Performance of the Week: Jannik Hansen

Welcome to this week’s Performance of the Week — the weekly post formerly known as Player of the Week — same general idea, same cool blog, just a slightly different approach. It’s painfully obvious who gets this week’s nod — as if the title wasn’t any indication — but it’s wholeheartedly deserved because it’s not every day you get your first career hat trick, and that’s a cool and neat thing that happened to Jannik Hansen on Sunday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Player of the Week: Daniel Sedin

It’s a bit of a weird week because the Canucks only played twice in the last seven days, and in the last one they played last Friday, they were blown out 5-0 by the worst team in the Western Conference, the Arizona Coyotes. Seriously, the worst. So, unfortunately there isn’t a lot to draw from there, but we’ll always have Daniel Sedin’s glorious winner at 4:05 of overtime on November 11th against the Ottawa Senators.

Player of the Week: Jim Benning

Personally speaking, as a full-fledged Canucks fan since the West Coast Express era, it’s the first time I can recall there ever being so many new additions to the team being such vital parts to the team so early on in the season.  It’s a strange and wondrous feeling, and I feel like this week I should be talking about another new addition to team, albeit in a different fashion — Mr. Jim Benning, ladies and gentleman.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 1 at Kings 5

It was a night of firsts on Saturday night in LA when the Canucks faced the Kings: Marian Gaborik scored his first goal of the season, while Jake Muzzin scored his first goal in 26 games. Jocelyn Aspa recaps the Vancouver Canucks’ 5-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings in your tweets.

Player of the Week: Linden Vey

In 12 games so far this season, Vey’s got 4 goals and 2 assists — for a total of 6 points  — with two of those goals coming in the last week. And, with 4 goals to his name this season, if he were still on the LA Kings, that’d put him as the fourth-leading goal scorer on the team.  So, uh, thanks, LA! (And no, you can’t have him back.)

Player of the Week: Nick Bonino

And okay, sure, the Canucks lost two out of four games last week — they suffered an abysmal 6-3 loss in Dallas; won 4-1 in St. Louis; lost a disastrous 7-3 game against Colorado on Friday evening even though Henrik Sedin scored the game’s first goal ten seconds in; and, lastly, posted a 4-2 win against Washington on Sunday night —  but I digress.   Despite the topsy-turvy week, there’s been some bright spots, which finally brings us to the point of this post: Nick Bonino.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 at Avalanche 7

The Canucks played their third game in four nights on Friday against the Avalanche in Denver, coming off a solid 4-1 win against the St. Louis Blues just the night before. They beat an NHL team not from Alberta – wooooo! Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
