Guess what, Canucks fans? You aren’t alone in celebrating their big win against the San Jose Sharks last night. It just so happens that the game featured a dash of English royalty, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in attendance.
On Monday, November 20th, Prince Harry participated in the ceremonial puck drop in celebration of the Invictus Games coming to Vancouver and Whistler in February of 2025, according to the Vancouver Canucks.
The Invictus Games are a series of multi-sport events supporting the recovery of wounded, injured, and sick military veterans from across the world, an organization founded by Prince Harry himself.

The Canucks have blown their competition out of the water so far this season, and we can’t help but think that the presence of two royals helped put a little extra pep in their step last night.
So there you have it, NHL fans. How do you think the puck drop went?
