 An arena set up for ice hockey. Players skate towards center ice, while a larger crowd is waiving white towels. Over head is a jumbo-tron with an extreme close-up of a player looking seriously at the camera, above and below the picture is the word "Believe" in white lights with a blue light background.

The Vancouver Canucks are a professional ice hockey team based in Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. The Canucks are members of the National Hockey League (NHL) and are currently a members of the Northwest Division in the Western Conference. The Canucks' team team founded in 1945 as a member of the Pacific Coast Hockey League (PCHL), winning the President's Cup in its first season, and another in 1948. In 1952, the PCHL was renamed the Western Hockey League (WHL), where the Canucks captured four more league titles in 1958, 1960, 1969 and 1970. In 1960, the President's Cup was renamed the Lester Patrick Cup to honour the late Lester Patrick.[1]

After a failed attempt to gain an expansion team in the NHL's first expansion in 1967, a group from Vancouver tried to move the financial struggling Oakland Seals to town 1969.[2] However the NHL prevented the move from happening. Prior to the 1970 NHL expansion a Minneapolis, Minnesota base company, Medicor, purchased the WHL Canucks[3], gaining their name, franchise history and roster of players. Medicor parleyed their new Canucks ownership into gaining an NHL franchise and the WHL Cancuks were promoted to the NHL beginning in the 1970-71 season.[4] The Canucks have not enjoyed the same success in the NHL, having thus far been unable to capture the Stanley Cup. The Canucks franchise has captured two conference titles, 1981–82 and 1993–94, and seven division titles in its NHL history.

Table keyEdit

A grey building with two distincive sections. The section on the left curves in a circular manner away from the viewer. The lower half is composed of windows. The section on the right is shaped like a square and has windows only in the bottom-left corner. A yellow circle and two jagged green shapes resembling triangles are at the top-right of the square building, with the words General Motors Place written in white capitals directly beneath. Several skysrapers are visible in the background.

NotesEdit

^ a: From 1981 until 1993, the team that won its divisional playoff (2nd round matchup) was the division champion, regardless of regular season standing, essentially creating a regular season champion ans a post season champion. Vancouver recognizes both the regulars season division champions and post season champions from this time period.
^ b: Beginning in 1999 overtime losses were worth one point.[28] As of the 2005–06 NHL season, all games will have a winner; the OTL column includes SOL (Shootout losses).[29]
^ c: Season was shortened due to the 1994–95 NHL lockout.[30]
