Bur14Kes17 Posted January 19, 2017 Share Posted January 19, 2017 I thought perhaps because Henrik actually confirmed this himself it might be worthy of it's own thread to see if we as fans can't help to make his request happen. Hank already knows how he wants to celebrate his 1000 points on the occasion and I think as fans we owe that to him! Robthehockeyguy somehow got it out of him which is impressive since the Sedins aren't known for ever talking about themselves. Henrik wants a Viking Clap for his 1000 pts!!! For those of you who aren't familiar with the Viking Clap. It was started by the Icelandic soccer team at the Euro Cup this past summer and has spread everywhere since. Obviously with Henrik and Daniels love for soccer, they've paid attention and love it as do most people. Other teams and countries have adopted the Viking Clap as a way to celebrate a victory but to my knowledge, no hockey team has ever used it. Perhaps in Europe, but the Canucks would be the first to do it in the NHL and this could become a hockey tradition that is entirely unique and was started in Vancouver. Roger Nielson started the towel waving in Vancouver which has spread across the NHL, Vancouvers Viking Clap could be next. After Henriks next point, have Fin come out on the ice with his drum to lead the Clap along with Henrik. Rogers arena would go insane and for all intents and purposes, it might be the best rogers arena moment in a long time and a fitting tribute to a life long Swedish Canuck. the best thing that I can think of would be to just continually keep trying to contact the Canucks, media members or players to get the message across. The best avenue might be Twitter, but try Instagram, Facebook, or email them directly. I've been tweeting Ben Kuzma, The Stanchion, Ian Macintyre, Harrison Mooney, Pass it to Bulis, and I can't remember who else, but the more people who do this can help get the message main stream! I'm looking around on the website but does anyone know if there a phone number we could call to try and get this straight to the Canucks? Edit and Update!! Pass it To Bulis retweeted it out and another fan tagged Ryan Nichols who is the head director of Canucks Media and Entertainment and i got a response below! Edit and Update again! Ryan Nichols Head Director of Canucks Media and Entertainment is now pumping the Viking Clap on Twitter!! here's a video in case you haven't seen it Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
