The Vancouver Canucks have unveiled three new jerseys, plus a retro one they’ll wear during their 50th anniversary season.
With just eight days before they host the NHL Draft, the Canucks revealed tweaks to their home and away jerseys, removing the “Vancouver” wordmark above the orca logo which had been there since 2007. They’ve also centred the orca logo and introduced a “refreshed” Stick and Rink shoulder patch.
Perhaps the most interesting unveiling is a brand new ‘Heritage’ jersey. While it has a retro feel, it’s an entirely new look, with more focus on the colour green than any Canucks jersey in the past. It also features the refreshed Stick and Rink logo and some interesting details on the numbers.

“Acknowledging our history, while looking forward to a new era, the Heritage jersey features a modern stylized take on the Stick and Rink mark worn during our inaugural season in 1970-71,” the Canucks explain. “Representing the rain, the perforations in the numbers depict a defining characteristic of life on the West Coast, and our home.”
And of course, as decided by a fan vote last summer, the Canucks will wear their popular 1994-era black Flying Skate uniforms during their 50th anniversary season.
