The Canucks are back in action after a brief holiday break. Let’s check in on them, their Christmas spirit, and their rivals’ typos.
  • The San Jose Sharks’ attempt at spelling “Canucks” in their preview video from last week is bizarre and hilarious.
  • The Gagner family photos from the Canucks family skate are pretty adorable.
  • Brock Boeser and his small relatives played knee hockey over the Christmas break and it turns out these little Boeser kids are a tougher test than NHL goalies.
  • Markus Granlund wants nothing to do with this photoshoot.
  • Brendan Gaunce finally bumped his goal slump when Erik Gudbranson’s shot hit his leg on its way into the net. Gaunce is having fun with this, promising that he will put the next one in off of his head.  
  • You likely heard about Jake Taylor, the Vancouver teenager who stepped in when Noor Fadel was the victim of a racist attack on the Canada Line. The Canucks took part in an effort to thank Jake for his actions, hosting both Taylor and Fadel at a recent game.  
  • The team made a bunch of little Merry Christmas videos and the best one is this messy Hutton-Virtanen-Chaput team effort:
  • Fully disinterested Cooper Gagner was also good, though:
  • Former peewee teammates Chris Tanev and PK Subban are still friends! Adorable!
  • The Nilsson family Christmas Instagram was also pretty adorable:
  • Finally, Elias Pettersson’s reaction to his shot hitting a post is just great.
