It’s finally time for us to scratch that sports itch. The first of many upcoming Vancouver Canucks  games is going to be taking place this month and just because we can’t go sit in the sands doesn’t mean we can’t go still head down to the arena. The Rogers Arena Sportsbar will actually be playing the game live so make your reservation while you can. 

Hockey fans collectively grieved when the NHL announced they would be suspending all games for the next foreseeable future.

While we were able to stay updated on all things hockey thanks to ongoing beef and Instagram videos of the players entertaining themselves in self-isolation, we are ready for more.

The official Vancouver Canucks schedule posted on the NHL’s website reads that on Wednesday, July 29, the first of many exhibition games will be taking place. 

At 7:30 p.m., the team will be taking on the Winnipeg Jets. 

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to sit in the stands but that doesn’t mean we can’t have a couple of beers and cheer on our home team. 

The Rogers Arena Sportsbar will be hosting a viewing party for the game on Wednesday, July 29.

It’s time to dust off that classic blue and white jersey of yours. Canada’s favourite pastime is back in action. 

This game is a highly anticipated event so the bar recommends reserving a table to secure your spot.  

This can be easily done by visiting the bar's website and booking you and your party's spot. 

Doors to the bar will open one hour before puck drop.

Along with providing fans with food and drinks, there'll also be an in-house DJ, prizes, and appearances from the team's mascot and alumni. 

The bar plans on having a viewing party for every game so if you can’t make it to this one, no worries. 

The bar's website reads that “all mandated safety measures” will be in place including modified seating arrangements.

But it's not just the Vancouver Canucks that will be hitting the ice this month. 

The Edmonton Oilers will be taking on the Calgary Flames in the ultimate Alberta face-off on Tuesday, July 28. 

The last time these two teams played against one another was on Saturday, February 1. 

Thankfully there are more playoff games scheduled that will be taking place in August. 

Following the Cancucks game on Wednesday, fans will have another opportunity to watch their favourite team on Sunday, August 2 while they take on the Minnesota Wild. 

During that same week, the players will be busy with three additional games including one on Tuesday, August 4, Thursday, August 6 and Frida, August 7. 

Looks like we won't have to retire our jerseys for a while.
