Babych Please – September 16th, 2016


Actual hockey is being played! With the World Cup of Hockey and the annual Young Stars Tournament getting underway, fun things are finally happening in the world of the Canucks. 

  • Ben Hutton and Bo Horvat took a trip up Grouse Mountain this week and took this charming video. I am almost positive that Ben Hutton is dancing 24/7. It’s all he does.  

  • Local boy Troy Stecher is blogging from the Young Stars tournament. His first entry features this photo of him winning a championship with the Penticton Vees. Fellow prospect Michael Garteig is there as well, “in the very middle of the photo getting crushed”.
  • The only thing Team North America is lacking is a father figure, because they are all literally children. Luckily, Jannik Hansen is ready to play dad. 

  • Daniel Sedin is having a great time at the World Cup, even when he’s in the penalty box:

This is almost as good as the time the referees sent Henrik Sedin to the box after Daniel Sedin held an LA King:

  • Good guys Ben Hutton, Brandon Sutter, and Derek Dorsett read to children this week:

  • Whackanuck

    You missed the big news this week. Bob Mackenzie said if the Canucks are completely healthy all year and all the young players progress significantly and none of the older players’ games diminish, they might compete for a playoff spot. Now that’s a bold prediction.
