Sven Baertschi

Sven Baertschi has been a pleasant surprise for many Canucks fans.  He was casted away from the Calgary Flames for a 2015 2nd round draft pick (Rasmus Andersson) in a trade that drew mixed reviews.  Of course, the debate of whether Vancouver should have kept the second round pick and pick Rasmus themselves will still...

Trevor Linden

Trevor Linden is one of the most iconic players of the Vancouver Canucks.  Of course, the argument for the Sedins and Pavel Bure can be made as well. Trevor got his start in the NHL by being drafted into the league in 1998 by the Vancouver Canucks and played a total of 10 years during... Continue Reading →

Jake Virtanen

I'm very hopeful for Jake Virtanen, currently a prospect for the Vancouver Canucks, to continue on with developing into a Top 6 NHL player. While things haven't gone as well as some later pick in his draft class (ie. Dylan Larkin / Brayden Point) but as we all know drafting sometimes is a crapshoot. As... Continue Reading →

Jim Benning

From Edmonton, Alberta over to Vancouver, BC we have another former NHL player who now resides in the management team in Jim Benning. Jim is obviously the GM for the Vancouver Canucks and has brought star players like Brock Boeser and (hopefully soon) Elias Petterson into the once thin prospect pool. I do like what...

Garth Butcher

Former Vancouver Canuck, Garth Butcher was a "tough as nails" retired NHL hockey player. He played an aggressive style which earned him a reputation of a "needler" for the ability to goad players into taking penalties. Garth's claim to fame could be the fact that his style of play resulted in a trade, with Garth... Continue Reading →

Eddie Lack

A great return from former Vancouver Canuck and Carolina Hurricane.  Eddie Lack has an incredibly infectious personality where if you've ever seen him in front of the camera, you'll first notice he's always got a huge smile on his face.  He never (or I've never seen) him lose his cool and just generally seems like...

Robert Kron

A former Vancouver Canuck and current scout for the Carolina Hurricanes, Robert Kron was a fifth round draft pick. As an NHL player, Robert played for a total of four teams making the playoffs only twice.  Once in the 1991/92 season with the Vancouver Canucks and the other time with the Carolina Hurricanes during the...

Roberto Luongo

Out of all the players in the NHL, Roberto Luongo, former Canuck and current Panther is the best of the best. His twitter handle @strombone1, is absolutely hilarious and if you've never read his tweets, you definitely should spend some time doing it! From making fun of his goals against, to coaches and even fans... Continue Reading →

Jake Virtanen

Another autograph from 6th overall pick in the 2014 draft, Jake Virtanen. I've been really impressed this year with Jake's level of play and find that he's really coming into his own. This year, Jake has taken his game to another level as it is clear he has significantly improved his conditioning, which in turn... Continue Reading →

Troy Stecher

I was so happy to finally get a Troy Stecher card signed.  He's one of the newer Canucks and had gone through the college route that so many hockey players seem to go through these days.  As an undrafted prospect, the Canucks likely caught sight of Troy after watching Brock Boeser who was on the... Continue Reading →

Markus Granlund

Expect to see a nice string of Canucks players that I got at a recent practice at the local University.  Surprisingly, the Canucks have done extremely well and Markus Granlund is definitely a part of the success this year.  He's been part of the rejuvenation of the Canucks and has contributed 2 points in 9...

Brock Boeser

The Vancouver Canucks drafted a great, young player in Brock Boeser during the 2015 NHL draft.  Brock is known for his shooting abilities, more specifically the quickness of his shot. After being drafted into the NHL, he opted to continue his college career with the UND (University of North Dakota) where he amassed 94 points... Continue Reading →
