Canucks host draft party at Rogers Arena on Friday

Jun 17 2016, 10:43 pm

The Vancouver Canucks will be hosting their first-ever Draft Party this Friday.

This event replaces the Summer Summit as the Canucks’ marquee fan event of the summer. Unlike the Summer Summit, this event is open to everyone, not just season ticket holders.
