Vancouver Canucks Preseason Game – Kelowna, BC September 29

It is a good month for Canucks fans in the Okanagan. On September 29 the Vancouver Canucks will take on the Arizona Coyotes in a preseason game in Kelowna at Prospera Place. This is a great opportunity for fans to watch inexpensive, local NHL hockey. This could be Canucks prospect Kole Lind’s last ever game in Kelowna as there is a strong chance of him turning professional this season and playing with Vancouver’s AHL affiliate Utica Comets.

Another former Rocket and Arizona Coyotes first round draft pick Nick Merkley may also be given one last game at Prospera; he turned pro in 2017. The Canucks are visiting Kelowna as part of their plan of growing of game of hockey. Canucks General Manager, Jim Benning, wants to extend the influence of NHL hockey by playing preseason games away from their home arena. Last season, Vancouver made the trip across the Pacific Ocean, playing two games in China. They made appearances in Beijing and Shanghai in front of a growing Chinese fanbase.

Tickets for this event are on sale now, click here for more information.
