Canadian Man Convicted For Rioting After Canucks' Stanley Cup Loss To Bruins

Saturday January 7th, 2012

Seven months ago, the city of Vancouver rioted as the Canucks fell short in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals against the Boston Bruins. Only now are those who caused the mayhem beginning to face the consequences.

Ryan Dickinson, a 20-year-old man from the Vancouver suburb of Coquitlam, pleaded guilty today to participating in the riot, according to the Canadian Press. He also pleaded guilty to breach of recognizance. Dickinson has been in jail since his arrest last month for violating a court-ordered curfew connected with a previous assault charge.
