day 2293 – nucks verse preds

the canucks have been doing surprisingly well out of the gate this season. i’ve been keeping up with the canucks games on television as much as i can. my linden jersey was ready to catch it live at rogers arena for this first time this season. the young players and new prospects have been doing really well. so glad to witness pettersen score two goals on his birthday. i’m still debating if i should buy a 50th anniversary jersey with pettersen stitched

day 1800 – canucks showdown 

saw so many familiar faces watching the canucks prospects summer showdown. there’s a few highly touted prospects i’m really excited to see and hopefully one or two of them will make the big club next year. i enjoyed the format of the event cause i got to watch them in five on five, four on four, three or three and even shootout. the carve burger was okay, but there was no nutritional value. i guess going with the poke bowl would have given me some preferred veggies

day 1701 – canuckle head

upgrading our seats to section 104 on henrik bobble head night. showed up the rogers arena when the doors opened to get this the exclusive souvenir before hitting the lounge for some grub. was looking forward to try the famous lobster roll until i realized there’s onions, so ended up with a triple o’s burger instead. the canucks was definitely the better team and dominated the ducks even though losing would be for a better cause at this point of the season. i think of the games i’ve gone to this season, only one was a loss 

day 1637 – canuckle head


dethroning the kings wasn’t expected but that’s what canucks did as eriksson potted two goals within four minutes into the first period. my prediction prior to the game was a win four to two,  but they went on to drown the kings six to two. getting the win was good but also seeing boeser score two more and horvat finally back in the lineup was even better. this night out was definitely needed as i had one heck of a day at work fielding ridiculous requests after requests. wish these people dishing out unreasonable requests would have some understanding and knowledge of what we do is really not cut and paste

day 1635 – canucks ice


this is an extraordinary experience being able to skate on the sheet on ice that the canucks play on. third straight day lacing up my skates to skate on arguably the best surface in vancouver. i really can’t turn down any chance to attend canucks members exclusive events like such. i came for the skating experience, but i got more than that; the bench, the hall and locker room were all available for roaming. fin was also on hand so i got a chance to take a goofy photo. two straight sundays where i didn’t even bother setting an alarm because i definitely earned the sleep in

day 1599 – open practice


was in for a treat to an exclusive canucks event of open practice plus meet and greet. boeser’s line up was by far the longest but so thrilled to have taken a photo with this good looking fellow and even gotten his autograph. it may have been another casual practice for them, but i watched with excitement and my nerdy side came out. i left happy having gotten a few more photos and autographs, including arguably the best goalie in canucks history

day 1554 – schneider’s return

rushed out after finishing all my work and teaching cause i was invited to catch a hockey game – perks from season ticket holder. i’m very happy to have row sixteen view of schneider’s return to rogers arena. he’s the reason i had this game circled in my calendar. it was an exciting game to watch, and one where i wasn’t just cheering for the canucks. in the end canucks took the loss, but definitely outplayed the devils only to be shutout by schneider
