VANCOUVER — All is well with Vancouver Canucks assistant general manager Laurence Gilman, who got first-round draft pick Brendan Gaunce signed and also survived an emergency appendectomy.

Gilman was rushed to hospital late Sunday afternoon and had his appendix removed. He returned home early Monday afternoon.

"Still a little woozy," he said.

Gaunce, an 18-year-old centre, was selected 26th overall by the Canucks at this summer's draft. He signed a three-year entry-level deal for the maximum $925,000 per season allowed in the collective bargaining agreement. He also received a 10-per-cent signing bonus.

Gaunce is expected to play this season for the Ontario Hockey League’s Belleville Bulls. He had 28 goals and 68 points in 68 games with the Bulls last season.
