The Vancouver Canucks are close to re-signing the two faces of their franchise.
Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini told The Vancouver Province that the Sedins twins - Daniel and Henrik - are nearing an agreement on contract extensions that will keep them members of the Canucks for the foreseeable future.
While no extensions have been reached yet...

Canucks could help bring home a trophy?
Ah fall, the time where the leaves begins to change color, bikinis are sadly packed away in favour of parkas and morning iced coffees become hot again.
Hang on, this also means hockey season is nearly upon us… which means Fantasy Hockey is almost here and its time to prepare to draft like a champion so you can ridicule your friends mercilessly...
Plenty of potential at Young Stars tourney
The Young Stars tournament is well underway in Penticton with the Vancouver Canucks kids doing their best to impress upper management.
And while everyone seems to have their eyes focused on the Horvat’s, Gaunce’s and Jensen’s, there’s a pretty decent group of undiscovered talent that will be trying to fight their way to a spot somewhere...
Roberto Luongo returned to the city he thought he'd left for good Friday pulling on a Vancouver Canucks practice sweater for the first time since the team shocked everyone -- especially Luongo -- by instead trading Cory Schneider to the New Jersey Devils at the NHL Draft.
Almost two months later Luongo said it still seemed strange to come back.
"It was a bit odd flying...
John Tortorella feels “privileged and honoured” to have the opportunity to be an NHL head coach in Canada and become the 17th bench boss in Vancouver Canucks history.
“It’s something I’ve always thought about,” Tortorella, a native of Bedford, Mass.., and Vancouver’s first U.S.-born coach, told reporters earlier this summer. “One of my dreams … was hoping some...
Frankie goes to Utica?
A long and mostly boring offseason is finally over, as the Vancouver Canucks gear up for training camp on Sept. 17.
Aside from the signings of Brad Richardson and Yannick Weber, the summer has been void of major moves, and the Canucks will head into the 2013/2014 season with the same faces you’ve become accustomed to Mike Gillis — just under the rule of...
from Steve Ewen of the Vancouver Province,
The Vancouver Canucks goaltender fired off a tweet from his @strombone1 handle on Thursday, proclaiming “Can’t wait to see all my friends tomorrow! All are welcome!” It featured a picture of himself in the middle of a media scrum.
Sure enough, 20 or so newspaper, radio, television and blogger types showed up at UBC to get...
Press conferences are strange
It’s an open secret that they generally consist of misleading statements, boilerplate talking points and other untruths. That said, they are the only way to assess the stated goals of an organization and its general manager.
While it may be a less than credible medium for relaying information, we can take a look at Mike Gillis press conferences to...
Bo Horvat (@BoHorvat)
Vancouver‘s 1st round (9th overall) draft pick Bo Horvat was front and center Thursday night in Penticton B.C, and didn’t disappoint. On only his second shift of the game, Horvat jumped on a turnover in the slot caused by pesky forechecker and fellow first round draft pick Hunter Shinkaruk, and with a quick release to the top corner, Bo has arrived...
A lot of players who would have otherwise been signed to contracts weren't this summer with the salary cap going down. That has meant there's some decent talent available on the free agent market and now that's meaning invitations to training camps.
Mason Raymond is one player who received an invite his coming from the Maple Leafs. The former Canucks forward is a surprise...
Mason Raymond will attend the Toronto Maple Leafs' training camp on a professional tryout contract.
The 27-year-old left wing spent the last five-plus seasons with the Vancouver Canucks. He has 80 goals and 98 assists in 374 career NHL games.
Raymond, who confirmed the tryout in a text message to The Canadian Press, could fill a need for the Maple Leafs on the third line, where...

Between Roberto Luongo drama, the hiring of John Tortorella and everything else that's gone on this off-season, the fact that the Vancouver Canucks have joined a new division has slid under the radar.
The Canucks, along with two old division rivals - the Calgary Flames and Edmonton Oilers - have joined the Anaheim Ducks, Los...

The Calgary Flames rookie squad took on that of the Vancouver Canucks last night in what seemed like a potential domination from the Canucks team. The Flames, however, came out with a 4-1 win despite being outshot in the first period 8-18.
The Flames rookies came out of the gates rather slow and seemed a little less composed than displayed...

Before I give my thoughts on last nights prospects game, let's deal with the real Canucks news first.
Roberto Luongo took to the ice with his teammates yesterday, for the first time this season. After he spoke to the media and posed for a few photos with fans.
