Snap Shots: The Canucks are 10-0-0 when they are Outshot at Home

The idea of these “Snap Shots” articles is to explore some smaller ideas or stats that I find. In the process of looking through stats, one number sticks out to such an absurd degree that it merits an article all on it’s own. This is one of those times. The Canucks have won every game…

The Canucks Defence Hasn’t Been This Good in a Long Time

The Vancouver Canucks made significant moves this offseason to improve their defence corps. Adding Tyler Myers was the biggest offseason transaction, but Oscar Fantenberg and Jordie Benn have also been useful additions this season. Obviously, the biggest change to the Canucks’ blue line wasn’t acquired via trade or free agency, but through the draft.  Quinn…

CanucksArmy Postgame: Welcome to the Penalty Box Parade

When I was a young boy, my father took me into Vancity to see a Canucks game. He said, “Son, when you grow up will you write the postgame about the penalty box parade?” Today was that day. Luckily there was a great off ice story to cover first. The Canucks were coming off a…

Snap Shots: Canucks Draft Pick Nils Höglander at the World Junior Championships

All eyes will be on Nils Hoglander at this year’s tournament after Andrei Svechnikov scored the second “Nyssa” goal of his brief NHL career. While Svechnikov may have popularized the move, Nils Höglander has been scoring lacrosse goals in professional leagues since Svech was a rookie. I may be biased,  but I think Höglander’s “Nyssa”…

Snap Shots: Canucks Draft Pick Toni Utunen at the World Junior Championships

In all my years, I have never seen as many Molson Canadians spilled as last year when Toni Utunen scored the overtime goal that eliminated Canada from the 2018 World Junior Championship. Obviously, that is because we have so many great breweries in the Vancouver area and we weren’t drinking Molsons. (What else could I…

Over the next few days I’ll break down these four players and project what kind of impact they could have on their country’s WJC teams. Obviously, Vasili…

Under the Tree: A Canucks Twitter Story

The holidays are here and it feels as though pumpkin spice has been forgotten quicker than Radim Vrbata’s 2014-15 MVP season, so I thought it would be fun to include Canucks Twitter in the yearly festivities and see what Canucks fans would like to see under the tree for Canucks players. Oh, and just to…

CanucksArmy Postgame: Quinn Hughes Comes up Huge for Canucks

The Canucks had one game left before the Christmas break. Monday night they took on the Edmonton Oilers, coming into this game riding a two-game win streak. Alex Edler would draw back into the lineup and with Edler coming in, it meant someone would have to come out. Travis Green decided to sit out Jordie…
