Vancouver Canucks Superskills 2011

I went to the Canucks Superskills last week. The Vancouver Canucks hold this event every year to raise funds for the Canucks for Kids Fund, which I've supported by volunteering for the 50/50 Program while I was in school. The money goes towards a hospice that provides child-focused care for children with life-threatening illnesses, so the next time you're at a game, make sure you buy a 50/50 raffle ticket!

The Superskills had different skill categories:

- 3 on 3 warmup game (Green team wins)
- Fastest Skater (Mason Raymond)
- Shooting Accuracy (Alex Burrows)
- Puck Control (Both teams tied)
- Hardest Slap Shot (Sami Salo)
- Power Play (Blue team wins)
- Breakaway Relay (Green team wins)

I had a lot of fun and really enjoyed watching the Vancouver Canucks in a more relaxed setting! The team members brought out their own wives and children along too, and the kids were adorable! Here are some pictures from the event:
