  • Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis still working on approach

    Vancouver Sun "There was a time, even after he made the National Hockey League, when cerebral Dan Hamhuis regularly displayed his rock-em-sock-em side. He grew up in Smithers as a shift disturber, a defenceman who hit every player he could in minor hockey. He brought that physical game to the Western Hockey..." October 16

  • Canucks Luongo, Hamhuis ‘proud, excited’ to play for Team Canada in Sochi

    Vancouver Sun "Marty Hamhuis hasn't slept the same since his son, Dan, returned to his home province 3½ years ago to play hockey for the Vancouver Canucks. “Since he became a Canuck, I have to get out of bed an hour earlier every day just to talk hockey with people,” Mr. Hamhuis laughed Tuesday. “Everybody is..." January 08

  • Canucks tap Dan Hamhuis to fix power-play flop

    Vancouver Sun "Dan Hamhuis won the lottery. But it’s the Vancouver Canucks’ power play that needs to cash in. With a rare man-advantage goal in Tuesday’s 3-2 shootout loss to the Phoenix Coyotes, the Canucks will stick for now with coach John Tortorella’s new power-play formation. It looks a lot like one of..." November 07

  • Hamhuis doing just fine... apparently

    Vancouver Province "With many members of the Vancouver Canucks not playing well early this season there is no shortage of targets to fault for the team's traditional dismal start under this coaching staff.

  • In Bieksa and Hamhuis, Canucks lock up one of the best pairings in NHL

    Vancouver Province "No one this side of Roberto Luongo is a more divisive figure on the Vancouver Canucks than Kevin Bieksa. Fans often want his head. Local reporters and club supporters, those are the friendly critics. Around the league he's despised by many opponents. Remember Ben Eager calling Bieksa a..." July 13

  • Canucks able to keep Bieksa, Hamhuis together

    Vancouver Province "For the Canucks, this is what really matters: When Kevin Bieksa is with Dan Hamhuis and they're crackling along the boards, rigid around the net and sailing the puck out of trouble, they are the best all-purpose pairing the Canucks have had in a long time. As much as possible, the Canucks need..." June 28

  • Hamhuis can't disguise the fun he's having

    Vancouver Sun "Dan Hamhuis doesn't like the spotlight, which is great except for the Vancouver Canuck part. Probably he doesn't like rain, lattes or bike lanes, either, but here he is playing for a Stanley Cup in his home province. In Nashville, the defenceman played behind Shea Weber and Ryan Suter. In..." May 31

  • Skating core to Hamhuis' success

    Vancouver Province "A reserved demeanour suggests Dan Hamhuis seldom gets excited. He is now. Really. Honestly. The Vancouver Canucks defenceman prefers anonymity and allows others to command the spotlight. That's the way the Smithers native is wired. If you want to know why Kevin Bieksa is hogging headlines by..." May 26

  • Canucks' blueline corps may never again be this good

    Vancouver Province "If you're so inclined, you can question Vancouver GM Mike Gillis when he says earnestly he would do the Keith Ballard trade again — in a heartbeat.

  • Kevin Bieksa-Dan Hamhuis duo make Canucks case for the defence

    Vancouver Sun "If Ryan Kesler was the Vancouver Canucks' Superman in their playoff series win over the Nashville Predators, then Kevin Bieksa and Dan Hamhuis were their Dynamic Duo.

  • Dan Hamhuis lists Nashville's strengths

    Vancouver Province "They aren't the Chicago Blackhawks.

April 28

  • Dan Hamhuis to put friendship on back burner in facing ex-teammates

    Vancouver Sun "Vancouver Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis is soft-spoken, thoughtful and — sorry about this, Dan — not very animated in his sessions with the media.

  • This year, Canucks have enviable depth on the blueline

    Vancouver Province "When the curtain came crashing down last spring, Sami Salo was struggling to find his stride with searing testicle pain after being struck by a puck, Alex Edler was lost to an ankle injury and Willie ­Mitchell was sidelined by post-concussion syndrome. Kevin Bieksa and Andrew Alberts couldn't..." April 12

  • Canucks clinch franchise record, but lose Hamhuis to concussion

  • Dan Hamhuis, Keith Ballard back to lead Canucks cavalry charge

    Vancouver Sun ""We're sitting here talking about practice. Not a game, not a game, not a game. But we're talking about practice, man. How silly is that?"

  • Hamhuis still being assessed

    Vancouver Province "Dan Hamhuis didn't make it to the Canucks' Dice & Ice Benefit fundraiser on Thursday night and you can bet the NHL club won't be gambling on his health, either.

February 11

  • No response to Hamhuis hit by Canucks

    Vancouver Sun "No one went after Ryan Getzlaf when his third-period hit left Vancouver defenceman Dan Hamhuis laying flat on the ice.

    Vancouver Province "Mike Gillis got hot under the collar describing how the NHL shouldn't tolerate the apparent slew-foot by Milan Michalek on Monday that sidelined Keith Ballard up to a month with a knee sprain.
