-DLC- Posted October 17, 2021 Share Posted October 17, 2021 If this has anything to do with Jim being the Canucks GM, it's sick and twisted. Well it is no matter what the case, but that would just be so far over the line. You're not a fan if you do this stuff, you're a maniac. With that, we don't have the details or know the circumstances so I will reserve further judgement. https://theprovince.com/news/crime/son-of-canucks-gm-jim-benning-attacked-outside-yaletown-nightspot/wcm/6a15208c-101d-46b5-a6e9-223f30407ef3?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1634505021 Son of Canucks GM Jim Benning attacked outside Yaletown nightspot Vancouver police were called to an assault in progress around 2 a.m. outside the Banter Room Author of the article: Scott Brown Publishing date: Oct 17, 2021 • 1 minute ago • 1 minute read • Join the conversation The son of Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning was hospitalized Sunday following an alleged assault outside the Banter Room restaurant in Yaletown. PHOTO BY ARLEN REDEKOP /PNG Article content The son of Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning was hospitalized following an alleged assault outside a Yaletown nightspot early Sunday morning. Danica Benning, the daughter of the Canucks GM, posted on Instagram that her brother was attacked by four men while the two were waiting for an Uber outside the Banter Room at 1039 Mainland Street. “I tried to fight them off my brother and then one of them strangled me and threw me up against the wall,” Danica Benning wrote in her post. “The police were notified but (the four men) ran off immediately. My brother is in the hospital.” Vancouver police spokesperson Tania Visintin confirmed that officers were called to an assault in progress around 2 a.m. in the 1000 block of Mainland Street. “A 25-year-old man had very visible injuries to his face. He declined any assistance from paramedics and told officers he would go to the hospital himself,” said Visintin. Danica Benning has two brothers and didn’t say in her post which one was attacked. However, the age of the victim lines up with the age of her younger brother, Nicholas. Brandon, the older Benning brother, is in his 30s and works as a scout for the Canucks.
