Business of Hockey


The Vancouver Canucks are proud to launch a brand-new in school program for Grades 11 and 12 students: Business of Hockey. This course covers the business side of professional hockey, engaging firstly in a historical look at how the game of hockey turned into a business venture all the way to present times where labour disputes and staffing issues affect all professional hockey teams. The course takes a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to run a professional hockey team. The various departments within the hockey organization are discussed in detail and many important roles within each department are profiled.

The Business of Hockey is currently being piloted in schools for the 2012.13 season. If you are a teacher interested in registering for the program for the 2013.14 season, please contact us at
