WORLD'S FIRST
VANCOUVER CANUCKS LOGO

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

What was the first Vancouver Canucks logo?

If you're a Vancouver Canucks fan like us you know the Canucks entered the NHL in the 1970-71 season and probably remember their first NHL logo, the ice rink with the stick in the middle.

The Vancouver Canucks actually got their start in the Pacific Coast Hockey League in 1945, winning the PCHL championships their first year.

In 1952, the PCHL merged with the Western Canada Senior Hockey League to form the professional Western Hockey League and that's where the Canucks played until 1970.

The Canucks tried to get into the NHL in 1965 but were rejected, before finally being accepted in time for the 1970-71 season.

So, back to the logo, the first logo the Canucks used back in 1945 was a picture of Johnny Canuck, a political cartoon character created in 1869 and re-invented again in 1942.

Before we show you some pictures, here are some more Canucky facts:

  • Canuck is a slang for Canadian, much like Yankee is slang for American.

  • The Canucks' first captain in the NHL was Orland Kurtenbach.

  • The Canucks played their first NHL game on October 09, 1970 against the Los Angeles Kings, they lost.

  • The Canucks won their first NHL game on October 11, 1970, beating the Toronto Maple Leafs 5 - 3.

  • The Canucks' first NHL goal was scored by Barry Wilkins.

  • The Canucks did not qualify for the playoffs until the 1974-75 season, losing in the Quarterfinals to the Montreal Canadiens.
