Today was a day unlike most where I was able to go down to Rogers Arena to help support my team. The call went out for volunteers to be a part of a promo video for the Canucks and there I was cheering and waving alongside everyone else. Roger Neilson (whose statue we wer under) would have been proud as we waved the “white towel” and wore our Canucks jerseys.

On  Sunday  Feb 13, 2011 at Rogers Arena, young hockey players from Vancouver will learn skills straight from NHL Alumni – former Canucks Garry Valk and Dave Babych – as part of the Canadian Tire Hockey School Skills Camp. The Vancouver camp is one of a series of one-day training sessions taking place across Canada, designed in partnership with the NHL.
