Los Angeles Kings at Vancouver Canucks NHL Matchup

The Vancouver Canucks signed forward Micheal Ferland during the offseason in hopes he could help bolster their top line.

Through the first two games, however, the top grouping has not produced a goal.

Vancouver coach Travis Green may opt to try some new combinations when the Canucks host the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday night, or he might give Ferland another try with elite scorers Elias Pettersson and Brock Boeser.

Ferland, who scored 17 goals with the Carolina Hurricanes last season, was dropped down to the third line during practice on Tuesday, while J.T. Miller moved up to join Pettersson and Boeser.

“Obviously, we haven’t been good at all,” Ferland told reporters after the Canucks’ 3-0 road loss to the Calgary Flames on Saturday. “It’s frustrating. I need to be better.”
