Former Vancouver Canucks prospect Jonathan Dahlen has removed himself from social media, presumably for the reason that of offended hockey fans from Vancouver.
Dahlen, who Canucks fans had been hopeful would switch into a variation-maker for their staff at the NHL amount just one working day, was dealt to the San Jose Sharks on trade deadline working day. Describing the offer, Canucks GM Jim Benning reported that Dahlen’s agent questioned for the trade.
“His agent questioned me a pair weeks back if we could transfer him,” Benning reported in his post-trade deadline media convention.
This angered numerous in Canucks nation, who pegged Dahlen as an entitled hockey participant who wished a free pass to the NHL.
Dahlen has denied that he asked for a trade, though clearly all was not ideal in Utica from his standpoint.
“We experienced a tiny stuff down there in Utica where I really wished to feel great about myself and have self confidence in my game and play effectively,” Dahlen explained to San Jose Sharks blog Anxiety the Fin. “I never want to say everything bad about any person, but I did not feel much too great about my hockey game there.”
Regardless of whether he questioned out or not, it appears to be a significant amount of money of Canucks Country handed judgement on the 21-12 months-outdated Swede fairly rapidly.
“I uncover it hard to get messages from Vancouver fans,” Dahlen reported in a Swedish-language job interview with HockeyNews.se. “They have written incredibly hateful messages and it finished with me eliminating both equally Twitter and Instagram. I have tried out to preserve myself in the darkish now and centered on trying to feel a bit improved.”
Dahlen explained to HockeyNews.se that he did not want to be traded, though which is not to propose that he was satisfied with how he was currently being deployed.
“They have experienced the improper method and that is what I have explained to my agent, that it is the improper way to handle me if they want me to develop” reported Dahlen, who experienced 29 details in 50 AHL video games with the Comets this time.
“Instead of becoming a improved hockey participant, it has absent in the opposite path. I have not been able to do everything offensive without currently being concerned of currently being singled out if I make a mistake.”
Dahlen has 3 helps in 3 video games so much with the Sharks’ AHL affiliate, the San Jose Barracuda.
It is been an exceptionally disappointing time for Canucks prospects in Utica this time, and it began in Oct, with AHL rookies currently being scratched with regularity in favour of veterans. Dahlen, who was named MVP of the Swedish next division pro league very last time, was traded for a third-spherical select in very last year’s draft.
Prior to Dahlen, there was Petrus Palmu, who struggled to get enjoying time with the Comets, so he left for Finland in December. Palmu was named Rookie of the Yr enjoying pro hockey in Finland very last time, but left Utica obtaining played just 12 AHL video games, scoring no plans and just just one guide.
Kole Lind (11 details in 40 video games) and Jonah Gadjovich (7 details in 33 video games), both equally next-spherical picks by the Canucks in 2017, have not played significant roles possibly.
