February 12th – Vancouver Canucks

The Canucks will retire Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin‘s jerseys on February 12th against Chicago. By this time, Vancouver will have a new captain on the ice.

The Canucks also possess two of the most dynamic skaters in the league. Reigning Calder Cup winner, Elias Pettersson, will look to outdo himself in his sophomore season.

Rookie blue-liner, Quinn Hughes, already looks stellar this early in the season, and by the time February comes around, the NHL will have gotten a better taste.

This game should be pure nostalgia.  One last tap of the stick to the iconic Vancouver twins. Viewers will be reminded of the 2011 Stanley Cup playoffs and the rivalry between the two teams of that era.

The importance of the Sedins and their time in Vancouver is sure to be echoed by the ‘Hawks that were there to witness it. This match-up should serve as one last embrace of two incredible careers, and Chicago’s small piece of it, as #22 and #33 are raised to the rafters.
