Only on a night when the Canucks played their home opener, to kick off their 50th season, and named a new captain, before scoring eight goals at home for the first time since 2003, could a post-game meeting this unique fly so under the radar.
Brandon Sutter and Jay Beagle were tasked with a challenge by coach Travis Green this past summer: come up with a team-building activity for an off day in Banff, Alberta, between games in Edmonton and Calgary.
It was an emotional day within the Canucks dressing room Monday. Adam Gaudette was told he made Vancouver's roster to open the season, while Sven Baertschi, Alex Biega and Nikolay Goldobin were all placed on waivers.
With a blink of eye, the 2019 Vancouver Canucks Training Camp is over and preseason action begins tonight as the Canucks take on the Calgary Flames in a pair of split squad games, one in Calgary and the other at the Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre in Victoria.
