VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Canucks Coaching staff, including Alain Vigneault, Rick Bowness, Newell Brown, Darryl Williams and Roland Melanson, will be involved in a variety of events in November to support BC’s local minor and recreational hockey community. The coaches will host a Q&A session at the Langley Events Centre and practice sessions at Rogers Arena.
