January 19, 1972: Andre Boudrias becomes the first Canuck to reach 100 career points in a 6-1 win at Pittsburgh.

Boudrias arrived in Vancouver before the 1970-71 season and immediately lead the team with 66 points, the first of four seasons he would be the top scorer on the team. In true Canuck fashion, he was nicknamed "Superpest" for his skating, forechecking and defensive prowess. He helped the Canucks to their first-ever playoff appearance in 1975 and was the only player left over from the 1970 inaugural squad to be present for it.

Unofficially, he's regarded as the franchise's first bonafide offensive star (his record for 62 assists stood for over three decades before it was finally broken by Henrik Sedin in the 2006-07 campaign).

After he retired, Boudrias was a scout with the Montreal Canadiens and, more recently, the New Jersey Devils. He also won the Cup in 1986 and again in 1993 as the assistant general manager and director of scouting for Montreal.
