(AWAY, April 6th)
Leading scorer: Taylor Hall (25 goals, 61 points)
Keys to the game:
- An Emotional Must Win on a Finale
- Check Out Nail Yakupov
- Goodbyes to you draftists!
The season finale comes in the form of a good ol’ Northwest Division showdown between Connor McDavid‘s Edmonton Oilers and the Canucks.
The night will be an emotional one. You will have players like Matt Bartkowski and Yannick Weber playing the last game as a Canuck. Probably. You have players like Emerson Etem, Linden Vey, and Markus Granlund who all enter the offseason full of hopes of returning.

The team awards will be announced and… right. Did I just forget about Dan Hamhuis? I think there will be a few tears to be shed on closing night. The resilience of the man and the many others who suffered big injuries, truly admirable.
But on that note, there are pieces that could come to Vancouver in the offseason, including forward Nail Yakupov. The former first-overall pick has fallen out of favour with Edmonton, looking to restart his career in a new city. Benning’s thing, right? Check him out.
And finally, to all you draftists out there. IT IS OVER! THE CANUCKS CANNOT TANK ANYMORE SO JUST SHUSH UP AND ENJOY THE LAST CANUCKS GAME OF THIS SEASON MADE MORE MISERABLE BY YOU. THANK YOU.
