Vancouver Canucks and UBC Thunderbirds present ‘Canucks on Campus’ to raise funds

Vancouver, BC — On the same night that UBC goalie Matt Hewitt dresses for the Canucks, UBC and the

On November 12th at the Doug Mitchell Thunderbird Sports Centre the Vancouver Canucks will hold a practice for all hockey fans in support of UBC Thunderbirds Hockey. UBC event tickets will also be redeemable for a ticket to a Vancouver Canucks game this season at Rogers Arena.
Following the practice select members of the Canucks and UBC Thunderbirds will participate in a
skills challenge. This event will further the great friendship between these two hockey programs.
“This partnership is providing an incredible opportunity to
raise funds for UBC Thunderbird Hockey and have a very
exciting event on UBC Campus,” says UBC Senior Athletic
