Linden finished his first NHL season with the team lead in goals (30) and ranked second in points (59). Linden was the first Vancouver Canucks rookie to ever score 30 goals. Linden helped his team make the playoffs his rookie year after a three year absence and he would go on to score seven points in seven games before the team was ousted by the eventual Stanley Cup champion Calgary Flames.

Linden was also named to the NHL All-Rookie Team and finished second to Brian Leetch for the Calder Trophy.
