Newsflash NHL: Mikael Granlund isn’t the only Granlund poised to put up big points in 2017-18. Vancouver Canucks center/winger Markus Granlund experienced a breakout campaign last season scoring 19 goals and 32 points in 69 games.

I don’t know about you, but I counted about 5 or 6 post and in snipes in this highlight package. What’s a reasonable expectation for Granlund in 2017-18?

Some prime powerplay time alongside Daniel and Henrik Sedin should help him reach yet another career high.
