The Canucks play tomorrow in Dallas and Friday in Arizona.
Of the two call-ups, Gaunce may be the most likely to play, as Vancouver’s only other extra forward is Adam Cracknell, a center. The Canucks may also want to see what they’ve got in Gaunce, 21, before they decide whether to keep Jared McCann and/or Jake Virtanen.
Biega, 27, is likely just insurance against another injury. Matt Bartkowski replaced Hamhuis last night.
