[Report] Scott Walker named Canucks player development consultant

-Vintage Canuck-

I remember when I was young kid, I was at a Vancouver Grizzles game sitting 1 row behind floor seats. During one of the timeouts, I noticed Scott Walker (who was then a real "Glue guy" on the Canucks) sitting a few seats over. With an anticipatory excitement, I walked over to him with small notepad I had from school with me, and asked him if he was Scott Walker.

With a smile, he answered yes, and asked if I'd like an autograph, since I was holding a pen and a notepad. I was a bit star struck and just nodded rapidly, and he was great about the whole thing. He chuckled, asked my name, and asked if I wanted the guy sitting next to him to autograph the notepad too. I said "yes please" admittedly not knowing who it was, and it turned out to be Esa Tikkanen.

It was my first time meeting a professional athlete, he really made my day, and I'll always cherish that moment.

Welcome back to Vancouver Scott, you were a class act.
