CAREER GAMES

  • JT Miller notched four points in a game (1-3-4) for the first time in his NHL career on Oct. 9/19 vs LA. This achievement also matched a franchise record for most points in a home opener. According to NHL PR, Greg Adams (4-0-4) and Tony Tanti (0-4-4) originally established the mark over 20 years ago after combining on four of eight Vancouver goals in a win over St. Louis (Oct. 8/87).
  • Brandon Sutter tied career highs for most goals (2) and points (2-1-3) in a game on Oct. 9/19 vs LA.

YOUNG GUN

Quinn Hughes (19 years, 360 days) notched his first NHL goal Oct. 9 vs LA and became the youngest Canucks defenceman to find the back of the net since J.J Daigneault (19 years, 176 days) did so on April 6, 1985 at Los Angeles.

LIGHT THE LAMP

The Canucks tied a club record for goals in a home opener with 8 on Oct. 9/19 vs LA (the two previous times were Oct. 8/87 vs STL and Oct. 11/78 vs CLR). According to NHL PR, just three other teams in the last 10 years have scored eight or more goals in their home opener: Chicago (10; Oct. 5, 2017 vs. PIT), Philadelphia (8; Oct. 14, 2017 vs. WSH) and Toronto (8; Oct. 7, 2017 vs. NYR). The last time the Canucks scored 8 goals in a game was Nov. 8/18 vs Boston, which ended in an 8-5 Canucks win.
