Our Vancouver Canucks-Inspired hockey art print reflects the history of one of the NHL's early expansion franchises. Vancouver has long played a prominent role in hockey history. In 1911, Frank and Lester Patrick formed a new hockey league that included the Vancouver Millionaires and two other teams. The Millionaires won their only Stanley Cup in 1914 and the team eventually folded in 1924.
Johnny Canuck first appeared in political cartoons in 1869 as a lumberjack cartoon counter-character that stood up to Uncle Sam in the United States. By World War II, his popularity soared and when the Pacific Coast Hockey League established a hockey franchise in Vancouver 1945, they adopted 'Canucks' as their nickname. The Canucks played in the Western Hockey League until 1970 at the Vancouver Forum. In 1970 they joined the NHL as a part of the leagues second wave of expansion and began play at the Pacific Coliseum.
Our Vancouver Canucks-Inspired vintage hockey art print was created for passionate Canuck fans like you that love the game, your team, and its roots. It celebrates aspects of Vancouver and the team's heritage, blending modern day design elements like the team colours and an illustration of an Orca, with heritage inspired elements such antique hockey sticks, a map of Vancouver, and a stylized V inspired by the Millionaires' logo.
