In the fight against COVID-19, the province’s top doctor has done pretty great as our first line of defence; so it’s only natural she be added to the Canucks’ playoff t-shirts.
Vancouver’s NHL team recently released the special edition tee, just in time to celebrate their entry into the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs – and this one has a very welcome addition.
Dr. Henry’s name resides alongside some of the Canucks greats – their six best players on the team, to be exact.
“Dr. Bonnie” has been added to the shirt, which also contains Cap (Bo Horvat), Marky (Jacob Markstrom), Petey (Elias Pettersson), Millsy (JT Miller), Huggy Bear (Quinn Hughes), and Boes (Brock Boeser).
Dr. Henry did give the team her okay to be added to the shirt, which raises money for charity with each purchase.
The t-shirt is available for $28 online, with all proceeds benefiting the Canucks for Kids Fund COVID-19 relief efforts.
The Canucks’ postseason slogan happens to be “We Are All One Team”, which makes Bonnie’s addition to the new gear even more appropriate during the current times.
Vancouver secured a playoff spot last week following their overtime defeat against the Minnesota Wild, and will begin their first round fight for the cup against the St. Louis Blues on Wednesday.
