It’s the jersey of Pavel Bure, Trevor Linden and Kirk McLean. It’s the uniform the Canucks wore during their magical run to the Stanley Cup final in 1994. And it’s making its return Feb. 13. The Canucks unveiled the updated version of the sweater Monday on their Twitter account in a take-off of the unboxing videos that have become popular over the past few years. With mascot Johnny Canuck behind the camera delivering a bizarre voiceover, we get our first look at the ‘Retro Night’ Canucks jerseys:
