The Vancouver Canucks reached a loan agreement with the Manitoba Moose for three players from their AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets, on Tuesday.

As part of the agreement, centre Tyler Graovac, defenceman Ashton Sautner and goaltender Arturs Silovs will join the Moose effective immediately.

“This agreement allows recalled players to observe a seven-day NHL-mandated quarantine rather than the 14-day federal quarantine they would be subject to if recalled from Utica,” said Canucks general manager Jim Benning. “It gives us more flexibility and greater access to an additional group of players. We appreciate the cooperation of the Jets and Moose in assisting us with this arrangement.”
