The Vancouver Canucks are turning back the clock to the 90s next season.
On Thursday, the team announced that their popular Black Skate jerseys would be worn three times during the 2019-20 season to celebrate their 50th anniversary as a franchise. It will not be brought back after next season – so enjoy it while it lasts!
The Canucks wore the iconic jersey during their franchise’s second appearance in the 1994 Stanley Cup Final. The Rangers won in seven games.
In total, Vancouver announced four new jerseys for next season which includes updates to their home, away, and third jerseys.
“In honour of our 50th Season, we have developed a jersey collection to celebrate our history, while launching a new era of Vancouver Canucks hockey with a modern look,” the Canucks wrote on their website. “The reimagined jerseys symbolize a connection to a city that is as vibrant and diverse as our jersey collection – which will now include updated home and away jerseys that carry on our team identity, and a new Heritage jersey that honours our franchise history.”
The home and away jerseys will no longer have “VANCOUVER” written on them and the Orca whale crest has been positioned in the center. “The change is also a reflection of a passionate Canucks fan base that extends throughout British Columbia,” the Canucks said.
The jerseys also have a new shoulder patch: the stick and rink mark that is on the team’s Heritage jersey.
The Canucks Heritage jersey “features a modern stylized take on the Stick and Rink mark worn during our inaugural season in 1970-71. The numbers on the back also have perforations, representing the rain – “a defining characteristic of life on the West Coast.”
