Vancouver, B.C. - The Vancouver Canucks revealed a new logo today in honour of their 50th season celebration during a Throwback Night theme game versus the New York Islanders at Rogers Arena. The logo will be used throughout Vancouver's 2019.20 NHL season, which marks the 50th season of the Canucks franchise in the National Hockey League.
About the 50th season logo
Styled in classic Canucks blue, the logo reveals an upright hockey stick and blade outlined in the negative space between the number 50; a modern-take of the elegant stick-in-rink logo first worn in the inaugural season of the franchise. Vancouver's primary logo, the orca whale, sits below and links eras in Canucks history past and present.

50th Season Background
The 50th season celebration honours five decades of Vancouver Canucks hockey as an exciting new era begins. From Stanley Cup runs to generational lines and players to unforgettable moments in franchise history, the year-long festivities start when Vancouver hosts the 2019 NHL Entry Draft in June. The season long celebration includes the launch of a new alternate jersey, a special return appearance of the skate logo and black uniform as voted by fans, and the highly anticipated retirement ceremony of Daniel and Henrik Sedin's numbers 22 and 33. The Vancouver Canucks first season as an NHL franchise was 1970.71, when the league expanded to 14 teams. The Buffalo Sabres franchise entered the NHL that same year. More information on the Canucks 50th anniversary celebration will be announced soon.
