Canucks summer daze

...the dog days of summer are here and they're spectacular

by 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. 

Sven Baertschi 

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'! 

Tweet from @SvenBaertschi: It was great to meet @DangeRussWilson today at @NikePortland

Tweet from @SvenBaertschi: So excited to be with the @Canucks for another three years! Love the city and the fans!! #IsItOctoberYet

Tweet from @SvenBaertschi: What an unforgettable weekend marrying my best friend and celebrating it with our friends!! And of course our ring Bear ;)

Brock Boeser

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.  

Tweet from @Canucks: Slow down @BBoeser16, save some 🚨's for us! 😉Boeser is off to a 🔥 start in @DaBeautyLeague summer action.

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.

Sam Gagner

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!

Markus Granlund

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.

Bo Horvat

Horvat's summer began in Denmark at the 2018 World Hockey Championship. He's been touring the globe (and wedding hopping) ever since.

Jacob Markstrom

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.

Anders Nilsson 

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!

Antoine Roussel 

Just happy to be here! 

Tweet from @Rous_ant: Hello Vancouver, my family and I are thrilled to start our next chapter with the @Canucks. Glad to be back in Vancouver. Just looking at my profile pic and noticed it looks like I���m on the Canucks bench! Funny how life works sometimes... #NewThreadsNeeded #Destiny

Troy Stecher 

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.

Jake Virtanen 

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.
