History Of The Vancouver Canucks
The Vancouver Canucks joined the NHL as an expansion team in 1970 along with Buffalo Sabres but was not the first professional hockey team to call Vancouver home. Frank and Lester Patrick established the Vancouver Millionaires in 1911 as one of three teams to play in the new Pacific Coast Hockey Association and directed the construction of the Denman Arena. The facility had the world’s largest artificial ice surface at the time until the building burned down in 1936. The Millionaires played in five Stanley Cups and won it in 1915 beating the Ottawa Senators to become the first west coast team to win the Stanley Cup in the trophy’s history.
In 1967 Vancouver started construction of the Pacific Coliseum for the sole purpose of attracting a NHL franchise. A bid was made to be one of the six expansion teams to double the size of the league in 1967 but it was rejected. The Oakland Seals were having financial difficulty in 1968 and the NHL apparently turned down a plan to relocate the failing team to Vancouver as they didn’t like how it would look having a one-year old expansion team move but promised the British Columbia city would receive a team the next time the league wanted to add more teams. The group that was awarded the franchise purchased the WHL Vancouver Canucks and brought it into the NHL in 1970.
The Canucks team colors are blue, green, silver and white and they are part of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference.
Top players who have worn the Vancouver jersey include Markus Naslund (1995-2008), Henri and Daniel Sedin (2000-present), Stan Smyl (1978-1991), Pavel Bure (1991-1998) and Trevor Linden (1988-2008).
The Vancouver Canucks have yet to win a Stanley Cup but they have 2 Presidents' Trophies (2010-2011, 2011-2012) as well as 3 Conference Championships and 10 Division Championships.
