NORTH DELTA — For a young hockey player, few thrills are bigger than standing on the ice with big-league NHLers.

North Delta’s Jacob Zillich did just that on Thursday night (Feb. 18) at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, as the winner of an “Every Kids Dream” contest.

Prior to puck drop, Jacob, 10, the son of Now entertainment editor Tom Zillich, stood alongside Vancouver Canucks goalie Ryan Miller during the national anthems, after skating a few laps around the ice with the rest of team as they prepared to face the Anaheim Ducks.

Below, see video shot by Tom Zillich from behind the Canucks’ net.

The Canucks lost the game 5-2.

The “Every Kids Dream” contest is presented each game by the Canucks in partnerships with Save-On-Foods Fan Zone. Click here for contest details.
