“It’s a dream come true. I’ve been a Canuck fan since I was three or four years old. I’ve still got my sweaters. They’ve been handed down to my nephews now. For me to be playing in my home town, it’s pretty amazing.”
– Canucks defenseman Brad Lukowich, a 12-year veteran who played junior in Kamloops, B.C., on scoring his first goal in his past 111 NHL games and his first with Vancouver.
