The Russian Rocket Turns 40 Today

The most exciting player to ever wear a Vancouver Canucks jersey turns 40 today.  While his time in Vancouver was cut short he is still the only Canuck to score back-to-back 60 goal seasons or win a Calder trophy.  Not only did he help fill seats every night but he was responsible for getting fans off of them as well.

Happy Birthday Pavel, thanks for the memories.

  1. Just realized I was actually at the game in Tokyo when this photo was taken almost exactly FOURTEEN years ago. That’s all. Nothing really pertinent other than “yay for me, I’m old”.

    Hope all’s well with you guys.
