As mentioned in the tweet, Erik Gudbranson, Troy Stecher and 30 members of the Canucks staff will represent the organization this weekend.
The Canucks have been taking part in the Pride Parade as far back as 2012, when then forward and now skills coach Manny Malhotra marched with Patrick Burke. Last season, Emerson Etem along with two vehicles and multiple staff took part.
This follows the Canucks wearing Pride jerseys for warmups prior to their February 28th contest against the Detroit Red Wings. That was part of the ‘You Can Play’ nights across the NHL.
It is great to see the Canucks continue their presence in the event and step up with even more participation this year.
