UPDATE: Winner from West Kelowna claims Canucks’ record-breaking 50/50 jackpot

One lucky fan from West Kelowna took home $706,815

The Vancouver Canucks did not come away as winners Tuesday night, but one lucky fan from West Kelowna did.

The identity of the winner has yet to be released.

The team announced during the third period against the Los Angeles Kings that 50/50 the jackpot totalled $1,413,630, with a take-home prize of $706,815.

This broke a previous record of $1,014,555 set during former Canucks Daniel and Henrik Sedin’s final NHL game on April 5.

“Extraordinary” online ticket sales delayed the email system, but all technical problems have been resolved.

The funds will help support the Canucks Autism Network, Canuck Place Children’s Hospice and the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.
