Some people have all the luck.

He didn’t win Tuesday’s world record prize, but someone by the name of Sam Abadian is on an incredible streak of luck nonetheless.

Abadian won the 50/50 draw during Thursday’s Vancouver Canucks game, taking home half of the $110,680 jackpot. Remarkably, this was the second time in 38 days that Abadian held the winning ticket this season, the Canucks confirmed.

The fan also won half of the $70,065 jackpot on October 22. That’s two wins in nine games, which is better than the hockey team has fared of late. The Canucks have just one win in their past 11 games.

The $90,373 in combined winnings for the fan is also tax-free.

Unlike the winner of Tuesday’s big prize, Abadian’s ticket was purchased in-arena.

Thursday’s 50/50 jackpot was the fourth-largest of the season, helped by online sales.

Funds raised from 50/50 raffles support the Canucks for Kids Fund charity, which benefits the Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice, and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
