Canucks' Historical Stats Leaders

New, comments

I have almost always kept track of player stats. Not so much anymore, because of life circumstances. I remember when I was a kid I would collect every hockey card I could and I'd always study the statistics of the player and even make a list of team scoring leaders. Those were fun times. You know, pre-internet. Let's take a look at the current Canucks' franchise leaders in all the categories I can find. Consider this a history lesson, punks!

6. Henrik Sedin: 166

So many things stand out for me after compiling these stats:

1. The Sedins are masters in this organization and are going to own almost every franchise record.

2. Shake the hands of Geoff Courtnall and Cliff Ronning and Greg Adams if you ever meet them and thank them for their contributions.

3. Thomas Gradin doesn't get much face time on these lists....but...he has 38 points in 38 playoff games for the Canucks,  a point per game pace in the playoffs that was only topped by Pavel Bure.
