The Seafair Islanders Peewee A3s won’t soon forget Sunday morning.

Prior to the annual Canuck for Kids Funds SuperSkills competition at Rogers Arena, the Seafair team got to meet their NHL heroes in a private autograph session, won by the Islanders.

“The entire Canucks’ team came through the dressing room and were great with the kids,” said Seafair coach Ben Chen.  “Each of the kids had their Canuck paraphernalia to be signed on the bench.  The players came by one at a time and signed each one. It was another amazing experience for the kids.”

Last year, as Atoms, the Islanders appeared on Scotiabank Hockey Tonight.
