The Vancouver Canucks have been in the NHL since 1970, and during that time they have had some very big stars play for their team. The Canucks are starting their 52 NHL season this upcoming month; so far they have an overall record of 1689-1776-391-171. They have been in the playoffs 28 times, most recently in 2020 during the COVID bubble.
This team has a lot of notable alumni like Kevin Bieksa, Alexandre Burrows, and Alexander Edler to name a few, and their active roster also looks like a force to be reckoned with. They have up-and-coming stars like Brock Boeser and Elias Pettersson in their forward group and of course Quinn Hughes on their blueline.
So today we are looking at the top five Canucks in the history of the franchise
5. Roberto Luongo
I did want to include a goalie on this list, and what better goalie to include than Roberto Luongo? Luongo is first in the franchise in wins and second in games played with 252 wins in 448 games.
He has the second-best goals-against average and save percentage in the history or the organization and he is the leader in shutouts with 38 in the net. The Canucks are lucky to have had Luengo on their team and it will be a long time before anyone passes his 252 wins.
Luongo spent eight seasons with the Canucks and during that time the team went to the playoffs six times. Luongo played in 64 playoff games for the team and finished with a record of 32-31, his best campaign came in 2011 when he helped lead the team to the Stanley Cup Finals.
