January 2023 – In his first full season in the AHL, the undrafted center has performed exceptionally well. Sasson has accumulated 24 points in 33 games, primarily playing alongside AHL veterans Linus Karlsson and Tristen Nielsen on the second line. This total is particularly impressive, especially considering the slow start he had, with only three points in his first 10 games. Since then, he has displayed remarkable consistency, going only once without a point in two consecutive games. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte

May 2023 – The Vancouver Canucks signed Max Sasson, a promising forward from Western Michigan University, to a two-year entry-level deal in March. The 22-year-old, amassed an impressive two-year NCAA career, posting 64 points (24G + 40A) over 75 games and was a solid plus-34 in that span. The Michigan native brings a high motor, and above-average skating ability. Although he posted decent numbers at the Collegiate level, the hopes are for him to find his game as a predominant bottom-six role player, who can contribute on the scoresheet from time-to-time. A heavy role in Abbotsford is his likely landing spot for the 2023-24 campaign, however, do not be shocked to see a game or two to show off his motor at the NHL level. Dave Hall
