Other Stuff: Just in case the other
options aren't enough for you.

Team codes are used on pages like All-Star Game Reps, History of Hats and Team Totals.

Eight NHL teams have had names that started with "C" and four of those were not named for a city.

Team Codes

On various pages of "The Canuck Library", you will see three letter team codes. Most of them are pretty obvious, although there are a few codes that are a little confusing. To eliminate that confusion, this is a list of the codes I use.

"Seasons" represents the seasons that the Canucks have competed against the specified team (even if the specified team existed before the Canucks entered the NHL).

ANA - From 1993-94 to 2005-06, the franchise was known as the "Mighty Ducks of Anaheim". Since 2006-07, the team has been known as the "Anaheim Ducks". My stats treat this as a single team.

CAL - The first NHL team in Northern California had more than one name including "California Seals" and "Oakland Seals". However, during the time they played the Canucks (1970-71 to 1975-76), they were only the "California Golden Seals".

CHI - When the Canucks entered the NHL, Chicago's team was the "Black Hawks". In 1986, the team name was changed to the "Blackhawks" (one word).

PHO - From 1996-97 to 2013-14, the franchise was the "Phoenix Coyotes". Since 2014-15, the team has been known as the "Arizona Coyotes". My stats treat this as a single team.

WIJ, WIN - There have been two teams in Winnipeg, both called the Jets. My stats separate the two teams. On some pages, these are differentiated as "Winnipeg Jets (1979)" and "Winnipeg Jets (2011)".
