The Vancouver Canucks are first in the Pacific Division and hockey fever is coming back to the Lower Mainland.
After years of being in the NHL’s basement, it looks like the Canucks are heading back to the NHL playoffs. Fielding a competitive team is what Vancouverites have been waiting for since 2015.
Sat Shah from Sportsnet 650 described Vancouver as a fickle hockey market. When the team is winning the city see’s a notable increase in supporters.
A Burnaby located sports store has seen a massive rise in the number of sales of Canucks related products. With transcending level talents like Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes merchandise is flying off the shelves.
“I can say that jersey sales for this store is up a good 50-100%. When the Canucks were at the bottom of the standings and not playing an entertaining style of play, it’s reflective in the bottom line.”
