There has been plenty of praise for the Vancouver Canucks this year, but who has stuck out as this hockey club’s unsung hero of the 2019-20 campaign?

Right now, with the coronavirus having everyone running rapidly, there seem to be a lot more questions than answers when it comes to the Vancouver Canucks and the rest of the National Hockey League. No doubt, it’ll be a while until we hear anything concrete moving forward about the 2019-20 season, but if 69 Canucks games are all we get this year, it sure makes you wonder who would walk away with a good haul of team awards.

One award that might be tougher to shell out than the rest would have to be the Canucks’ unsung hero award. There have definitely been a few heroes that have been glorified with good reason all year, but who has stepped up this year without enough gratification? Vancouver has been a bubble team all along, and without an unsung hero, there would be no playoff games for the Canucks. So who is it? I’ve compiled a list of three choices, three honourable candidates. Let’s take a look.
