NORTH SAANICH, B.C. - Adam Cracknell scored 1:39 into 3-on-3 overtime as the Vancouver Canucks beat the San Jose Sharks 1-0 on Monday night in NHL pre-season action.
It was something of a homecoming for Cracknell, who'd played his minor hockey in Victoria.
The 30-year-old Cracknell signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canucks after splitting last season between the Columbus Blue Jackets and the American Hockey League.
The two teams will meet again on Tuesday at Rogers Arena in downtown Vancouver.
