Sheldon Dries, Gamblers alumni and current center for the Vancouver Canucks, scored his first NHL goal of the season last Thursday, April 14, in a 7-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes.
Dries was recalled by Vancouver two weeks ago after playing for their AHL counterpart, the Abbotsford Canucks, a majority of the season.
During his time in Abbotsford, the Clark Cup winner was best on the team with 62 points due in large part to his 35 goals, third best in the AHL. Dries will now have an opportunity to showcase his talents in the NHL to finish the season.
His Thursday powerplay goal was his first points in the league since the 2018-2019 season when he played for the Colorado Avalanche.
