With mascot Johnny Canuck behind the camera delivering a bizarre voiceover, we get our first look at the ‘Retro Night’ Canucks jerseys:

Jake Virtanen modelled the sweater. You can take a look at numbering and lettering, as well as getting a look at the pants and socks combination the Canucks will be wearing Feb. 13 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
