Members of the Vancouver Canucks and the Los Angeles Kings are getting a once in a lifetime experience in China right now.

The two teams arrived earlier this week and played the first of two games in Shanghai on Thursday night.


Picture perfect. The first #Canucks practice in Shanghai is in the books.

The two teams will play one more time before heading back to North America, only the second game will be played in Beijing on Saturday.

With both sides getting a day off on Friday, the two sides took full advantage of their off-day and decided to do some sightseeing, which included a trip to the Great Wall of China.


The Great Wall was pretty ... great 👀
