With the 5th overall pick in the 2017 NHL entry draft, the Vancouver Canucks selected Swedish centreman Elias Pettersson.
The pick may have surprise some Canucks fans who expected the club to select Cody Glass.
However, in this Clay’s Canucks Commentary, I outline 5 reasons why this was a great pick for the Canucks.
On June 12, Canucks president Trevor Linden surprised St. Paul School principal Mrs. Moorehead at a special assembly organized by the outgoing grade 7 class and their teacher Mrs. Espinosa.
As part of the assembly, the talented grade 7 students performed “Trevor”, a parody of Bruno Mars’ hit song “Treasure”.
Kudos to singers Anna, Sophia, Sharlene, and Renai for crushing the song. As well, to Eldric, Matthew, Joshua, and Mr. Kelly for the great instrumentation.
Thanks to Mrs. Dela Rosa for the footage.
Lastly, a big thanks to the Canucks organization, Trevor Linden, and FIN for making the morning so memorable.
Nikolay Goldobin and Jonathan Dahlen are in; Jannik Hansen and Alex Burrows are out.
And our 4th round pick becomes a 1st round pick if the Sharks win the Stanley Cup.
Jim Benning is winning the trade deadline!
Alex Burrows has been traded by the Vancouver Canucks to the Ottawa Senators for prospect Jonathan Dalen – the 42nd overall pick in the NHL Entry Draft.
In this video, I list 3 reasons why I like the trade, as well as why Senators fans should be happy with receiving Alex Burrows.
I wrote a new song for Vancouver Canucks all-star forward Bo Horvat and the team’s creative staff put a video to the song.
Thanks to my brother Jason for producing the track, and to my buds Oggy, Jason, and Matt for doing the background vocals.
Enjoy our parody of Bruno Mars’ “24k Magic”.
