@VanCanucks: Media Release: #Canucks to wear Millionaires "V" patch on their third sweaters - http://t.co/7tMcLkq6



Vancouver, B.C. – The Vancouver Canucks are proud to announce they will celebrate 100 years of hockey on the West Coast by wearing the Vancouver Millionaires "V" patch on their sweaters for select home games in the 2012.13 season beginning tonight versus the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Vancouver Millionaires were the first professional hockey team on the West Coast, playing in the Pacific Coast Hockey Association from 1912 through 1922. The Millionaires won the Stanley Cup in 1915 against the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey Association, which later became the NHL. The Millionaires played at the 10,500 seat Denman Arena built by Frank and Lester Patrick at the corner of Georgia and Denman and were the first Canadian team to play hockey on artificial ice.

The Canucks will wear the "V" on the front right chest of their sweaters in honour of Vancouver's original hockey heroes such as Fred "Cyclone" Taylor, who was a member of the Stanley Cup winning Vancouver Millionaires squad.

Canucks third sweaters adorned with the "V" on the chest will be available at the Canucks Team Store at Rogers Arena beginning today and early next week at all remaining Canucks Team Store locations. The Millionaires "V" patch and other Millionaires fashion apparel will also be available at the Canucks retail stores.

Go to canucks.com/millionaires for more information and check back often for more exciting Millionaires news as the Canucks continue to honour Vancouver's hockey roots, particularly in-game March 16th as the Canucks host the Detroit Red Wings.

A better way to celebrate the 100 year anniversary would be to repeat it and beat Ottawa in the finals again. :towel:

So they have dumped this third jersey? That's what the fourth paragraph is suggesting I think?

The jersey isn't changing, they're just adding a patch, exactly like it says.

Canucks should go back to the power stripes and keep the patch as the logo for a third jersey.

I believe they mean the upper right of the chest, though I may be mistaken. I thought that mention of our March 16th game vs. Detroit as being a game to look forward to was a better hint of what's to come...

Why not wear it all season? It's just a patch. Seems weird to pick and choose just a few games to have it.

Cool, hopefully they re-do the old throwback Millionaire jerseys.

I'd like to see the exact jersey, just with our colours.
