NHL History: Pavel Bure becomes first Canuck to score 100 points in a season

It was on this day back in 1993 that former Vancouver Canucks sniper, Pavel Bure, become the first player in franchise history to register 100 points in a single season.

On Thursday, April 1st, 1993, the Vancouver Canucks faced off against the Tampa Bay Lightning in what would be a historic night for the franchise as Pavel Bure became the first player in franchise history to hit the century mark in a single season. His assist on Robert Dirk’s second period goal, was the Russian Rocket’s 100th point of the season on his way 110 points overall, which sat as a franchise record for single season production until it was finally broken by Henrik Sedin (112 points) in 2009-10.

The ’93 season was also the first of back-to-back 60-goal campaigns for the former 6th round pick (133rd overall), which is a mark that has yet to be repeated. Those 60-goal totals in both ’93 and ’94 remain atop of the Canucks’ leaderboard in terms of regular season goal scoring with the closest challenge being Daniel Sedins’ 41 goals scored in 2010-11.
