Vancouver Canucks Song: One Pick Away (Charlie Puth Parody)

As the Canucks’ playoff hopes slip away, I turned to my keyboard for comfort and came up with a brand new parody song.

While I’ve never been part of “Team Tank”, I do indeed realize that the worse the Canucks do in the standings, the greater chance of winning the draft lottery and picking Auston Matthews at number one.

So here’s a song that inspires hope for the future – a future that would be a lot brighter with the best player in the available in this June’s NHL Draft, Auston Matthews.

My 12-year-old son Jacob took a break from his bowling and speed stacking to provide the vocals in this parody of Charlie Puth’s song “One Call Away”.

This original post appears on Vancity Buzz.

In January of this year, Jordyn Leopold (11 year-old daughter of NHL defenceman Jordan Leopold) wrote an impassioned letter to the Minnesota Wild urging them to trade for her father to bring him home to Minnesota.

She said that her dad was lonely and that she was lost without him.

On trade deadline day March 2, young Jordyn got her wish. Her father Jordan Leopold was traded from the Columbus Blue Jackets to the Minnesota Wild for Justin Falk and a 5th round draft pick. Continue reading Dramatic Reading of Jordan Leopold Daughter’s Letter to the Minnesota Wild (VIDEO)
