#1 DON LEVER
GOALS-186 ASSISTS-221 POINTS-407


The Vancouver Canucks drafted Don Lever with the third-overall pick in the 1972 draft. Don Lever showed he had grit and hard checking. He was known for his penalty-killing abilities and apt for scoring on the powerplay. He is 10th all-time in franchise scoring for the Vancouver Canucks with 407 points in 593 games played.

#2 DENNIS KEARNS
GOALS-31 ASSISTS-290 POINTS-321


Dennis Kearns was a fast puck-moving defenceman that could use his skillset to advance the puck, create opportunities, and quarterback plays with his elite skating. Remind you of any defenceman on the Canucks today? He has 321 points with the Vancouver Canucks making him tied for third in the franchise leading Canuck's defenders.

#3 ANDRE BOUDRIAS
GOALS-121 ASSISTS-267 POINTS-388


Andre Boudrias had the franchise leading assists record in one season with the Canucks for 35 years! In the 1974-75 season Boudrias collected 62 assists and that record stood until the 2009-10 season when a talented Swedish player by the name of Henrik Sedin completely shattered that record with 83 assists of his own. Still very impressive to hold on to a Canucks record for 35 years.
