We are all Canucks.
Last night, my son Aidan lived that in a very special way. He was selected to join the Vancouver Canucks for the pre-game skate and the national anthems for one of the biggest games in Canucks history: game 7 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs against the Chicago Blackhawks.
This is his story …
It’s a party in Vancouver, but we don’t like dark birds of prey
And then Aidan gets his face painted at the CBC’s offices
Aidan chills by playing some hockey at gate 16 and hits me with a “puck”
Aidan makes a new friend – a son of one of the Canucks’ coaches:
The pre-game action heats up:
Lu makes some sick saves:
Backstage at Rogers Arena – Aidan gets final instructions
Aidan skates out with Lu and the rest of the Vancouver Canucks
The whole crowd joins in singing the Canadian national anthem
The game is unbelievably awesome – one of the best in Canucks’ history
Canpages (my company) shows on the scoreboard at center ice
The Canucks win in overtime and Rogers Arena ERUPTS
The celebration continues outdoors

We had a wonderful time. Thanks Canucks for a great opportunity and a great game! Thanks Vancouver for such a fun and exciting and safe celebration after the game!
Here’s to the next round: Nashville here we come.
