Vancouver Canucks Pose With Kittens For Their Holiday Photos

The Vancouver Canucks have a habit of doing something special for the holidays.

Last year, for example, the team wore ugly Christmas sweaters.

This year they doffed the sweaters in favour of — wait for it — kittens from the BC SPCA.

Players including captain Henrik Sedin, winger Alex Burrows, and defenseman Kevin Bieksa appear with their furry little friends in a series of adorable photos and a video on a special holiday site.

There is even a function where you can make your own cards that show the players getting comfy with the cats.

Our favourite? Alex Burrows looking smitten with a kitten in front of the northern lights.

Check out the rest of the Vancouver Canucks' 2014 holiday photos... with KITTIES!
