The Vancouver Canucks prospects are taking a break from scrimmages in Shawnigan Lake to visit kids in Nanaimo.

Tuesday at 2:30pm they will be visiting the Nanaimo Childhood Development Centre, and Spokesperson Michelle Kocourek says it's a special day.

“They contacted us to see if they could come for a visit and do some things,” said Kocourek.  “They're actually in two places, there's about 30 of them that are here on the Island.  About 16 are coming the Child Development Centre and the other half are going to the Boys and Girls Club and spending some time with them there.”

Kocourek says they have a number of activities planned with the Canucks.

“Building some little mini boats and Silly Boats.  The Teddy Bear's our mascot so we're going to be designing some bears for the back fence for a kind of memorabilia.  Then a hockey scrimmage out in the parking lot, a scavenger hunt, we're having lots of fun here.”

The Canucks prospects will be scrimmaging at Shawnigan Lake until Thursday.
