The B.C. government has given the Vancouver Canucks the green light to have full capacity, the final approval needed for the NHL to have all seats available across the league.

The lifting of indoor capacity limits for B.C. event venues during the COVID-19 pandemic on Oct. 25 comes one day before the Canucks' home opener against the Minnesota Wild.
Previously, indoor event venues in B.C. could have only 50 per cent capacity.
Proof of full vaccination will be required for entry into Rogers Arena for those 12 and older.
While all provincial and state governments have cleared the way for capacity crowds, most of the Canadian teams have struggled to attract sellout crowds early in the season.
The Toronto Maple Leafs, normally a near lock for capacity crowds, have been short of a sellout for each of their three home games this season.
