The boys will be back in town.
The Vancouver Canucks announced Thursday they'll hold training camp here in Whistler at the Meadow Park Sports Centre from Sept. 22 to 26. On-ice sessions begin the following day and will be open to the public.
According to a release on the team website, more information, including rosters, schedules and other events will be released at a later date.
The Canucks, who finished second-last in the Pacific Division last season with 75 points, last held training camp here in 2014 before preparing for the campaign in Prince George last season.
Vancouver has already made an offseason splash, though, adding former Boston sniper Loui Eriksson in free agency and trading for steady Florida defenceman Erik Gudbrandson. As well, the Canucks drafted defenceman Olli Juolevi with the fifth-overall selection.
