City Hall celebrates 40 years of Canucks hockey in Vancouver
Today city council celebrated the beginning of the 40th anniversary season of The Vancouver Canucks. The Vancouver Canucks 40th Anniversary is a season-long celebration honouring the most significant Canucks and events since the inception of the team in 1970.
During the 2010/11 season, the Vancouver Canucks will wear its original sweater for five games; launch the Ring of Honour to forever immortalize the franchise’s heroes in a permanent display inside of Rogers Arena; unveil 40 Stories-40 Nights celebrating an impactful Canucks memory for each home game, and; retire Markus Naslund’s number 19 to the rafters of Rogers Arena for only the third time in club history.
