SAN JOSE — Wow, did that year ever fly by fast. Just like that, defenceman Frank Corrado has burned through the first year of his three-year entry level contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
Corrado played his sixth game with the Canucks on Sunday night and that means he now only has two years left on his contract.
He was allowed five freebies in this shortened season (including playoffs) before his contract status would be affected. The Canucks obviously like what they see and do not want to remove him from their playoff lineup.
Corrado, who split his season between the OHL's Sudbury Wolves and Kitchener Rangers, said his contract status was not on his mind as he prepared for Game 3 of the series with the San Jose Sharks.
"Obviously, that's not something I think about," Corrado said after Sunday's game-day skate. "That's their decision, not mine. I'm happy with whatever decision they make. I'm just happy to be in the lineup."
