SunLife Financial is providing the opportunity for fans young and old to skate with Vancouver Canucks (current and alumni) at Rogers Arena on January 14, 2012 — but you have to win your way in.

Skate with Canucks Logo

I’ve had the chance to skate at Rogers Arena, and even walk around a bit on the ice to film a promotional spot, but I’ve never skated with team members – how great would that be? You can win one of 25 spots through the Canucks contest and they have also saved room for one lucky Miss604 reader and up to three of their friends or family members. Here’s how you can enter to win a spot on the ice:

  • Leave a comment on this post naming your favourite moment as a Canucks fan (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win your spot at the Skate with the #Canucks event via @VanCanucks & @Miss604 #Miss604Holidays

The Skate with the Canucks event takes place January 14th from 7:00pm to 8:15pm at Rogers Arena. Participants will be required to bring their own gear (rentals not available) and sign a release waiver before stepping onto the ice. I will draw one winner at 9:00am on December 28, 2011.

Official rules, except for dates that are exclusive to the Miss604 contest, may be found on the Canucks contest page. At least one member of the 2011-2012 Vancouver Canucks and Canucks Alumni will be on the ice at the event.

    Wow, this doesn’t sound terrifying at all. lol. Fav moment is probably just spending time with my friends watching the games at a pub! And hearing the cheers in the Westend everytime we score!

  2. DarylTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:21am PST

    First Canucks game I went to when I was 12 against the Blackhawks in 1980

  3. EdTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:24am PST

    Watching the confetti rain down last year when we won the conference finals. Going all the way this year!!!

  4. CarlosTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:25am PST

    Watching Pavel Bure go end-to-end to score a goal against the Kings, when Gretzky played for LA, back in the Coliseum, with my family. Awesome.

  5. CandiceTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:28am PST

    of all the games i went too, ONE I will never forget, Trevor Linden’s final game as a Canuck… yes I actually cried a little as he skated around the rink touching is hand from his heart to the fans… best – game – ever.

  6. LauraTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:30am PST

    My favorite moment was sprinting across downtown to win tickets last yer because I couldn’t affor to buy some for me and my boyfriend who have been fans since we were kids!

  7. IsabelTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:32am PST

    My fave moment? just partying in the streets after game 5 in the stanley cup final series. the last win we had, and the greatest time.

  8. Deirdre RowlandTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:33am PST

    Favourite moment as a Canucks fan – sitting beside then veteran Canuck Fan (he looked like a Christmas Tree decoration) his last season before he passed away. Cheering and laughing together. It was amazing!

  9. BrandonTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:41am PST

    Fav moment was either Greg Adams or KB3’s goals that put the team into the finals in ’94 and 2010 respectively. Watched the first with my siblings and Dad and went nuts (15 at the time). Watched the second with my daughter (she’s 5) and we both went nuts again! Lots of family memories in the 2 runs.

  10. JoeyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:51am PST

    When I was in Girl Guides around a decade ago, I got to be in a promotional photo for them that was in the Canucks dressing room with Steve Staois!

  11. JennTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:53am PST

    About 15 or 16 years ago at the Canucks Family Carnival… meeting (and hugging) Russ Courtnall and Martin Gelinas!

  12. Erica KTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:54am PST

    Best moment as a fan was when we won game 7 round one against blackhawks… I went from sad tears (couldnt control it) to happy! Most amazing feeling ever =)

  13. BaileyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:54am PST

    My fave moment (s) is when Burrows “shoots to the sky” after scoring a goal in memory of his friend Luc Bourdon…always makes me smile. Its so sweet!

  14. SabinahTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:55am PST

    My most memorable Canucks moment is easily the game 7 OT winning goal against the Blackhawks by Alex Burrows during the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs. This is one of those moments that you always remember who you were with and where you were when it happened. I remember we all jumped up and down on the sofa when it happened. Picture a bunch of full grown adults doing that LOL!

  15. Tracy DefoeTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:56am PST

    Favorite Canucks moment – Alex Burrows overtime goal in Game 2 of the finals last year just beats out the Trevor Linden shoot out goal we witnessed during his last year. Both were unforgettable moments I shared with family.

  16. JulieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:58am PST

    Watching the playoffs last year!

  17. Matthew K.Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:03pm PST

    Favorite memory is 94 bure’s goal in overtime against the flames

  18. StephanieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:03pm PST

    Meeting Dan Cloutier hehe.

  19. Paula ChudleyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:04pm PST

    Favorite Canucks moment – 2007 Playoffs, Round 1, Game 7 against the Dallas Stars, Trevor Linden scored the winning goal in the 3rd period! The stadium was electric!

  20. JamesTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:06pm PST

    Favorite moment.. so many to choose from its hard to pick just one. But I would say celebrating all the victories that the Cancuks accomplished last year!

  21. BethTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:07pm PST

    I agree with Erica K – it was so sweet to get that Chicago monkey off our back in round one, game 7 last season!

  22. Wanda BartonTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:11pm PST

    Been at game 5 winning western conference final last year telling everyone JUICE JUST SCORED AHHHHHHHH WE ARE GOING TO THE FINAL!!! Best moment I my life brought my dad! πŸ™‚

  23. tessaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:20pm PST

    fave moment has to be the beating the blackhawks last yeart

  24. JenniferTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:24pm PST

    Being at Game 7 of this year’s Stanley Cup Finals is the gr greatest thing I have ever experienced as a Canucks or hockey fan. Even though the outcome was unfavourable, just having the chance to be in that environment was once in a lifetime.(But hopefully not). No amount of money could have kept me from being there, and it didn’t.

  25. ChrisTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 12:32pm PST

    watching them win against the hawks

  26. Kate-LynTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:04pm PST

    This is so hard to pick i had lots of favorite moments as a Canuck fan but my favorite would have to be when I got to meet Christian Ehrhoff last season when he played for Vancouver he was so sweet and the rest of the team is amazing !!

  27. ValTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:12pm PST

    Beating the Chicago Blackhawks in last year’s playoffs.

  28. RebeccaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:14pm PST

    Seeing Trevor Linden in person.

  29. ChristineTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:16pm PST

    Being in the streets after the Game 5 win this past year!

  30. YraTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:28pm PST

    Being in downtown Vancouver when Alex Burrows scored the winning goal in OT against the Boston Bruins

  31. KarenTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:33pm PST

    It changes so often – so many great moments mentioned here. I’d have to say, though, that my current favorite moment is just recently, when Cody Hodgson was hurt and helped off the ice by Edler and Salo. They stepped away from the fight that could have erupted in favor of helping their teammate and getting their revenge within the confines of the game. It speaks to the integrity the Canucks play with, and the strong morals the organization fosters – so that’s my current favorite moment!

  32. WendyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:34pm PST

    My favourite moment was meeting Burrows, and Game 7 vs the Chicago Blackhawks.

  33. Alex Ransford (alexlovesburrs)Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:38pm PST

    My favorite moment as a Canuck fan is watching my moms face light up everytime Luongo makes a beautiful save. She’s battled cancer since she was a baby and the Canucks bring happiness into her life. I am glad my mom has found Luongo as a crutch to getting by day after day. Thank you Luo, for making beautiful saves game after game to make my mom happy.

  34. Jane Van DooremalenTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:39pm PST

    Finally beat Chicago in the Playoffs last year. Also Henrik,Ryan, Roberto, Corey winning the indivdual awards.

  35. Kevin WaltonTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:39pm PST

    Favourite moment was being at the game where Linden’s #16 was hoisted to the rafters.

  36. SandeepTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 1:52pm PST

    Alex Burrows OT Game 7 goal vs the Blackhawks to finally beat them

  37. CharleneTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 2:16pm PST

    Winning game of the conference finals 2011. Celebrating with fellow Canucks fans in a bar in nyc.

  38. stephanieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 2:48pm PST

    Watching them go all the way to the finals last year. Yehhhh

  39. Lee RobertsTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 2:53pm PST

    Ive lots of fond memories as a Canuck fan. But the most memorable was when I was about 12 years old and met a young rookies named Stan Smyl. I was so impressed that he was wearing what all my friends were wearing at that time : jeans and a jean jacket. I thought he was so cool! And it also was the start of me wearing #12 in all my sports!

  40. maryTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 2:54pm PST

    beating blackhawks at the playoffs

  41. SalmanTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 3:33pm PST

    Game 7 OT Alex Burrows’ winner against the Blackhawks

  42. Harmen AshleyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 3:37pm PST

    Favorite moment as a Canuck? There’s way too many, How about 94’after game 6 in the Stanley Cup finals and hearing the Linden quote from Jim Robson “”BUT THERE WILL BE A GAME SEVEN…THEY’LL HOPE THAT THEY CAN GET LINDEN PATCHED UP FOR THAT ONE… HE WILL PLAY, YOU KNOW HE’LL PLAY… HE’LL PLAY ON CRUTCHES…HE WILL PLAY, AND HE WILL PLAY AT MADISON SQUARE GARDEN ON TUESDAY NIGHT!!!!!” Or how About The sudden death goal in the playoffs against the Flames with Jovonovski screaming with excitement a few years back? Or just this year everything leading up to the Stanley Cup finals? Every moment watching these boys play on the ice is my favorite. No matter how different the team may be, and whatever players may play for the Canucks, this is the most beautiful team in the NHL. They represent our team with high hopes, dignity and integrity. It’s what we look forward to for the years to come and we will always be here waiting for the day we get to watch this team bring the Stanley Cup home.

  43. BennettTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 3:45pm PST

    Meeting Pavel Bure for the 1st time at a sports store autograph signing…I was able to get Bure to sign his rookie card for me in both his English & Russian versions of his autographs. When the others in line saw this, they asked the same, but the organizer quickly put an end to this double autographing. I like to think mine is an original!

  44. YvonneTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 3:45pm PST

    Bieksa’s goal against SJ Sharks to get into the SCF is an eternal classic

  45. JoshTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 3:57pm PST

    My favorite moment was watching the run to the cup in 94 with my dad when I was 10 years old.

  46. TyesaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 3:58pm PST

    I am a new fan I guess you could say as I have only started watching every game 2 seasons ago. My boyfriend on the other hand is a die hard fan. My best memory doesn’t have to do with any game or player but a christmas gift. Last year I bought him a signed Bure jersey and when I seen the tears in his eyes it gave me the best feeling. I would love to be able to share another magical Canusks moment with him.

  47. ArtTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 4:01pm PST

    Watching the 1994 playoff run!

  48. jeanieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 4:19pm PST

    lots of awesome moment to choose from…current fave moment would have to be beating chicago last season! that was great!!! =D

  49. KatieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 4:24pm PST

    Beating the blackhawks was pretty amazing!

  50. mariaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 4:40pm PST

    My fave moment is when i went to a live game. I have only been a couple of times.

  51. BrittanyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 4:53pm PST

    My fav moment had to be going to my first game, way up in the nosebleeds with a friend who hated hockey. I have never cheered so hard in my life! And now she’s been converted!

  52. NicTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 4:59pm PST

    The picture of Kirk McLean and Trevor Linden in the ’94 cup run.

  53. Kyle MacDonaldTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 5:18pm PST

    My favourite Canucks moment was the feeling of shock following Bieksa’s incredible slap shot winner to move the Canucks into the 2011 Stanley Cup final! I was actually one of the few people that saw him shoot! The confetti that fell from the ceiling, combined with the passion and invigoration that filled the arena that night was something I will never forget. It was a very powerful moment and something that will live on throughout Canucks history!

  54. Darren AlexanderTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:05pm PST

    My Favorite moment happened over three months during are last playoff run. Burrows Goal to beat Chi, Bieska goal to send us to the finals. to many to name

  55. HeidiTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:05pm PST

    Favourite moment… game 2 of Stanley Cup Finals, I was in the fan zone at CBC plaza. My friend was starving and she was really annoyed it went to overtime because she couldn’t get anything to eat. Then Burrows scored, we all jumped up, screaming. Her celebration cheer, “FOOOOOD.”

  56. JULIANATuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:06pm PST

    going downtown for game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals and roaming around the streets high fiving everyone

  57. MarciaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:09pm PST

    Watching Trevor Linden get drafted in 1988, and every time he stepped on the ice!

  58. HarpalTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:10pm PST

    Bieksa’s goal against San Jose in
    double OT at the conference finals.

  59. Kathy KoTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:11pm PST

    My favourite moment was during high school and the `94 Cup Run. After we lost, my friends and I decided to go to the Fan Appreciation. We ran all the way down the ramp and to our seats at BC Place, wildly waved our white towels and screamed with joy.

  60. Zahida JafferTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:12pm PST

    Game 4 of the 2nd round of the 1994 playoffs versus the Dallas Stars. This is the only playoff game I’ve been to. The Canucks won, plus it was part of an epic season in the Canucks’ history.

  61. ChloeTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:13pm PST

    I don’t have a particular favourite moment, but I love every time the Sedin twins make those magical passes on ice (which often lead to goals). I’m a twin myself and wish I had that kind of skill with my twin. Every time I watch them I’m in awe.

  62. TonyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:15pm PST

    Favourite moment(s) – going to a game with my son and watching him mesmerized by the game and asking questions non stop. Reminds me of when I was young and went to games with my Dad.

  63. RachelleTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:18pm PST

    My absolute favourite moment was when I went to a recent Van vs Calgary game (my first game)and proudly represented my Lapierre jersey. All my hopes came true that night…Higgins scored, Bieksa scored, Booth scored and Lapierre got into a very physical confrontation. Literally EVERYTHING I wanted to happen that night. We took the win and I slept great!

  64. SpencerTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:18pm PST

    Beating the Blackhawks in Game 7. John Shorthouse’s “They Slayed the Dragon!” call will forever be ingrained in my head.

  65. AnnieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:27pm PST

    Beating the hawks in game 7 and juice scoring in game 5 vs the sharks!!

  66. PaulaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:29pm PST

    My favorite moment as a Canucks fan was probably Game 7 OT win over Chicago and hearing Shorthouse shout “THEY SLAYED THE DRAGON” And Jim Hughson was saying “Exhale British Columbia, The Canucks are on to Round 2, Nashville is next!” Also, the 2OT winner over the Sharks to send us to the SCF was amazing. Definitely memorable

  67. KinseyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:39pm PST

    My favourite moment is finally going to my first game a couple years ago. It was the last game in the season against the Flames, and we beat them 7-2. I remember Henrik was really close to getting the most points in the league for that season and Bieksa actually getting angry cause they couldn’t score from this one play just to get Henrik the point. I got tickets cause a family member felt pity cause I had never been to a game before as big as a fan as I was lol.

  68. SarahTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:39pm PST

    Taking in the exhilarating atmosphere of downtown Vancouver during the Stanley Cup finals last year. I watched Game 5 on Georgia Street with 3 of my best friends and will never forget it!

  69. AshleyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:41pm PST

    Favorite moment so far has definitely been Round 1, Game 7, Alex Burrows OT winning goal. I literally burst into tears as my family and I jumped around in joy.

  70. KevinTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:41pm PST

    My favorite moment as a Canucks fan was meeting Ryan Kesler.

  71. myraTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:43pm PST

    Burrows scoring in overtime of game 7 of the chicago series in the 2011 playoffs!! But its also closely tied with seeing them at children’s hospital or Canuck place putting smiles on the faces of kids that need them most – love seeing that!!

  72. Prabhjot HunjanTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:45pm PST

    My favourite Canucks moment was going downtown and watching the game. I got to feel the crowds enthusiasm and it was an awesome experience.

  73. JasTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:53pm PST

    watching all the games with friends and family, and the partying downtown during the playoffs!

  74. DebraTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:54pm PST

    Meting members of the Canucks when I volunteered at Canuck Place…the smiles it brought to the children s faces was wonderful πŸ™‚

  75. GinnahTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 7:55pm PST

    My favorite memory is my first game (game 5 against chicago), And remembering that even though we lost the fans were still having fun!

  76. KelseaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 8:09pm PST

    It may not have been the best moment, but being on the other side of the world during round four last June, and having to stay up to watch until 3 am to watch the games – because there was no way I was missing it!

  77. LauraTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 8:10pm PST

    I would DIE to win this prize!!!
    My favourite moment as a Canucks fan is every time that they step on the ice, or put on their gear, or visit the sick kids at the hospital, or get traded from another team. I moved to Vancouver 8 months ago and have cherished every minute I’ve lived here.
    Go Canucks Go!!

  78. eveTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 8:10pm PST

    My favorite moment is going to meet Alex Burrows with one of my best friends and her baby. My friend has proven to be the biggest Burrows fan in the world and to see her actually meet him was magic! She was so comically nervous and buzzing with excitement, a wreck, and I felt exactly the same, maybe even a little emabarssed. But Alex Burrows is so humble and down to earth, shaking his hand calmed me down. It certainly was memorable.

  79. Brent EddyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 8:14pm PST

    When I was young, I had the opportunity to hang out in the Canucks dressing room at Pacific Coluseum with Tiger Williams and Darcy Rota. Very cool for a young kid to see that these great guys were human too

  80. NatalieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 8:37pm PST

    Maybe this brings up bad memories for some, but my favourite moment as Canucks fan was coming downtown the day after the riots and adding my thanks to the Wall at the Bay. Just talking to the countless people adding messages alongside me, and watching people clean up the city that morning…I’ll never forget it. Really wonderful to see the overwhelmingly positive spirit of the people, supporting their team and city in any way they could. It brought the city together. As the Sun headline said, the city bared it’s soul that day.

  81. AlanTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:00pm PST

    My favourite moment was Burrows scoring the overtime goal in Game 7 against the Hawks.

  82. AmandaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:00pm PST

    My favorite moment as a Canucks fan was when I got all dressed up in blue and green and went to one game of each round and ended up on TV AND on the Canucks website!!! πŸ™‚

  83. NatalieTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:12pm PST

    My favourite moment was being at game five of the Stanley Cup finals. It was my first live NHL game and the atmosphere was unbelievable. Complete strangers gave bone-crushing hugs and high gives after Max Lappiere score that goal, and the celebrations continued all the way back home. Skating with members of the team would be such an amazing experience. Skating with such passionate and determined men who give their all would so rewarding and really open your eyes on what chasing your dreams means.

  84. Christopher CoTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:25pm PST

    Campoli trying to clear it Burrows shoots,SCORES!!!!!!!!!!!!

  85. MilecolmTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:30pm PST

    Definitely the Kesler bombs! Yes, the Cup Finals in 94 and 2011 were an amazing thing to watch, but the Kesler bombs were EPIC!

  86. Andrew FarnTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:43pm PST

    My favourite moment was watching Brendan Morrison scoring the game winning goal in triple overtime, a few years ago in game 6 to force a game 7 against the Calgary Flames.

  87. Amy L.Tuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 9:45pm PST

    My favorite moment has got to be when Kevin Bieksa scored the goal to send us to the Stanley Cup finals. No one knew what happened, not even the team. We just knew we were headed to the cup. Bieksa was the only one who spotted the puck. A moment of true disbelief at what just transpired. Tears were shed, hugs were aplenty. I still pinch myself watching the goal on youtube.

  88. LindseyTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 10:11pm PST

    Burrows’ game 7 goal against the Blackhawks this year!

  89. ChristianTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 10:43pm PST

    When the Canucks beat the Blackhawks in game 7 last year! We’ll get em this year again boys!

  90. AnitaTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:34pm PST

    Definately watching Burrows score the game winner in game 7 against the Blackhawks! The celebration on the ice was a moment I will never forget. The celebration by the fans around town was an experience words will not describe. It was a event that gathered strangers together to celebrate a common love we all have – the Canucks!

  91. KenTuesday, December 20th, 2011 — 11:57pm PST

    Too many to choose from, but game 6 of the 1994 Stanley Cup finals still stands out. One of the greatest games I can remember.

  92. JennaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 12:06am PST

    My favorite moment as a Canucks fan would have to be the 2011 playoff run. I really enjoyed watching all the games. Whether it be on television, downtown with thousands of fellow fans, or the opportunity I had to go to one of the games. Seeing the way the entire city of Vancouver, as well as the surrounding cities, all pitched in to help clean up after the riot has to be my absolute most favorite moment as a Canuck fan – It really makes me proud of this city, our team, and the fan base. I am so grateful that I am a fan of this team, and have all these amazing fellow fans to share it with.

  93. Jessica HowittWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 12:08am PST

    My favorite moment as a Canuck fan was screaming and cheering with my friend after Bieksa scored the double overtime goal in game 5 to send the Canucks to the 2011 Stanley Cup Finals. I also liked Kesler’s photo for ESPN magazine.

  94. natalieWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 12:15am PST

    I enjoy watching the playoffs – I am a new fan, so don’t really have one special moment (yet!)

  101. JuliaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:07am PST

    I don’t have any one hockey moment – except that it is something I do with my dad and we love it!

  102. RobWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:16am PST

    A lot of fave Canucks moments, but game 7 of the ’94 finals, with just me and my love watching curled up on the couch was very cool!

  103. RandyWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:21am PST

    Going to my first Canucks’ Game was a big thrill.

  104. TanyaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:37am PST

    I’m a new Canucks fan thanks to my boyfriend, but I love seeing how the team can bring together the whole city.

  105. PatWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:38am PST

    Seeing the awesome work many of the Canucks players do off the ice for initiatives like Canuck Place and Ronald McDonald House!! Would love a chance to skate with them.

  106. Lori-Vancouver BC SuperhostWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 10:28am PST

    My favorite canucks moment was giving my nephew tickets to his 1st Canucks game for his 13th birthday!

  107. Darcy-AirbnbSuperhostWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 10:35am PST

    My favorite Canuck was taking my nephew Matthew to his 1st Canuck game.

  108. VeronicaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 10:36am PST

    Normally I would say watching the ’94 Game 7 from the Pacific Coliseum, but now that my daughter has started playing hockey, I would have to say watching the cup run with her earlier this year is my new favourite moment.

    If we win this contest, it would be her that skates with the Canucks!

  109. VanessaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 11:18am PST

    Watching the Sedin twins work in tandem

  110. TanyaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 12:14pm PST

    My favourite moment as a Canucks fan was when I was at the HP store downtown and randomly won a printer pulled by Trevor Linden! Also my other fav moment as a Canucks fan was watching the games downtown during the playoffs

  111. DerekWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 12:49pm PST

    I was at the Game 7 overtime win vs. Chicago last year. I’ve never heard anything like the mayhem and excitement that ensued!

  119. LorriWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 3:14pm PST

    It’s hard to name one, as there have been so many. Probably beating Chicago in last year’s playoffs was a super high point for me!! WE SLAYED THE DRAGON as Shorty put it!!

  120. Amanda McNallyWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 3:16pm PST

    Taking my 5yr old to the Canucks/Sens game on his 5th birthday. I’m from Ottawa. It was a great night!

  122. DeniseWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:07pm PST

    Have never gone to a Canucks game but would love to. My favorite moment as a fan however, was when my son did a Cops for Cancer Ad with Trevor Linden. That was truly a highlight!

  123. Cari-Ann R.Wednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:10pm PST

    My favorite Canuck moment was when I was 5 years old and my brother’s hockey coach (John Wilde) brought one of his friends (Stan Smyl) to an Atom Minor hockey practice. I was so excited that I ran to open the door that lead to the ice for the team. I was so small that you could not see me throught the window. As the boys pushed open the door I went flying and hit the wall. All I remember is Stan Smyl picking me up and asking my dad if he could take me for a skate around the rink. Of course as soon as he asked that I stopped crying, I was in awe…

    A few years later my brother went to a Stan Smyl training camp. I took the picture of me in Stan Smyl’s arms to have Stan Smyl autograph it and the best part of all he remembered the incident!! This is only one of many memories that I have but by far the best one!! I have been a Canucks Fan for as long as I can remember!! This is our year!

  124. William RobsonWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:38pm PST

    My favourite Canuck moment would have to be game 7 of the stanley cup final last year. We did lose yes, but I have never been more excited about a hockey game ever before.

  125. KellyWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:45pm PST

    Definitely the moment I heard that Trevor Linden was returning to the Canucks!

  126. AnneWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:56pm PST

    My fav moment was when I stepped foot into Canuck Place a couple of years ago, to deliver her gift to Canuck Place. She had asked her friends to make a donation to CP in lieu of a birthday gift. Just knowing that our Canucks does such wonderful work with Canuck Place is enogh for us to cheer on our team.

  127. BonWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:57pm PST

    Hands down- Burrows overtime goal against Chicago playoffs 2011. Sooo exciting!!

  128. AnneWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 4:57pm PST

    Sorry,.i should have said it was my daughter’s birthday gift to Canuck Place.:)

  129. GarretWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 5:05pm PST

    my favorite memory is definatly the 2011 cup run. What a year.

  130. AnneWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 5:19pm PST

    My favourite Canuck moment was when I stepped foot into Canuck Place with my daughter and husband. We were there to deliver my daughter’s gift to Canuck Place (she had asked her friends to make a donation to C.P. as instead of giving her gifts). May daughter is a GREAT fan of the Canucks (she’s turning 16 next week!)

    Knowing that our CANUCKS do such wonderful work with C.P. makes me proud to cheer on our team. The Canucks are such a great example for all of us. I have never been to an actual Canucks game, but it is enough just know that the team consists of amazing people!

  131. Erin SchaffWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 5:28pm PST

    When Vancouver beat Chicago in the 2011 playoffs!!!

  132. ScottWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 5:41pm PST

    Finally got a chance to go to a game at the Arena for the season opener against Pittsburgh this year. Even though we were beaten in the shootout, it was so amazing to get lost in the sea of blue. This city’s fans are awesome.

  133. nabil azabWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 5:58pm PST

    Pavel Bure’s double overtime goal in game seven during the first round of the playoffs in 1994 vs Calgary

  135. CandiceWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 6:33pm PST

    My dad loved hockey and I was able to take him to his first Canucks game before he passed away… That was almost 20 years ago and I remember we had the cheapest seats way up in the nose bleeds .. I was still honored to take him even though he said he was scared of heights and would have rather watched the game on TV … Shucks – Who knew … Love ya dad!!

  136. Candice CWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 6:35pm PST

    My face moment was when Burrows scored the OT winner against the Hawks in game 7. It was a proud moment for me as a cancuks fan. I cheered and screamed my heart out!

  137. MichelleWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:16pm PST

    Going to my first ever game. Canucks vs preds. The debut of the green man!

  138. ShawnWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:47pm PST

    My favourite ‘moment’ is after each Canuck game, when I swap Canuck highlights with my parents who are watching all winter from Pueto Vallarta, Mexico with a pub full of fellow Cdns.

  139. Geoffery KehrigWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 9:55pm PST

  140. GurpreetWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 10:06pm PST

    Burrow’s OT winning goal against the blackhawks in game 7!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  141. Shawn HarksWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 10:52pm PST

    As much as I have so much great moments with the canucks like Bure scoring the over time winner in the playoffs ,Greg Adams getting the overtime winner to advance in the playoffs to the finals or the Canucks fighting to get to the finals last year.I have to say my all time canuck moment was last year,when my 11 year old daughter worked all weekend in a tournament to raise money ,through her tips.She managed to raise $400 dollars ,and instead of spending it on herself she insisted in donateing it to the canucks for kids fund.It made me so proud to be her father and a fan of the canucks ,that tops anything I have seen

  142. CoryWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 11:12pm PST

    My favorite moment has to be when Burrows hit the OT winter against the Blackhawks last post season! also one of my all time favorite moments was when Manny Malhotra returned in game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals!

  143. RebeccaWednesday, December 21st, 2011 — 11:45pm PST

    Going to a playoff game and waving the white towel with thousands of other fans!

    I would have to say the 1994 stanley cup finals!! Me and my siblings made a big huge sign and stood on the street waving it!!

  145. ClairThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 5:08am PST

    My favorite moments are every game watching Canucks #1 fan, my son, watch every Canucks game on TV. He watches and cheers like he’s sitting rink side with other fans. He not only watch but coaches the players too. He only 13, turning 14 on Dec 3O. 5yrs ago we went to Edmonton Mall. He walked into a store selling Edmonton Oilers jersey’s and asked for Vancouver Canucks jersey. Then continued to argue there with staff why Canucks were better then Oilers. Lol

  146. StotesThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 7:02am PST

    When we finally beat the Chicago Blackhawks last year in the Playoffs.

  147. JosieThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 7:15am PST

    I’ve been a fan since I was three, so there’s quite a lot of memories to choose from. But I think I have to put Burr’s game-7 winner against the Hawks last playoffs. I was so completely nervous the entire game and I could not have been more happier nor relieved when Burr snatched that puck out of the air and snapped it into the back of the net!

  148. TeeThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 10:26am PST

    I’m new to Canada but my favorite Canucks moment was on February 28, 2011 whcn we traded for Maxim LaPierre <3

  149. Michelle MThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 10:49am PST

    My favorite moment was watching my husband and daughter enjoying the playoff TOGETHER!!!!

  150. RoThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 11:29am PST

    Watching a playoff game on my cousin’s laptop in a Chinese restaurant where we were celebrating my grandpa’s 91st birthday!

  151. KarenThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 12:13pm PST

    The first time Pavel Bure flew down the ice… he made everyone else look like they were standing still. Still my vote for greatest Canuck ever.

  152. Alex WyderThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 1:49pm PST

    This would be a dream come true for my little brother! Seriously, he’s their biggest fan.

  153. Nicole ShumThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 5:39pm PST

    Watching their 2011 play off run! Especially when bieska shot the winning goal πŸ™‚

  154. KristiThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 8:09pm PST

    When my son got to meet Fin and then ride around on the zamboni. He took his Grandma with him, and judging by the picture they brought home for me, it looks like they had an amazing time. I wish I’d been able to go with them. πŸ˜€

  155. JoanneThursday, December 22nd, 2011 — 8:49pm PST

    Partying and cheering with thousands of other Canuck fans either in pubs, on the street, with my friends, or even in my own living room. Always will be a Canucks fan!

  158. MeganFriday, December 23rd, 2011 — 1:19pm PST

    Among the many fond moments I have had as a Canucks fan was my first ever live hockey game in high school. I had a massive crush on a guy who invited me to the Canucks vs. Wild match for my birthday… The Canucks scored a victory and my crush and I ended up on the JumboTron. Enough to melt any teenaged girl’s heart. πŸ™‚

    My favorite moment as a Canucks fan is watching my five year old nephew put on his goalie pads and jersey before every Canucks game, just in case they need him as the back-up to Schneider! His goal in hid five year old life is to be Roberto Luongo!

  162. Bre NFriday, December 23rd, 2011 — 2:55pm PST

    Favourite moment: Last stanley cup when we scored. I was at a restaurant at the time and one man jumped booth to booth over top of the dividers! no one cared they were all too busy celebrating.

    So many great memories, but in general, watching the 2011 playoff run with my kids, especially my son, who is an AVID fan. Will never forget the Canuck fever in the house!

  167. AmanpreetSaturday, December 24th, 2011 — 7:52pm PST

  169. AvaSunday, December 25th, 2011 — 4:07pm PST

    My favourite moment would have to be just witnessing the Canucks make it to the Stanley Cup finals. Although we didn’t win, I’m happy to be living in a great city with an even greater (and the best) NHL team πŸ˜€

  170. DanikaSunday, December 25th, 2011 — 10:24pm PST

    My favorite moment was when they were doing an interview in the locker room with Schneider and Ryan Kesler bombed the interview by moving in and wearing Schneider’s helmet. I laughed hysterically… It really shows that they have great team spirit and get along…

  175. ShawnnaMonday, December 26th, 2011 — 5:21pm PST

    Beating the blackhawks last year!! Go Canucks Go!!

  176. Julia KruaseMonday, December 26th, 2011 — 9:41pm PST

    When Pavel Bure scored that breakaway goal in the 94 playoffs against the Rangers. I’ll never forget that!

  177. MarianneMonday, December 26th, 2011 — 9:51pm PST

    Not sure how I can pick a fave Canuck moment – there are so many. I guess I will go with Burrows’ overtime goal against Chicago in the playoffs last semester.

  178. Rob HendersonMonday, December 26th, 2011 — 9:52pm PST

    Other than watching the team play live, it would have to be after the games when Kesler photo bombs interviews

  181. DarrenMonday, December 26th, 2011 — 11:29pm PST

    Best moment would have to be game 7 against the Blackhawks last year.

  182. LucyMonday, December 26th, 2011 — 11:48pm PST

    Favourite moment to date is being at game 7 of the Chicago series last season with my boyfriend who is a huge fan. Am entering this contest on his behalf for his birthday which is on the 28th.

  183. JenTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 7:31am PST

    My favourite Canuck moment was the last seasons Stanley Cup run. What an exciting time to be a fan!

  184. AndreaTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 8:07am PST

    My favourite Canuck moment was after we lost the Stanley Cup – I was in Kits and saw an angry fan knock over a newspaper box outside the pub where I had been watching. Then two teenage boys in Canucks jerseys followed behind him and set the box back up! Canuck spirit all the way!

  185. ShaynaTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 8:38am PST

    My favourite Canucks moment wasn’t necessarily a specific canucks game, but it was meeting Kevin Bieksa and Alex Burrows at Phat Yaletown, and getting a hoodie signed for my husband’s 93 year old grandmother, and they were the nicest people. It reminded me, and let me know that the Canucks are regular people with a genuine interest and appreciation for their fans and our awesome city.

  186. lindaTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 10:09am PST

    I’m a newbie to all the Canucks mania. I enjoyed the long drawn, emotional roller-coaster ride to the Stanley Cup finals last year. We watched the second last game downtown with a room full of strangers. It was so nice to hear everyone groan and cheer for the same team. Walking the streets after winning the game was something special too. The passion, joy, pride and friendliness was unbelievable. Honourable mention – Kevin Bieksa’s goal that sent us to the Stanley Cup finals.

  187. Kaelin NelsonTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 10:20am PST

    Meeting my favorite Canuck Kevin Bieksa!!

  188. TiffanyTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 10:44am PST

    Probably the game 7 win against Chicago in last year’s playoffs. What an amazing moment for Canucks fans!

  189. Emily HTuesday, December 27th, 2011 — 12:21pm PST

    Just being downtown and seeing all the support for the Canucks. So amazing.

    ’94 and ’11 Stanley cup runs

  195. Ben GWednesday, December 28th, 2011 — 10:21am PST

    My favourite Canucks memory comes from the 1994 playoff run. I was fortunate to be visiting Toronto with my Mom when I was 9 years old and even more fortunate to be staying in the same hotel as my favourite hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks. I met Pat Quinn, Tim Hunter and Murray Craven. Pat Quinn asked me to hold his notebook while he signed my Canucks flag – what a gentleman and what a Cup Run!

  196. BrendaThursday, December 29th, 2011 — 5:03pm PST

    Favorite Canucks moment has to be taking my son (4 years old at the time) to his very first canucks game. He is now almost 7 and a big Canucks fan and lives, dreams, sleeps hockey πŸ™‚

  197. Mireault, JosephTuesday, January 3rd, 2012 — 11:21am PST

    Favorite moment was when my two boys (6&8)opened up there christmas presents each with a canuks jersey, and draged dad out to the front street to play against our cousins from Calgary and Edmonton.

  198. Taylor CTuesday, January 3rd, 2012 — 5:51pm PST

    Though I have never been to a Canucks before in my life, I do Remember the first time I went to Rogers arena. This October, I convinved my dad to take me to meet some friends at an open practice. I was so stoked! I went there straight from my 7:30 am hockey practice. I’ll never forget the feeling I had as I walked through those doors. My heart was pounding with excitement. My friends had saved me a seat right in the front row, they didnt seem to mind that I smelled like hockey gear that I forgot to air out πŸ˜› It was the first time I had ever sat in a seat there. I was so happy I couldn’t stop smiling. The players came on the ice and started skating laps. I will never forget the 6 seconds I had eye contact with Kevin Bieksa. Yes, I know, I’m a loser but it was a big moment for me!! I was freaking out and my friends looked at me like I was crazy!! After the training camp was over, my friends and I headed out to the back to see the players leaving in their cars. First we saw Henrik Sedin who had Max Lapierre in his car with him. Then we saw Luongo who speeded past a red light. Then we saw Dan hamhuis who flashed us a smile and wave from his Truck. Then, Kevin Bieksa came out. He drove slowly and stopped to sign things for his fans. Unfourtinatley, I had nothing for him to sign so I screamed HI KEVIN and he said hi back. It was probably one of the most amazing days of my life. πŸ™‚
