Vancouver Canucks' main training camp opens this weekend at UBC
Hockey season is here again. The Vancouver Canucks' open main camp this weekend at the University of British Columbia.
Veterans check in for physicals on Saturday (September 12) while the group hits the ice for the first time in two sessions on Sunday (September 13). The on-ice workouts are scheduled for 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. All sessions are open to the public free of charge.
This is a great chance not only to get an early glimpse at the Canucks, but also the brand new 7,000-seat Thunderbird Arena which will play host to a number preliminary round hockey games during February's Olympics.
The Canucks released seven players at the completion of prospects camp Friday (September 11), leaving the team with 56 players moving forward to the team's main camp.
The Canucks have not yet released a roster for September 14's pre-season opener against the New York Islanders.
