Watch: Canucks Rookie Hunter Shinkaruk Pranked in Montreal

21-year-old Albertan Hunter Shinkaruk got played by the boys prior to making his NHL debut on Monday night at the Molson Centre. It's a time-honored tradition and it never fails to bring a smile to anyone who bears witness. Even the player who got punked. It seems like the rookie was too amped to feel embarrassed. He enjoyed his solo moment and made it last. Good for him.

Shinkaruk was tied for the AHL lead with ten goals before he got the callup.

He's logged 6:52 of ice time in two periods tonight in his debut.
