NHLIn conjunction with 100 years of hockey in British Columbia, the Vancouver Canucks are selling Vancouver Millionaires jerseys at their team retail stores. The jerseys are part of a so-called “V” patch line that includes other “Millionaires fashion apparel.”

The Canucks will officially celebrate their hockey roots on Mar. 16, 2013 before the Canucks-Red Wings game. For more information on the history, please visit canucks.com/millionaires.

Throughout the season, the Canucks are also wearing jerseys that are adorned with a Millionaires “V” patch. The patch is worn for select home games during the 2012-13 season.

The Vancouver Millionaires were the first professional hockey team on the West Coast, playing in the Pacific Coast Hockey Association from 1912 through 1922. The Millionaires won the Stanley Cup in 1915 against the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey Association, which later became the NHL. The Millionaires played at the 10,500 seat Denman Arena built by Frank and Lester Patrick at the corner of Georgia and Denman and were the first Canadian team to play hockey on artificial ice.
