Fans Rally For Gino Odjick

from Rhiannon Coppin of CBC,

Gino Odjick surprised and delighted hundreds of fans by making an appearance at the rally held in his honour outside Vancouver General Hospital Sunday.

The Former Vancouver Canucks enforcer Gino Odjick has a rare terminal illness affecting his heart, and doctors say he may have as little as a few weeks to live.

"I really appreciate you guys coming. It means a lot to me," he told members of the crowd gathered near the front entrance to the hospital.

"It's pretty amazing," he said, as more fans, gathered across the street, cheered. "I'm a little bit overwhelmed, and really touched."
