Press release via Marketwire:
The Vancouver Canucks and Direct Energy announce the return of Direct Energy’s “You Call the Shots Contest,” where one lucky fan will experience what it is like to be General Manager of the Vancouver Canucks for a day. Direct Energy’s “You Call the Shots Contest” will award one fortunate fan and three friends a rare hockey prize package that will allow the group to experience a day in the life of an NHL General Manager.
