Jersey Numbers

For some players it's just a number, for others it is a vital component in a superstitious ritual and for rare players, it is the mark that identifies their career. Players have been wearing numbers on their backs since the Patrick brothers moved to the west coast of Canada in the early 1900's. When the Canucks joined the NHL, jersey numbers were the only way to identify some players (names were added several years later).

In their history, the Canucks have had players wear every number from 1 to 46 and several numbers between 48 and 96. Some players use the same number for their entire career, while others switch numbers on a regular basis. See the complete list of jerseys by number.

Retired Numbers:
#12 - Stan Smyl (officially retired November 3, 1991)
#16 - Trevor Linden (officially retired November 17, 2008)
#19 - Markus Naslund (to be retired during 2010-11 season)

#11 - Wayne Maki (unofficially retired after his death in May 1974. The number was given to Mark Messier when he signed with Vancouver, but number 11 has not been worn since Messier left in 2000.)
#28 - Luc Bourdon (not officially retired, but the number has not been used since his death in May 2008.)

Notes
There is either a date or a season in the First Worn column. Dates represent the actual date of the game where the player wore the number for the first time. If a season is listed, I do not have the actual game date in my records. In some cases a date is listed, but the comments will indicate that this date is a "best guess" (noted by the (?) notation in the comments).

There are three common phrases in the Comments section. Players who made their NHL debut with the Canucks are listed as "First NHL Game" while those who played elsewhere in the NHL before joining the Canucks are listed as "First Game as Canuck". In cases where a player wore one number with the Canucks and then changed, the comment of "New Number" is used along with the number that they switched from. Records from the 1970's and early 1980's are incomplete and the comments reflect this, but indicate where partial information is available.

The date in the Last Worn column does not always correspond to an actual game date. It represents the latest date that the player "owned" the number. When players change numbers or leave the team during the off-season, this date is usually the date of the last game of the season. When players are traded during the season, this date is the date of the last game before they were traded (even if the player did not play that game). Dates in the month of July are used when I only know the season the player wore the number. The "(current)" notation is used for players who are either using the number this season, or who may return to the Canucks before the season ends.

In some cases, players are listed under a single jersey number twice. This is either because the player left the Canucks for a significant period of time (on another team or in the minors) or because someone else used the same number while the player was gone. A number may be used by one player at the start of the season, a second player during the season, and then the original player may return late in that same season. They would be listed twice as they "lost" their number, then got it back.

The Canucks have had two players named Mike Brown. The first played 16 games between 2000-01 and 2001-02. The second played 39 games between 2007-08 and 2008-09. The second Mike Brown's name is listed as Mike 2 Brown to distinguish the players.
