Morning Skate With Markus
Click here for the Audio Clips
Today's practice at 8-Rinks not only brought a large group of fans to Burnaby, but fulfilled a well-deserved wish of one very special fan. Georgious Bourodemos, was all smiles as he had the opportunity to meet and skate with his hero, Markus Naslund which was facilitated by the Children's Wish Foundation of Canada and the Vancouver Canucks.
Georgious Bourodemos is an energetic and well spoken little boy that has been battling limphoblastic leukemia the last four years. Georgious had a great skate with Markus, and handled the puck very well as they did a bit of passing at center ice.
Following practice the team chatted with the media about their only game this season vs. the Montreal Canadiens and their rather lengthy up-coming road trip. Check out today's audio clips!
