Canucks Retire Pavel Bure's #10
Canucks retired Pavel Bure's #10 tonight in front of a sold out crowd at Rogers Arena in Vancouver. Bure, one of the most dynamic player to ever play the game and arguably the greatest Vancouver Canuck of all time joined Stan Smyl's #12, Trevor Linden's #16 and Markus Naslund's #19 as the only Vancouver Canucks to have their jersey retired.
During a 12 year career with Vancouver, Florida and the New York Rangers, Bure scored 437 goals and added 342 assists in just 702 games.
As a Canuck, Bure scored 254 goals, won the Calder Trophy as the league's top rookie in 1992, had five 50 goal seasons and registered consecutive 60 goal seasons in 92-93 and 93-94.
In 2012, Bure became the only Canuck player to be elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
