His brother Ozzy Wiesblatt was drafted in the 2020 NHL draft - 1st round by the San Jose Sharks.

 

His other brothers are named Oasiz and Ocean.  All raised by a hearing impaired single mother.

  

Ocean Wiesblatt was the one who was arrested at the Calgary outdoor rink.

https://bc.ctvnews.ca/grand-chief-says-he-s-not-offended-by-canucks-logo-1.5233048

 

Excerpt from the article:

 

'Lynch and his team knew the look would be controversial, and acquired opinions from several First Nations chiefs.

 

“They didn’t have a problem with it, and thought it was too cartoonish to be Indigenous art,” said Lynch from his Vancouver Island home. “We wouldn’t have done it if it was too close to their ceremonial art.”

 

Grand Chief Doug Kelly with the Stó:lō Tribal Council agrees it doesn’t look like First Nations art. He told CTV News he is not offended by the logo because in his opinion, there was no intent by the Canucks to be offensive.

 

“Is racism an issue? Absolutely. Is it something we should work together to eradicate? Absolutely. But am I troubled by the Canucks logo? No way, nope, no way,” said Chief Kelly.'

 

So why is this an issue?

 

It's an issue because a white guy took a potential job from a First Nations individual and the optics look bad because of colonialism. 

It's one of those, "Oh man, another white guy stealing from the Indigenous again?!" moments. People just be looking to be offended.

Mission accomplished! Buy the way all you orca logo lovers if you google search the southern resident killer whales that reside off of our coast the whale is currently on the US endangered species list! Will be proudly wearing this as an alternate third jersey when the pandemic ends and we can finally start going to Canucks games once again! Me being a long time 11 game yearly ice pack holder of the team will be wearing this at Rogers Arena and around town and I'm quite sure I'll get a lot of positive comments regarding the jersey! Being a 'retro' jersey it'd have made sense had they gone with this look as something different and that would sell well. Later haters!

That looks frankly awful and not even a beer league should wear that 

Appreciate your feedback, everyone is human and entitled to an opinion so I respect yours, thx. Don't comprehend the 'beer league' theory behind your thinking?!?! Or it is too cartoon looking perhaps? The Penguins and the Ducks ones are just as cartoonish and the Islanders had a fisherman on their jersey at one time. Having worn it while out grocery shopping at the Burnaby Cotsco yesterday I had a lot of folks compliment me on the jersey saying they despised the 'regional orca whale logo" and thought this had been a good idea had the team done something different like a Johnny Canuck jersey. Being a 'retro' jersey this is what they should have considered. The retro they did with the orca makes it look like a sprite can jersey! Putting a Johnny Canuck logo on it had made more sense but seeing Aquaman loves his whale logo nothing is gonna change anytime soon. As well the southern resident killer whale is on the US endangered species list and can possibly become extinct one day soon.

Ducks Penguins and fisherman jerseys are all terrible, not the company I want our jerseys to join wadr. 
 

On top of that the endless whining ranting and asshattery by @Tiger-Hearted has honestly made me never want Johnny Canuck on any official Canuck branding at any point frankly. 
 

Leave that garbage logo in the 50’s where it belongs.

The current logo they currently have is just as ridiculous. Looks like a Hanna Barbera cartoon character as well. A constipated orca whale breaking through a sheet of ice! SMH! Even had the team gone with a retro with this logo on it and had worn it as an alternate I'd have no issues with it. Team should have done something different especially for their 50th anniversary. I'll keep on proudly wearing and buying the Johnny Canuck merchandise and will proudly wear my jersey at future Canucks home games once we fans are allowed back in to Rogers, and receive a lot of positive comments on the jersey, cheers haters!

Guess it's quite ironic that the team went WINLESS in the new jersey, lol! And they even had a contest that they were going to be giving away a free jersey for every goal they scored but they didn't even score lmao! You see not rightfully putting a Johnny Canuck logo on the new retros cursed the team! I rest my case, later haters! Lol! I'll be back in like 3 to 6 months to read your vitriol comments back, cheers lol! The lemon was appropriate of the teams play while donning that jersey!

Blaming a logo is absolutely stupid at best. And celebrating the team going winless is pathetic as a “fan”

The reverse retros are an obvious cash grab and most are worse than ours.  Toronto's is hideous with how hard it is to simply read the numbers.  Obvious troll attempt.

Comes out of the woodwork with tiger-hearted to cry about the orca yet again. Both obvious trolls at this point.

It does kinda suck for whomever in marketing was hoping our last RR jersey home stand, hoping it was going to be a black Friday like flurry of sales.  And the team %$#& the bed.

 

Because I must admit, visually, they have grown on me.  Better than most of the other RR jerseys around the league. I really love how the green is more prominent . Love it on the shoulders instead of white or blue. With simple uniform white stripes. If it wasn't for the Sprite fade, it would actually be quite a conservative looking jersey. And the fade is quite subtle, especially from a TV vantage point.
