Sorry Detroit. Your native son is all our for another 6 years.
The Vancouver Canucks wrap up their five-game home stand with a date on Hockey Night in Canada with the Detroit Red Wings tonight at GM Place. The Red Wings are fresh off a shootout loss last night in Edmonton, and will be looking to avenge an earlier bad loss to the Canucks just over two weeks ago.

The Vancouver Canucks announced today that they have re-signed alternate captain, US Olympian and silver medallist, and all-around fan favourite Ryan Kesler to a six-year contract extension.
You could hear the cheers and screams of joy all across the Lower Mainland this morning.

The players aren’t listening to all the talk about head shots. James Wisniewski proved that last night with his hit on Brent Seabrook, and became another in a long list of players who aren’t paying attention.

The passing of time can often be a cruel occurrence, on March 15th Canucks.com proudly reported that Mikael Samuelsson had been named the NHL’s first star of the week, for the week of 8-14 March. During that time Samuelsson accrued some impressive stats, ten points six goals and four assists in four games. Then on 17th March the site reports that Samuelsson will miss at least two – three weeks with an upper body injury. In seventy games the Canucks RW has a total of thirty goals placing him second in that category for team stats, he also has fifty-three points. With just twelve games left on the regular season schedule this could cause a rather problematic situation for Vancouver, or could it?
