June 16th, 1992: Pavel Bure receives the Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookie, becoming the first Vancouver player to win a postseason award. In 65 games his rookie year, Bure scored 34 goals and notched 26 assists. At the same NHL Awards ceremony, Patt Quinn would win the Jack Adams, the first coach to win the award with two different teams.

In addition, on June 16th, 1994, Bure is selected as the NHL’s First Team All-Star Right Winger. Bure is the first Canuck to achieve the honor and, on the same day, he signed a multi-year contract with Vancouver making him the highest paid player in club history (until, of course, Mats Sundin rolled around).
