After a two-month hiatus, we’re back with our latest C4 podcast on Canucks Hockey Blog.
Matt Lee and I tee up another Vancouver Canucks season! With the preseason well under way, we spend some time talking about Jake Virtanen and Brendan Gaunce, who they think will make the opening night roster, and everything else we can think of.
Listen to the podcast on Canucks Hockey Blog here.
This season will be an important one for Linden Vey.
Penciled in as the fourth-line centre for the Canucks heading into the regular season, Vey has a lot to prove after signing a one-year, one million dollar deal with the club this summer. The team had high hopes for him when they traded a second-round pick to the Kings for him in the summer of 2014, and his new contract gives Vey another year to show that he be a vital part of the team.

In the span of one week, the Vancouver Canucks traded away three popular players: defenceman Kevin Bieksa, goalie Eddie Lack, and forward Zack Kassian. In fact, we had this song written for just Bieksa and Lack when we found out that Kassian had been traded…while we were preparing to shoot this video. Thus, we were able to add him albeit at the last minute.
To pay tribute to these three players, we went with a Boyz II Men classic: It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday. This is actually the third Boyz II Men song we’ve covered for the Canucks.
I’m joined by regular collaborators Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. As well, we welcome newlyweds Joseph and Marion San Jose, fresh off of their honeymoon to Rome where they gave a Canucks jersey to Pope Francis (with his name on it). You may have heard about it.
The Vancouver Canucks are back in the NHL playoffs and thus we are thrilled to present our Canucks Playoff Anthem: Something Big. It’s based on the original song by Shawn Mendes.
I’m joined by my regular collaboration partners: the wonderful and talented Marie Hui and Arielle Tuliao. They never cease to amaze me with their skills…in this video check out how they harmonize effortlessly while doing syncopated clapping…it’s NUTS!
We’re excited about a deep playoff run for the Canucks. Something big is happening! Go Canucks Go!

There’s nothing like cheering on the Vancouver Canucks from the comfort of a La-Z-Boy!
Arielle and I had a unique opportunity to put together a music video with the folks at La-Z-Boy just in time for the Canucks’ playoff fun. Thank you to La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries of Vancouver for letting us run around the store and jump on the furniture. We had a blast making this video.
As well, enter a contest to win a $500 gift card to La-Z-Boy exclusively on Vancity Buzz here.
Special thanks to Daniel Roe of Jelly Marketing for producing the video and my brother Jason Imoo for producing the song.
PS: Our actual Vancouver Canucks playoff songs comes out on Wednesday…it’s going to be awesome.
