It is the hottest trend on the internet, raising money (or awareness) for ALS by taking part in the #ALSIceBucketChallenge, something that hasn’t escaped the world of the Vancouver Canucks as everyone from Trevor Linden to Ryan Miller (Along with Charlie Sheen, who donated $10,000 in part of Miller challenging Sheen to take part) to Markus Naslund as well as young guns such as Jordan Subban and Hunter Shinkaruk have taken part in the online campaign.

The trend has drawn criticism, but good money is actually being raised as evidenced by Sheen’s $10,000 donation. Reportedly over $15.6 million in donations to the ALS Foundation has been raised over the past three weeks showing that a lot of good is being done due to the viral campaign.

Because you may be interested in watching various Vancouver Canucks players dropping ice water on their heads in the name of charity, we at The Canuck Way have compiled the complete anthology of Vancouver Canucks Ice Bucket Challenges. When more come we will try to post them.

By the way, make sure you donate money to an ALS Foundation near you. After all, that is the whole point of the campaign at the end of the day.
