Canucks Alumni to be Honored at up coming Express game
/ Vancouver Canucks
Coquitlam, BC – November 23rd, 2012 – 13 Canuck Alumni on hand at Coquitlam BCHL
to sign autographs, support community, and hopefully see $10,000 go to a lucky fan. Canuck heroes such as Harold Snepsts, John Garrett, Darcy Rota & 9 others will be hand at the November 23rd BCHL game between the Coquitlam Express & West Kelowna Warriors.
In lieu of the NHL lockout, Canucks’ Alumni are doubling their efforts in the community to help support hockey fans affected by the labour dispute. This evening is dedicated to local junior hockey players and the fans who support our great frozen game at the grassroots level.
Fans will have the opportunity to take in an exciting BCHL game and walk away with a Ryan Kesler jersey, a $250 gift basket from Ricky’s Restaurant and $10,000 courtesy Coquitlam Chrysler.
Confirmed Canucks: John Garrett, Harold Snepsts, Darcy Rota, Jack McIlhargey, John Ashbridge, Bob Murray, Gerry Sillers, Dennis Kearns, Chris Oddleifson, Doug Halward, Dennis Ververgaert, John Grisdale & Blair MacDonald.
The Coquitlam Express organization has 6 alumni who are regulars in the NHL including Kyle Turris (Ottawa), Milan Lucic (Boston), Andrew Ladd (Winnipeg), David Jones (Colorado), Brandon Yip (Nashville) & Mark Dekanich (Winnipeg). The Express were RBC Cup (National Jr. ‘A’) champions in 2006.
