Hodgson 4th in Rookie Scoring
Standard Spin: It is all finally starting to come together for Cody Hodgson, who has battled a serious back injury over the past two seasons. Saturday he recorded 2 goals - the first two goal game of his young career - including the gamewinner with just minutes remaining in the third period. Hodgson represents serious depth for the Canucks, especially if he can tap the elite scoring prowess he displayed as a junior player. His best year was 2008-09 when he recorded 92 points in 53 games, along with 16 points in 6 games at the World Juniors.
Game notes: David Booth and Ryan Kesler also scored for the Canucks, and Logan Couture scored twice while Joe Pavelski recorded 2 assists. (Jan.22)
