Mid-Day Head-shots is a new CanucksArmy feature where we round up today’s freshest Canucks news including funny gifs, awesome videos, cool photos and interesting links. If you’ve written a Canucks blog-post and want it to be featured here, e-mail me at thom.drance@gmail.com.

The Canucks will again host the 2011 Young Stars tournament in Penticton. The tourney will feature prospects from the Sharks, Jets, Flames, Canucks and the heavily favored Edmonton Oilers. The tourney runs from September 11th to the 15th and tickets go on sale July 16th. Hopefully we’ll be able to stream the games again on Canucks.com, like we were able to do last year, so I can further fuel my Kevin Connauton man-crush.

Passittobulis’ Daniel Wagner has a take on the Canucks efforts to suck up to Chicagoans by improving the local AHL team (and new Canucks affiliate) the Chicago Wolves.
