The wait is finally over! The Calgary Canucks have returned home to Ken Bracko Arena at Max Bell Centre! Join us as we recap December 2021 with the Canucks going 1-7-1.
December 3rd vs Okotoks Oilers
The Canucks opened December by hosting the Okotoks Oilers at Henry Viney Arena. The Oilers got the opening goal in the first period, Caden Stenke then tied the game at 1-1 with a powerplay goal in the second. The Canucks took their first lead of the game with another powerplay goal from Justin Barker at 49 seconds into the third period. The Oilers tied the game 5 minutes later to make it 2-2. With time ticking down, Matthew Brunton would break the tie with nine seconds left for the game-winner.
December 4th at Okotoks Oilers
The second meeting in as many nights saw the Oilers host the Canucks. The Oilers would get the scoring started, but saw the Canucks come out of the opening period winning 2-1, with goals from Matthew Brunton and Daxon Budd. The Oilers would score two powerplay goals to regain the lead before Dylan Clark found the back of the net with under a minute in regulation. The Canucks walked out of Okotoks with a point after the Oilers took this game 3-2 with 50 seconds remaining in Overtime.
December 7th vs Drumheller Dragons
Canucks found themselves down 3-1 after one period of play at Henry Viney Arena against the Drumheller Dragons. Canucks picked up a third-period powerplay goal from Dylan Clark, but that would prove little too late as the Dragons took this contest, 5-2.
December 10th at Grande Prairie Storm
The Canucks would hit the road for three games over three nights in the North Division, with the first stop in Grande Prairie. The Storm would take this meeting 4-1, with Dylan Clark scoring the lone Canucks goal on the powerplay.
December 11th at Whitecourt Wolverines
Night two saw a special team’s battle between the Canucks and the Wolverines, seeing no score in the first with the team’s trading chances on the man advantage. Whitecourt scored on powerplay in the second, and again on the powerplay at the midway point of the third. Dylan Clark would once again score on the powerplay in back-to-back nights responding just over two minutes later, but the Wolverines would hold on for the 2-1 win. Ian Mills had a busy night stopping 41 of 43 shots.
December 12th at Drayton Valley Thunder
After one period of play, the Thunder were up 2-1 over the Canucks with a goal from Dylan Clark. Drayton Valley scored early in the second to take a 3-1 before Calgary stormed back to tie it late in the period from Matt Corbet and Matthew Brunton. The Thunder would break that tie with 36 seconds to play in the period. Drayton Valley would take this game 6-3, adding two more goals in the final frame.
December 17th at Canmore Eagles
Easton Inglis would start the scoring for the Canucks at the Canmore Recreation Center but would find themselves down 4-2 after one. The Eagles would add two more goals for a 6-2 win. Clark would score in his eighth straight game for the other Canucks goal.
December 18th vs Canmore Eagles
The next night the Eagles would come to Calgary for the last game at Henry Viney Arena. Leading the Canucks 2-0 with under five to play in the second, Justin Barker cut the lead in half. Canmore scored on the powerplay to extend to a 3-1 lead in the opening five minutes of the third period. Dylan Clark scored yet again in his ninth game in a row with under a minute left, but the Canucks would fall short to the Eagles 3-2.
December 31st vs Okotoks Oilers
Not the return to Ken Bracko Arena the Canucks were looking for as the Okotoks Oilers took a big 10-0 win on the road.
