Less Than 12 Hours Away! Preview: Vancouver Canucks Equipment Sale 2011

Welcome to ProStockNation.com’s exclusive preview of the Vancouver Canucks 2011 Equipment Sale.

Oh how things have changed.  If you have been to the Canucks’ sales in the past you might be thinking how different the pictures below look.  Sales went from being a huge annual 2-day excursion with loads of equipment scattered across the arena concourse to a single day event and now gear has been sold year round at the Canucks Outlet Store halfway across town.

The equipment sale this year will be housed in an area that’s about the same size as the average Downtown Vancouver studio suite.

You will find a wide variety of equipment from current and past seasons.  Contrary to our earlier reports, there will not be new stock brought out each day.  Stock is limited and everything will be on a first come first served basis.  There will be no limits on how much you can buy.  There are different price points for sticks.  These price points will be indicated by lists posted on the wall separated by tape.

Gloves will be scattered in several wire bins as well as on top of the sticks.

In the “goalie corner” you will find brand new and used gear from the likes of Roberto Luongo, Cory Schneider, Jason LaBarbera, Andrew Raycroft, and Michael Houser among others.

Skates are nicely laid out into two main sections… prehistoric (CCM Mustangs, Bauer Vapor 10, older CCM Tacks) and the present (more recent model skates.)

This is an equipment sale first!  Since this is a smaller sale the preparation was more precisely done than the previous ones.  Many of the skates will have a tag indicating the player, model name, and the size.  This will make finding your size much easier than the conventional methods of “guessing and checking” and looking underneath the insole/skate and praying for some sign of marking.

In the “premium corner” you will find game used equipment from the more popular players on the team such as the Henrik and Daniel Sedin, Ryan Kesler, and Alexandre Burrows.

If you go to the sale, please share with us what you picked up!

Canucks 2011 Equipment Sale (Cont’d)

Posted in Equipment Sales, ProStockNation.com Announcements with tags , , , , , , , on June 30, 2011 by prostocknation

As ProStockNation.com was first to report, the Vancouver Canucks Annual Equipment Sale will be held at the Outlet Store on Hastings starting on July 11, 2011.  We are surprised the Canucks have still yet to say anything about this sale online.

At their year-end clearance sale today they handed out flyers with a small advertisement on the back regarding the equipment sale.


There’s no new information other than some vague price points.  Expect the sticks starting at $100 to be at least 4 years old, $100 gloves with no palms left, and the $75 skates to be prehistoric.  There usually isn’t anything good until you spend a little more.

No early entries for Season Ticket Holders or Email List Members have been released yet but it’s safe to say at this point it will be a free for all once the Outlet doors open at 11am Monday morning.
