The good times can only last so long, though; despite some good moments here and there from the…

Canucks Army Postgame: Not even the Brock Star is safe

The injury bug. Let’s talk about him for a second. Every year, there’s an NHL team that just seems to almost get laughably hurt. It’s obviously not funny to watch player after player go down with injury, but there seems to be nothing to do BUT laugh – if the fans think about it too…

Canucks Army Postgame: The Brock Star keeps on rolling

I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. After hearing it in the broadcast, though, I’m not changing the title. You can’t make me.

FINAL SCORE: VANCOUVER CANUCKS 4, PITTSBURGH PENGUINS 2 Clayton Keller may have 10 goals – but have you seen this Brock Boeser kid? THE RUNDOWN The Vancouver Canucks came into their game against Pittsburgh hoping that a few things would happen; they’d see a great game from Jacob Markstrom, they’d find their scoring again, and…

Thatcher Demko recalled by Vancouver

Anders Nilsson is about to become a dad. According to Rick Dhaliwal of Sportsnet 650, the tandem starter’s wife is due to deliver today – so he’s out of commission for the moment, awaiting his family’s newest addition. In his place? It’s Thatcher Demko time. It was announced on Saturday, via official press release, that…

CanucksArmy Postgame: Anders Nilsson is the team’s shutout king

The Vancouver Canucks gave Anders Nilsson his first start of the season on Tuesday night, hoping to turn things around after kicking off the season with a disappointing 1-2-1 record.

Canucks Army Post-Game: Burrows comes home

FINAL SCORE: OTTAWA 3, VANCOUVER 2 (SO) We could be sad about this outcome, but let’s instead re-watch this insanely touching Alex Burrows tribute over and over again until we’ve lost all ability to feel anything. Never drafted. Too unskilled. Too old to be a prospect. Got a chance. Gave his all. Slayed a dragon….

Jake Virtanen, Brock Boeser both make Canucks final roster

The 2016-17 season didn’t go quite the way 2014 sixth-overall pick Jake Virtanen had hoped. The power forward found himself skating out in just 10 NHL games, despite putting up a 55-game sample size the year prior. His AHL performance wasn’t much to write home about, either; the winger was good for just nine goals…
