Global Spectrum working on bringing the Vancouver Canucks Young Stars tournament back

The Vancouver Canucks Young Stars tournament is likely returning to Penticton in the fall.

Dean Clarke, general manager of Global Spectrum, confirmed that they are working with the Canucks to make it happen. Clarke said they expect to make an official announcement the first week of June. A tweet by a Vancouver sports reporter was posted on the Canucks message board that the dates are Sept. 5 to 9. The tournament was cancelled last fall due to the NHL lockout.
