Louie Giglio is a pastor and founder of the Passion Movement, a Christian organization geared toward young adults and college students. The movement has been around since the mid-1990s touring the world and spreading their message.
On Friday night, the Passion Movement made an appearance at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Giglio, while holding Daniel Sedin's actual helmet, asked for those in attendance to pray for the health of the Canucks forward, who's sidelined with concussion-like symptoms.
As if the millions of Canucks fans in Vancouver and around the world weren't already praying for Sedin's quick return to health after Duncan Keith's elbow to the head on Wednesday night, what's a few thousand more? And what better way to get your fans in the city you're touring even more behind you than holding a mass prayer for the quick recovery of one of their hockey stars?
Despite the fact one their top players was injured by a reckless elbow, the Canucks are tight-lipped about their feelings about the five game suspension for Keith. There's still no timetable on Sedin's return to the Canucks' lineup as they begin a five-game homestand tonight.
