New Vancouver Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins will run some of his first practices with the team in Whistler this fall, as the Canucks have announced they will hold training camp activities in the resort as they prepare for the 2014-15 season.
The Canucks revealed last week that they'll be taking over the ice at Meadow Park Sports Centre from Sept. 19 to 22. No schedule has been released yet, but all practice sessions will be open to the public and free to watch.
The Canucks traditionally choose a B.C. community outside the Lower Mainland to do some of their preseason workouts. The team last brought its training camp to Whistler in 2008, spending two days on the Meadow Park rink.
The resort has been a destination for other NHL teams during past seasons as well. The St. Louis Blues were the last to visit, stopping in Whistler in March of 2013. The Dallas Stars and Philadelphia Flyers are among other franchises that have skated and done team-building activities in town.
