Brayden Fengler / September 12, 2023
September rolls around and just like that, we have something to talk about. It’s been the off-season for the entire NHL, so news and developments around the league have been slow going, and Vancouver has been no exception. With just under a month left to go before the puck drops on the regular season, the Canucks upper brass decided that they couldn’t wait to get people talking. In a monumental...

Quinn Hughes: Favourite for The Next Canucks Captain

Trent Leith / September 10, 2023
There has been rumour and speculation swirling around for some time regarding who would be the next captain of the Vancouver Canucks. There are three clear candidates to fill Bo Horvat’s vacant shoes to become the 15th captain in franchise history, JT Miller, Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes. However, no official captain had been named. JT Miller Miller is a fan favourite choice from anyone who loves the fiery forward,...

Höping för Höglander

Brayden Fengler / August 30, 2023
This is a make-it-or-break-it year for Nils Höglander. He’s in his third year of playing NHL games for the Canucks. Now at 22 years old (23 in December), the Canucks probably hoped that he had a little more to show for his time in the NHL to date. However, thanks to prolonged development time in Abbotsford last season, Nils will have a strong foundation of improvement to draw from heading...

The Canucks Top 10 Warmup Jerseys

Reid Boerma / July 27, 2023
Is anyone interested in some prime off-season hockey conversation? No? Too bad, it’s almost August and even Dhaliwal is tweeting golf photos. We’re in the middle of the off-season and although some of us may have moved on, others (like myself) are still reeling from the news that broke last month regarding the NHL ban on special event warmup jerseys across the league. When I heard the news, it brought...

Projected Forward Lines for the Canucks 2023-24 Season

Brayden Fengler / July 22, 2023
The Stanley Cup Playoffs are long over, the NHL Entry Draft is complete, and NHL Free Agency has come and gone. With all those items now firmly in the history books, the next NHL season is starting to peer more and more around the corner. The Canucks haven’t made any major moves on the offensive side so far this off-season, but there have been enough pieces shuffled around that there...

Projected Defensive Pairing for the Canucks 2023-24 Season

Trent Leith / July 11, 2023
Every season at StadiumChinatown.ca, we project out both the forward lines and defence pairings after the significant moves for the summer have come and gone. To say there has been some turnover on the back end would be a massive understatement. Only a single player under contract was on the opening night lineup, Quinn Hughes. Only two regulars are expected to be regulars again, Hughes and Tyler Myers (who started...

How Should the Canucks Replace Oliver Ekman-Larsson

Brayden Fengler / June 26, 2023
With Oliver Ekaman-Larsson now officially out of the picture after his buyout at the hands of Patrick Allvin, his pending absence next season certainly brings with it a lot of questions. Many of those questions involve what the Canucks will do with the cap space created, and how they will look to fill OEL’s position on the ice. With a lot still yet to happen this off-season, the ramifications of...

Speculation: Columbus Might Be the Perfect Fit for JT Miller

Trent Leith / June 11, 2023
Everything surrounding the Canucks lately seems to be quiet, there isn’t much happening and the rumour mill hasn’t started churning with anything new so far this summer. Unlike the Canucks, the Columbus Blue Jackets have been wasting no time getting a kick start to their summer by making trades and shaking up the coaching staff. Firstly, the Jackets have all but announced that Mike Babcock will be the new head...

Conor Garland joined the American team during this tournament, earning eight points in nine games. Additionally, Tyler Myers laced up for Canada and has kept himself at a respectable +6 during the tournament, in addition to netting himself one...
