The defenceman was recalled by the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday, ahead of the team heading out for a three-game road trip to California. Sautner, presumably, will fly direct to Los Angeles, where the Canucks face the Kings on Wednesday evening. He has already been recalled once this season, before the Canucks’ previous road trip, a four-game jaunt to the east coast. That was because Oscar Fantenberg was unavailable due to illness.
