“To all the doctors and nurses that are working so hard to help people right now, you are truly our heroes. We are so grateful,” said Henrik Sedin. “Stay positive and hang in there. We are at home thinking of you every day. Thank you.”

The Canucks are also encouraging fans to take part in the nightly 7 pm applause, which has broken out on balconies all over Vancouver in salute of healthcare workers.
