    Holden returns to Canucks

     VANCOUVER (CP) -- Josh Holden seems to be back on track.
     
     The former first-round draft pick (12th overall in 1996) said he feels less pressure these days.
     
     "To be honest, this is probably the best I've felt in three years," Holden told the Vancouver Province.
     
     Holden had a goal and an assist Wednesday in his return to the Vancouver Canucks after a hernia landed him a 10-game conditioning stint in Syracuse.
     
     "I'm pretty excited right now," Holden said. "It's been a long road back."
     
     He played 10 minutes nine seconds in 15 shifts, winning four of six faceoffs and recorded four hits. He even got a third-period elbowing penalty playing on a line with crashers Donald Brashear and Matt Cooke.
     
     "I played with Brash a bit last year and he gets a lot of room out there," said Holden, 21. "Cooke is like a pinball out there."
