the K-Wings’ first nine games to start the year and led the team in shot attempts with 22. Loaned to Kalamazoo on October 24, the right-shot blueliner returns to Abbotsford with 1 assist and 0 penalty minutes on the season.

Last year, Nychuk earned an ECHL All-Star nod by recording 4 goals and 17 assists with just 10 penalty minutes in 36 games played for the K-Wings in the first half of 2022-23. The 6-foot 1-inch, 194-pound Rossburn, Manitoba native spent the end of last season in Abbotsford, recording 5 assists in 13 games for the Canucks.
