Canucks pre-season China series part of NHL's international push

When Leo Pan read his beloved Vancouver Canucks were coming to Shanghai, he couldn't contain his excitement.

"Where do I get tickets? And when are they released?" he remembered thinking.

Pan was born in China but came to B.C. in 2000. Within a year, he'd fallen in love with hockey and the Canucks "West Coast Express" team that featured Markus Naslund, Brendan Morrison and Todd Bertuzzi.

He returned to China in 2014 and will be among the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai on Thursday, when the Canucks take on the Los Angeles Kings in the NHL's Chinese debut.
