No Need to Worry, the Vancouver Canucks Are Allowed to Have Sex

April 16, 2010

Much like boxers before a big fight or Australian cab drivers during the busy tourist season, many hockey players are discouraged from having sex during the most important time of their year. Fortunately for the Vancouver Canucks, though, their “liberal” coach is totally cool with his players relieving a little tension on game night.

At a press conference attended by dozens of Canadian media members and one Los Angeles-based writer who was on vacation and thought he’d stop by, Canucks Head Coach Alain Vigneault told reporters that he doesn’t want to police the sex lives of his players.

"As far as the sex goes, that's none of my business, they can do what they want. I like to have a lot of control but [not] that part there," said Vigneault. “The playoffs can be more draining, though, so you have to take in more food and fluids to recuperate after games.”

Does this mean he thinks Henrik Sedin should be “receiving fluids” during sex?

Before you laugh, it’s important to note that Vancouver took an early 1-0 series lead after an overtime victory over the Los Angeles Kings last night. It appears that their army-like “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy is working.
