Canucks and Beyond

Darcy Tucker does have career aspirations. And although there’s no confirmation that hockey is among them, he and Ron MacLean of Hockey Night in Canada have undertaken a new venture this summer: acting.
‘Little Mosque on the Prairie’ is a CBC television comedy with a large audience. And be you Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Muslim or anything else in this country, hockey is on the menu for everyone. So Tucker decides to join the mosque.
Note: I realize most readers outside of Canada won’t be familiar with the show but it has been a hit for CBC in recent months, syndicating itself in countries all over the world. And I always enjoy seeing hockey appear in small ways in pop culture, so it’s sort of cool to see a new venture.
