Starting tomorrow (Feb. 25) the Abbotsford Canucks will have the potential to play in front of a full house.

It’s the first time in 2022 that the American Hockey League team has a home game with the capacity restrictions lifted by the provincial government.

The club has only had a total of six out of 22 home games with the ability to play to a 100 per cent capacity at the Abbotsford Centre.

The team has averaged a total of 3,811 fans per game for the 2021-22 season, which is good for 20th in the 31-team AHL.

The Canucks host the Stockton Heat tomorrow and Sunday (Feb. 27) and the Heat are the top team in the Pacific Division with a record of 29-8-3-1 and a point percentage of .756. Stockton enters the game on a three game winning streak, while the Canucks have won six of their last seven games.

Puck drop is 7 p.m. tomorrow and 4 p.m. on Sunday.
