From canucks.com:

Vancouver Canucks Senior Vice President and General Manager, Dave Nonis announced today that goaltender Dany Sabourin has been recalled from a conditioning assignment with the Manitoba Moose of the AHL. Goaltender Wade Flaherty has been re-assigned to Manitoba.

Sabourin, 26, appeared in two games for the Moose, recording one shutout win, one loss, a GAA of 2.01 and a .920 save percentage. Sabourin has also played in two games for the Canucks this season recording one loss. The 6-foot-4, 200 lbs. native of Val d’Or, Quebec, was claimed by the Canucks off of waivers from the Pittsburgh Penguins on October 4th.

In eight games with the Moose this season, Wade Flaherty has a record of 4-3-0 with a 2.61 GAA and .896 save percentage. The 6-foot, 191 lbs. native of Terrace, BC, has appeared in 120 regular season NHL games, posting a record of 27-56-9.
The Canucks are on the road for three games this week, including a back-to-back against Detroit and Nashville on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. Alain Vigneault has said that Sabourin will start one of the three games.

I think I'll be seeing Sabourin down in Nashville when I visit my brother and go watch that game. It's the b2b one, and seems to make sense. It's good that he went to play a few games in Mooseland, so he'll be in better game shape.
