Canucks alumni score for Nanaimo food bank

Hockey 4 Food charity game was held Sunday at Frank Crane Arena

Vancouver Canucks playoff heroes from the past showed they can still skate, shoot and score.

Vancouver Canucks Alumni and a Loaves and Fishes team played hockey for a good cause on Sunday at the Hockey 4 Food charity game at Frank Crane Arena.

The Canucks alumni lineup featured several players from the 1994 team that made it to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals, including Kirk McLean, Jyrki Lumme, Cliff Ronning and Dave Babych. Some of the other Canucks alumni playing in Sunday’s game in Nanaimo were Thomas Gradin and Chris Higgins.

During the first intermission, the Nanaimo Poison Ivy girls’ team took to the ice all at once and defeated the Canucks alumni by an announced score of 42-0.

Hockey 4 Food benefited the Loaves and Fishes Community Food Bank.
