Canucks assign C Shannon to minors

Oct 11, 2007 - 7:15 PM VANCOUVER, British Columbia (Ticker) -- Apparently the Vancouver Canucks are looking for more than just goals from Ryan Shannon.

The Canucks on Thursday assigned Shannon to Manitoba of the American Hockey League despite the fact that the center has scored in two of Vancouver's three games.

Acquired from Anaheim during the summer, Shannon tallied a power-play goal in the Canucks' 4-3 overtime win over Calgary on Saturday before added another man-advantage marker in an 8-2 loss to Philadelphia on Wednesday.

In three games, the 24-year-old leads the team in goals and was tied for fourth in shots with seven. He also had four penalty minutes and minus-7 rating.

In 56 career games with Anaheim and Vancouver, Shannon has four goals and nine assists for 13 points.
