After an embarrassing season in which the Vancouver Canucks missed the playoffs for the first time since 2007, the team shed general manager Jim Gillis and head coach John Tortorella and brought on Jim Benning and Willie Desjardins to replace them. The early results have been stellar; Desjardins has led the Canucks to a red hot 16-5 start and the Sedin brothers, both of whom put up uncharacteristically mediocre stats last season, are back performing at a point-per-game clip. They’re joined up front by Radim Vrbata, who replaces Ryan Kesler as the Sedin’s number one target and primary goal scorer. So far, Vrbata has netted 10 goals, including two game winners.
Overall, the Canucks are sixth in the league in both total shots on goal and shooting percentage; they’ve scored a healthy 65 goals in 22 games. Below are the Canucks’ ticket prices for the team’s remaining home games throughout the 2014 holiday season.
