The Calgary Canucks Annual Sportsman’s Dinner and Awards night was held on March 3, 2018 at the Commonwealth Centre. Pat Steinberg of the Fan960 was once again our emcee for the evening and helped kick off an exciting evening.
Our guest speaker for the night was former NHLer Brian Skrudland. Brian spoke about his time in the NHL with the Montreal Canadiens, Calgary Flames, and Florida Panthers. He shared stories about his experience in hockey and about life after hockey. For the remainder of the evening Skrudland spent time with the guests.
The Canucks would like to thank Brian Skrudland and Pat Steinberg for attending the banquet and for supporting the Canucks.
