Abbotsford Canucks News Release

Vancouver, B.C. - With the team's regular season home schedule coming to a close and a playoff spot secured, the Abbotsford Canucks are taking the opportunity to recognize individuals who make a difference in their community. Today, the Abbotsford Canucks are proud to announce further details regarding BCLC Community Heroes Night on Saturday, April 6th as the team hosts the Coachella Valley Firebirds.

BCLC Community Heroes Night is dedicated to those individuals who positively impact the lives of others, and whose actions further contribute to the betterment of our community. The Canucks take pride in celebrating these local heroes.

"Community heroes are among those who represent the best of our society, especially here in the Fraser Valley," said Rick Comeau, General Manager, Abbotsford Centre.
