Vancouver, B.C. -- As a continuation of the 50th season celebrations, the Vancouver Canucks are excited to celebrate the 1980s on Saturday, Dec 7th vs their 1970 expansion cousin, the Buffalo Sabres.
The 80s era game, presented by RE/MAX, will throw back to some of the most memorable players and moments, including the 1982 team that inspired the playoff tradition of "towel power" and brought the Canucks to their first ever Stanley Cup Final.
The team also confirmed today that the Black Skate jersey has been added for the team to wear on Saturday, bringing some extra fun to a game that will include the best mixed tape music for a Walkman.
A limited number of tickets are available at canucks.com/tickets.
