The comets line-up as the vancouver canucks announced a pair of moves today.

The parent club has recalled forward nikolay goldobin - while returning forward sven baertschi here to utica on loan.

Goldobin has has a resurgent year this year thus far with 20 points in 18 games for the comets.

Baertschi has played in seven games with the comets this year where he has registered 10 points.

He also has two assists in six games with vancouver this year since being recalled a few weeks ago.

In 291 career n-h-l contests - he has 138 points.

In the case of goldobin - head coach trent cull said that he deserves the chance he's been given.

Trent cull: i think nikolai sometimes the game was a little bit easy for him and then sometimes he fell into a little bit of a rut and i think that's what happened with nick and we had some good talks about a week ago, almost a week and a half ago me and him, he's a good guy and we have a great relationship with each other and just making sure he's putting the extra work in and when he does really good things normally happens for nikolai and he makes everybody else around him better.
