The Vancouver Canucks 50th anniversary won’t take place until the 2019-20 season, but a major piece of the preparations fell into place this past week. The NHL requires advance notice when it comes to new jerseys, even if they’re just alternate jerseys that are worn on special occasions. The league needs to approve these things, like conservative parents hemming and hawing over their daughter’s choice of prom dress. It’s a long process.

Linden, the former president of hockey operations for the Vancouver Canucks, was instrumental in the NHL club keeping Stecher — an undrafted and under-sized defenceman — on its radar. “Trevor did a lot for me early on when I first came in,” the 24-year-ol

Troy Stecher doesn’t know Quinn Hughes, but he knows what an extra year of college hockey can provide. The Vancouver Canucks’ defenceman parlayed a third season at North Dakota into a 2016 NCAA championship and a free-agent contract with the NHL club.
