Canucks summer daze
...the dog days of summer are here and they're spectacularby Derek Jory @NoJoryous / Vancouver Canucks
The dog days of summer are here and they're spectacular.
Long days. Sunshine. Beaches. Flip-flops. Hammocks. BBQs. Ice cream. Outdoor movies. Concerts in the park.
Summer is a wonderful time and the Vancouver Canucks are enjoying it just as much as you hopefully are. Here's a look at what's been going on with the players, who have been balancing work and play perfectly so far.
The summer of Sven has been life changing. Actually. He started it out meeting the most dynamic quarterback in the NFL, Russell Wilson. A month later, he re-signed with the Canucks on a three-year deal. Two weeks after that, Baertschi married his best friend Laura, with his dog Bear acting as 'ring bear'!
The Flow's off-season began prematurely because of injury, but he's all rested up, healed up and lighting up scoresheets in Da Beauty League summer tournament.
Boeser caught up with us in Vegas at the NHL Awards to update his recovery.

In two Da Beauty League games this July, Boeser led the tournament in scoring with six goals and nine points.
Aside from that, Boeser has been living on the water. Boats, jet skis and the greatest inflatable water volleyball court ever. No one is happier with Brock's slow summer than his dog Coola.
Michael Del Zotto
The Canucks resident deejay made some renovations to his home in Toronto, Ontario, and as you can see, he's loving life.
Del Zotto has split the rest of his time between traveling and working out.
Surf's up Sam! We assume. He looks the part anyways.
Gagner attended his sister Jessica's wedding in July and the family was dressed to impress!
Granlund is quiet on social at the best of times, even more so in the summer. But this photo of him and Chris Tanev as Wayne and Garth from last Halloween is too good not to re-share.
Horvat's summer began in Denmark at the 2018 World Hockey Championship. He's been touring the globe (and wedding hopping) ever since.
The Canucks tender has a tender place in his heart for soccer. And for Sweden. He's insanely into both. So the World Cup was right up his alley, with Sweden finishing top-eight.
Another Canucks tender, more Swedish pride. Nilsson was jacked to represent his country at the 2018 World Hockey Championship and his play was a major reason Tre Kronor captured gold. Not a bad way to kick off his summer!
Just happy to be here!
Perhaps the most well-traveled of all the Canucks this summer, Stecher took on London, France and Greece, posting some epic photos along the way.
Virtanen has been in the Barber-shop more times than you can count since last season ended. Working with stickhandling specialist Pavel Barber, Virtanen will have some silky smooth mitts come fall.
