“YVR is a world-class airport, distinctly representing British Columbia,” said Michael Doyle, Canucks Sports & Entertainment Vice President & Arena General Manager. “We are very happy to be a part of the YVR family and have the opportunity to showcase our passion for hockey in our community. The Vancouver Canucks Sports Bar & Grill and HMSHost are committed to providing exceptional customer service and a true fan experience with every visit”.

“HMSHost looks forward to welcoming Vancouver travelers and fans to a unique dining experience that centers on the love of hockey,” said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Renee Tedesco. “Guests will feel as if they’re right in the VIP suite of a Canucks game.”

“We are pleased that Canucks Sports and Entertainment are partnering with HMSHost to open the new Vancouver Canucks Sports Bar & Grill here at YVR,” said Tony Gugliotta, Senior Vice President, Marketing and Business Development, Vancouver Airport Authority. “The Vancouver Canucks are British Columbia’s premier sports team and we are thrilled to welcome them to YVR.
