Vancouver Canucks Tickets
The Vancouver Canucks became part of the NHL in 1970, first making the playoffs in the 1974-75 season. In 1982, the team made it all the way to the Stanley Cup finals. The Canucks were the first team that was western-based to make it to the finals in more than 50 years. In the early '90s, the Canucks had two consecutive division titles. The team again made it to the Stanley Cup finals in the '94 season and once again in the '11 season. Travis Green became the Canucks coach in 2017. Getting near its 50th year in existence, the team has been entertaining generations of hockey fans and attending a Canucks game at Rogers Arena has become an important Vancouver tradition.
