VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks will honour members of their 1994 team that made it all the way to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final when they host the Ottawa Senators for next month's Heritage Classic.

Players expected to be on hand for the game at B.C. Place Stadium on March 2 include Trevor Linden, Kirk MacLean, Cliff Ronning, Jyrki Lumme, Gino Odjick, Dave Babych and Geoff Courtnall.

Also expected to be in attendance from the 1994 team are former head coach and general manager Pat Quinn, as well as former assistant coach Stan Smyl.

One player not on the list of attendees is Pavel Bure, who had his No. 10 retired by the Canucks earlier this season.

Vancouver lost the 1994 Stanley Cup final in seven games to the New York Rangers.

It means a lot to us, we're very excited. We're looking to continue to build on [our] top core talent of young players. It's just a great opportunity for us to really build high.
