To kick off the game, Larry "King" Kwong, the first player to break the NHL colour barrier, will be recognized pre-game. Kwong, a native of Vernon, B.C., became the first player of Asian descent to play in the NHL on March 13, 1948 as a member of the New York Rangers as they took on the Montreal Canadiens. His hockey career began in British Columbia, playing for the Vernon Hydrophones and the Trail Smoke Eaters. Larry's story as a trailblazer will be celebrated in a pre-game video and his daughter, Kristina, will be on hand for a ceremonial puck drop on behalf of her father.
Prior to the game, the Canucks will sport a new look in warm-ups. The warm-up jerseys will be red with Year of the Dog decorations on the shoulder. Select game worn warm-up jerseys will be available in the Canucks team store for purchase during the game.
There will also be pre game festivities. Fans can check out Lion and Dragon dancers, Kung Fu clubs, food carts and other festive decorations and activities. Be sure to come early!
The kid zone at Rogers Arena, located between section 101 to 103 in the concourse, will have a special feel for the game. Custom fortune cookies, a dog-colouring contest and red envelope giveaway are among some of the exciting features of the night for young Canucks fans.
Chinese cuisine will also be featured on Feb. 17 in the concourse and premium areas.
