’94 Vancouver Canucks Reminisce

mcleanvancouvercanucksIt seems appropriate that as the Vancouver Canucks make their run for the Stanley Cup – they haven’t gotten this far since 1994 – that those same 1994 teammates are getting together for a trip down memory lane.

The team that made it to the 1994 Stanley Cup Final will be having a reunion tomorrow at the River Rock Casino in Richmond. From 2 pm to 5 pm the ’94 Canucks will be in the lobby area signing autographs and reminiscing about their own run for the cup. This is a free all ages event that includes prizes and photographs.

You’ll have the chance to meet Kirk McLean, Murray Craven, Dana Murzyn, Jeff Brown, Marty Gelinas and Gerald Diduck!

The current Vancouver Canucks play in Game 4 of the Western Conference Final against the San Jose Sharks today at 12 pm PDT in San Jose.
