 Reason #3: A Canadian hockey market

Playing hockey in America is incredible but there is something especially alluring about playing hockey in Canada. From the sheer media frenzy to the arena atmosphere at puck drop, it can be an experience like no other.

It can be intimidating from the outside looking in as everyone has an opinion on every aspect of the game, but mostly it is mesmerizing. The fans and media alike are deeply invested in each and every aspect of the Vancouver Canucks all year long. Everyone has an opinion on the season’s outcome and more than willing to share if asked.

Attending a live game is an experience like no other. The lights go down, the arena stands in silently captivated as the anthems begin and before you know it, the puck drops and the entire crowd is cheering (or booing) in unison. Experiencing that intensity from ice level, would be an even more exciting perspective to be a part of as a player.

When the team is winning it’s an unbelievable ride to be on and when they struggle, the city will let them hear all about it, loudly. The fans in this city simply want to be a part of the journey every season, every step of the way.
