Canucks players put in video game ban on the road

The Canucks have decided to ban video games while they’re on road trips.

Michael Del Zotto first mooted the idea earlier in training camp but it hasn’t really been a talking point since.

But on Tuesday, Bo Horvat told TSN 1040 that the players had decided to put in a ban on playing video games on the road.

“Yeah, that’s definitely a no-go on the road,” he told Don Taylor and Bob Marjanovich. “No more Fortnite. No more bringing video games on the road. It’s strictly team meals, team dinners and hanging out with the guys. So we put an end to that.”

Fortnite is far and away the most popular video game of the moment, and lots of young NHL players are caught up in the phenomenon.

Horvat said it was about the players interacting with each other.

“In my opinion, there’s better ways to spend time on the road, whether it’s hanging with the guys in the room or going to a movie with the guys. There’s a lot of cool cities we visit and to be cooped up in your room all night, playing Fortnite, is a waste of your time.”

“Hopefully a lot of parents and little kids are listening right now. I don’t play it. Nor will I ever.”
