Fans chose throwback option to celebrate golden anniversary in 2019-20NHL.com @NHLdotcom
Good news Vancouver Canucks fans: the Flying Skate jerseys are coming back.
Back by popular demand, the Canucks will wear the spectacular black, red and orange throwback jerseys for select games during their 50th anniversary season in 2019-20.
Vancouver invited fans to vote for its throwback alternate jersey for the team's golden-anniversary season, and 70 percent chose the Flying Skate option, pushing it ahead of the Flying V and Original Orca stylings.
The Canucks originally wore the Flying Skate uniforms from 1985-97, including when Pavel Bure, Trevor Linden and Co. pushed them to the Stanley Cup Final in 1994. The alternate jersey fan vote is just the first of many plans to celebrate Vancouver's 50th NHL season.
