Vancouver Canucks Hockey in 2022

Vancouver Canucks

The Vancouver Canucks are the professional NHL ice hockey team that plays home games at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Below is their 2022 to 2023 season schedule.

The 2022-23 season is a regular 82-game schedule for each team. It began in October and like last season, fans are back in the stands.

 

Canucks Ice Hockey Team

Part of the Western Conference of the NHL, the Canucks play ice hockey at Rogers Arena. Tickets range from about $55 up to hundreds of dollars. If you want to see great ice hockey, then Rogers Arena during a Canucks game is the place to be.

During the beginning of 2021-22 season, COVID-19 vaccine passports and photo identification were required. Fans were also asked to wear masks during games (except while eating and drinking). These safety precautions were all lifted in March of 2022, meaning that things are back to normal for the 2022-23 season.

Canucks 2020-21 Season Summary

The 2020-21 season has been miserable for both the Canucks and their fans. Coming off a surprising playoff run last year, many expected the team to take another step. Those plans were unfortunately derailed by a slew of internal challenges and the COVID outbreak. 

The Canucks had many vital players become unrestricted free agents before the start of the 2020/21 season. That included goalie Jacob Markstrom (2020’s team MVP) and Tyler Toffoli. Although the team wanted to keep both players, they decided to sign with other Canadian clubs instead.

Thatcher Demko has thankfully been a revelation in 2021 to replace Markstrom in net, but Toffoli’s absence has been greatly felt. The Canucks decided to overpay Jake Virtanen and Tanner Pearson to try and replace Toffoli and neither has come close to doing so. 

The controversy surrounding the Canucks led to them underperforming on the ice. And just when they were starting to turn things around, a COVID outbreak happened. Almost the entire team contracted the virus and many players passed it on to their families too. It was the most serious COVID outbreak that any North American sports team has had to deal with since the start of the pandemic.

To make things worse, the NHL decided that the Canucks needed to play all their remaining games for revenue purposes even after many of their matches were cancelled due to COVID. This meant that the team has had a compressed schedule in an already shortened season.

The Canucks have unsurprisingly experienced an uptick in injuries and struggled after returning to the ice since many players are still feeling the effects of the virus. 

It’s safe to say that this has been a lost season for the Canucks, and we can only hope for a bounce back next year.

 

Canucks 2021-22 Season Update

After a disappointing 2020-21 season, the Canucks made a number of bold offseason moves. On paper, the team looked much improved and many fans expected them to return to the playoffs.

Unfortunately, the on-ice product told a different story. Less than a third of the way into the season, the Canucks only had 8 wins in 25 games and sat at the bottom of the Pacific Division standings. As a result, former head coach Travis Green was replaced by Bruce Boudreau and General Manager Jim Benning was replaced by Jim Rutherford too.

The upheaval to the team’s coaching staff and management group revitalized the players, as the Canucks then went on their longest winning streak of the season. However, their poor start means that making the playoffs is still going to prove to be a massive challenge, but there’s no denying that the team is heading in a new and exciting direction.

 

Other Information

Vancouver’s other main hockey team is the Vancouver Giants, who are in a lower league than the Canucks. They play at the Langley Events Centre and their games are also exciting to watch, and cheaper.
