SPORTS PICKS ANNOUNCEMENT: TREVOR LINDEN CANUCKS EXCLUSIVE
Figure Available Starting in October
Friday, May 09, 2008

McFarlane Toys is teaming up with the Vancouver Canucks for an exclusive Sports Picks figure for one of the most-beloved Canucks of all time.

He spent some time in New York, Washington, D.C. and Montreal, but Trevor Linden's heart never strayed from the Vancouver Canucks®. He was named captain of the Canucks at age 20, and would later play for team Canada in the Olympics as well as serving eight years as president of the NHLPA. In 1994, Linden led the Canucks® to the brink of their first Stanley Cup™, pushing the New York Rangers® to Game 7 of the finals. Linden delivered a pair of goals in the decisive game, but Vancouver was edged by New York 3-2.

Linden's contributions extend beyond the ice as well, and his charitable work was recognized with the King Clancy Memorial Trophy in 1997. Through his 16th season in Vancouver in 2007-08, Linden has left it all on the ice – building a legacy the fans will never forget.

McFarlane Toys has created a new look for our classic Trevor Linden figure - showing off the new-look Vancouver jerseys they wore in the 2007-08 season. Enjoy the photography!
