Vancouver Giants information
If you can't score Canucks tickets, the Western Hockey League's (WHL) Vancouver Giants is a good-value alternative. Games are held at the Pacific Coliseum and often have a buzzy locals feel with lots of families and die-hard fans, all united in awaiting the next big punch-up on the ice.
