Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks announced today that they will once again hold their Fan Appreciation Night featuring “Jerseys Off Our Backs” on Saturday, April 5th when they play the Calgary Flames at General Motors Place in the team’s last regular season home game. Canucks fans sold out every home game at General Motors Place this season increasing the sell-out streak to 215 consecutive games.
The “Jerseys Off Our Backs” celebration will see Canucks players present their game worn sweaters to 27 lucky fans at the conclusion of the game in an effort to thank them for their support throughout the season. A total of 25 Fans will be chosen through a random draw and escorted onto the ice after the final buzzer sounds. An additional two fans will be pre-selected through the Ultimate Canucks Search and a TELUS Mobile contest.
Fan Appreciation Night also offers Canucks fans the chance to win a number of great prizes at the game. A 2008 ‘Team Canada Edition’ Chevrolet Equinox will be given away as part of the Chevrolet Last Minute of Play Vehicle Giveaway contest. Other prizes include two Sony Bravia 26-inch digital televisions, one LG Shine Mobile phone for the TELUS ‘Fave Fan’, lanyards from TELUS with a coupon for $40 off a Canucks jersey at the Canucks Team Store and travel mugs from Tim Hortons.
