Vancouver Canucks’ GM Mike Gillis talks about fatigue and travel schedules

The Vancouver Canucks have a tough road schedule this year. Appearing on Team 1040 President and General Manager of the Canucks, Mike Gillis outlined their fatigue management plan for the year. At Fatigue Science we have been providing sleep and fatigue technology and services to the Canucks for the past 5 seasons. The results speak for themselves. Using our fatigue management system the Canucks have a road record that is the envy of the NHL, particularly the west coast teams. After more than 40 years the Canucks, using our system, lead the entire NHL in road wins.

In all sports, travelling is fatiguing but travelling from West to East is the worst kind of travel. It robs players of valuable sleep and slows their reaction time. Mike Gillis points out that our fatigue management system can keep players above 90% effectiveness and improve player reaction time. It’s a matter of gathering the best scientific sleep and fatigue data using our ReadiBands and applying travel solutions to give players the opportunity to sleep when they need to. Teams and athletes in all sports are beginning to realize the competitive advantage great sleep gives them.
