Could the flying skate come back?

The flying skate jersey is loved by Canucks fans and it looks like it could potentially come back this season.

Thatcher Demko was seen wearing retro gear during Monday’s practice.

According to Drance, it looks like the flying skate could come back in 2022.

Horvat is a big fan of the skate.

“I love those. Love the skate. Loved his gear too. Thatch said it’s a mock-up of Kirk McLean’s, an exact replica of his gear,” he said per Drance.

Rob Williams of Daily Hive wrote about the skate potentially coming back in October.
