A Chilliwack boy won the Boston Pizza Design a Mask contest, and his prize included going on the Vancouver Canucks’ California road trip from March 20 to 22.

Darian Moberly, 9, had his design chosen by the Canucks from thousands of entries, which were submitted to Boston Pizza locations from Jan. 19 to Feb. 28. Darian entered his design at the Boston Pizza location in Abbotsford.

Each Boston Pizza in the Lower Mainland then selected its winning design, based on staff and fan votes, and submitted it to the Canucks.

A judging panel composed of office and coaching staff then chose the grand prize winner.

Darian’s prizes included a meet-and-greet with Canucks goalie Ryan Miller during a private practice on March 13, as well  as the trip for two to California, including accommodation, transportation on a Canucks chartered plane and tickets to the L.A. Kings game.

A presentation to Darian will be made on Thursday, April 9 during the Canucks’ home game against the Arizona Coyotes.

NOTE: The original story stated that Darian was from Abbotsford, as was indicated in a press release to the Abbotsford News. In fact, he is from Chilliwack.
