If the Sedins’ careers had to end with a meaningless game in April, it’s absolutely perfect that they ended like this. Daniel and Henrik Sedin led the Canucks to victory in their final game on Vancouver ice before retirement, with Daniel scoring both a second-period goal and the overtime winner off Henrik assists.
After an 18-year NHL career spent entirely together (not to mention several seasons with MODO in Sweden), Henrik and Daniel Sedin have jointly announced their plans to retire at the end of the season in a letter published on the Canucks website. With the Canucks out of the playoff picture, that means this Saturday…
Canucks winger and 20-year-old rookie point leader Brock Boeser took a hard shot to his left foot in the second period of Vancouver’s game Sunday against the Flames. Even though Boeser clearly could not put any weight on his foot, play was not stopped, so he had to use his other leg to essentially row himself from the…
Brock Boeser is only just barely no longer a hockey teen. (He turned 20 last month.) Yesterday, he was playing for the University of North Dakota. This morning, the first-round draft pick signed a contract with the Canucks, and this afternoon, he scored his first goal:
Five Vancouver Canucks are out of tonight’s lineup with suspected cases of mumps.
The hockey boys were rowdy last night! A few hours after Gustav Nyquist tried to embed his stick in Jared Spurgeon’s facehole, Sabres netminder Robin Lehner and Canucks agitator Alexandre Burrows spent the evening going at each other—with Burrows the clear winner.
As the last seconds of overtime trickled away in Tuesday’s game against the Predators, the Canucks had the puck in their offensive zone with a power play. They lost!
In the second period of tonight’s Canucks-Devils game, Canucks defenseman Philip Larsen was brutally laid out by a Taylor Hall hit he never saw coming. The Canucks and Devils briefly scuffled before everyone realized that Larsen was immobile at the feet of the scrum. His helmet came off before the fight was stopped.
Here’s Canucks goalie Ryan Miller doing his best Brandon Crawford impersonation, aborting an attempt to get off the ice for an extra skater to come back and rob Henrik Zetterberg’s try at an empty-net goal.
The Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs spent most of the third period hitting, grabbing, shoving, and fighting each other Saturday. The anger eventually boiled over into a line brawl.
The image above might be a tenuous representation of hockey, but that’s because it’s Vancouver Canucks hockey, baby.
A sad, disturbing story surrounding Canucks winger Linden Vey, whose father is about to go on trial for allegedly plotting with his mistress to murder their respective spouses.
Vancouver Canucks goalie Jacob Markström lost his blocker glove during Monday night’s game against Winnipeg, and still prevented Jets winger Marko Daňo from scoring a goal.
The Canucks’ moms are with the team on their two-game road trip (compare the happy picture above with this one of the Leafs’ dads), and everyone was having a good time in Vancouver’s 3-1 win at Colorado. No one more so than Beth Bartkowski, who saw her son score his first goal in more than three months.
Vancouver ended Florida’s 12-game winning streak with an OT goal by Daniel Sedin (off a feed from his twin brother Henrik), but the real action came after the final horn. It also featured, from Panthers TV guy Denis Potvin, one of the most inexplicable insults I’ve ever heard.
Early in last night’s 3-2 Coyotes win, Canucks forward Daniel Sedin took a batted puck directly to the mouth. Watch the replay at the 22-second mark (or don’t!); you can see a tooth make a leap for freedom.
Canucks defenseman Dan Hamhuis probably wasn’t feeling too good after giving the puck away right next to his own net. He was probably feeling a lot worse when he caught a slapshot to the face immediately afterward.
Boston Magazine published a lengthy story today on Alex Guerrero, who is Tom Brady’s personal body coach, TB12 business partner, counselor, and—according to court records—a modern snake-oil salesman. The FTC investigated products promoted by Guerrero twice, the magazine reports, and in both cases the FTC found that…
