Just one: Jake Virtanen. The Canucks’ first round pick in 2014 has played 77 games for the Comets, including almost an entire season in 2016-17. The Canucks draft pick currently on the roster with the second-most games played in Utica is Adam Gaudette, who has played all of seven games with the Comets.
