Vancouver Canucks 2014 News and Updates
3/4/14 – The Canucks could not hold on to a 2-0 lead in the Heritage Classic, dropping a 4-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators Sunday. After playing two in a row “at home” following the Olympic break, Vancouver will visit Phoenix and Dallas this week. Earlier this morning, the Canucks acquired Jeff Costello (Ottawa) from their Heritage Classic counterparts in exchange for defenceman Patrick Mullen. One day before the trade deadline, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings remain front-runners to land Canucks Center, Ryan Kesler but will Vancouver say good-bye to the former Selke Trophy winner?
2/26/14 - The Vancouver Canucks are excited to get back to work after the Olympic break to put an end to their seven game skid. Captain Henrik Sedin has been sidelined with an injury all month, but should be back in the lineup for their all-important Wednesday game against the St Louis Blues. The Canucks welcomed back four players with medals: Dan Hamhuis & Roberto Luongo (gold for Canada) and Daniel Sedin & Alex Edler (silver for Sweden), and hope these players will provide much-needed confidence for the team. Luongo is confident "there's no [Sochi] hangover here" and their first game will put that sentiment to the test. Score Vancouver Canucks tickets when they face the St Louis Blues tonight!
2/21/14 – Canucks fans will get to see their team at Rogers Arena twice prior to the Mar 2 Heritage Classic when Vancouver will honor members of the team that advanced to Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup finals. Trevor Linden, Kirk MacLean, Cliff Ronning, Jyrki Lumme, Gino Odjick, Dave Babych and Geoff Courtnall are among those expected to attend the ceremony with former head coach and general manager Pat Quinn. Vancouver Canucks tickets are averaging $174 for remaining home games; surprisingly Heritage Classic tickets are $10 cheaper than that!
2/4/14 – The Canucks head in to tonight’s heated game against the Bruins having lost their last four and fighting to stay relevant in the Wild Card race.
Vancouver holds a one point lead for eighth place in the Western Conference over the Phoenix Coyotes. The 2011 Staley Cup Final foes no question dislike each other, which makes Tuesday’s rivalry game a must-see! Following tonight’s hump game in the Canucks five-game road trip, Vancouver will close out its pre-Olympic break week at Montreal (2/6) and Toronto (2/8).
1/30/14 – Vancouver native Mike Santorelli underwent shoulder surgery today and will miss the remainder of the 2013-14 season. The Canucks will try to keep a positive attitude as they head on a five game road trip before the Olympic break. Veteran Kevin Bieksa will not make the journey as he is dealing with an undisclosed injury; that, following the announcement that Chris Taney has a broken thumb and will be off the ice until after the Olympics. The Canucks have gone 2-3-0 without coach John Tortorella; his 15-day suspension ends in time for his return Monday at Detroit. Is the upcoming break coming at just the right time for the Canucks? Vancouver fans hope so!
3/11/13 - The Vancouver Canucks have won four consecutive Northwest Division titles. That makes six total for the club, more than anyone else in the Division. Vancouver has also won back-to-back Presidents Trophies. Canucks fans are used to seeing their team on top but have had to watch Vancouver struggle recently with injuries to defenseman Kevin Bieksa and Center Ryan Kesler. A fifth straight Division title may depend on consistency and whether or not someone can fill the void of Bieksa and Kesler.
