This is the fourth annual Lunar New Year game. As in past years, the Canucks will be auctioning jerseys worn by players after the game on Vanbase.ca. The limited-edition jerseys are the most popular yet, thanks to Lai’s design, so expect winning bids to be expensive. The Lunar New Year Merchandise Collection is available online at Vanbase.ca, as well as in the Canucks Team Store. A portion of the proceeds from sales will be donated to Elimin8Hate, an advocacy arm of the Vancouver Asian Film Festival, with the goal of “educating, amplifying and celebrating Lunar New Year with the community.”
#Canucks Lunar New Year jerseys are amazing, but this T-shirt is badass. pic.twitter.com/EyXiHtUXVu Doing this tomorrow. Not in this exact cheongsam, but in a cheongsam nonetheless. Happy early #LunarNewYear to all #canucks fans! pic.twitter.com/pFrAZylaQk
Beloved local anthem singer Marie Hui will sing “O Canada” tonight while wearing a cheongsam. The entire evening will feature Lunar New Year traditions and imagery, as well as cultural music and special performances, the Canucks said. — Marie Hui (@mariehui) January 24, 2022
Get merchandising while you can as many items are already sold out. Only sizes XXL and XXXL are currently available online for t-shirts and hoodies, while all hats are sold out. Lunar New Year pucks, mugs, keychains, pins and decals are still available. — Rob Williams (@RobTheHockeyGuy) January 25, 2022
Other fun things planned tonight: The Canucks also announced that they will be donating $20,000 to the Vancouver Chinatown Foundation charity on behalf of the Canucks for Kids Fund.
