    Travel doesn't slow psyched-up callup

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Canucks prospect Harold Druken was still sky-high after a day of travelling from coast to coast and playing in his first NHL game.
     
     "It's been quite the day. I've been dreaming about this and it's all I ever thought about even when I was four years old," the 20-year-old told the Vancouver Province after playing in a 4-2 loss to Colorado.
     
     With key injuries to veterans Mark Messier (knee sprain) and Alexander Mogilny (back spasms), the Canucks were looking for some spark from Druken and rookie centre Artem Chubarov, who was also recalled from the AHL farm in Syracuse. Druken, playing on a line with left-winger Darby Hendrickson and right-winger Bill Muckalt, formed a credible combination.
     
     Druken had led Syracuse in scoring after 20 games with 20 points (9-11-20). He lit it up in the OHL last season with Plymouth (58-45-103).
