Pavel Bure to Help with Vancouver Canucks Charities This Week

Former Vancouver Canucks winger Pavel Bure will be in Vancouver this week to help out with charities affiliated with the Canucks, according to Global BC’s Squire Barnes.

Barnes called this “fence mending” and is the first step towards his number 10 being eventually retired by the Canucks.

It was reported last November by the Province’s Jason Botchford that Bure’s jersey number was going to be retired by the Canucks, but there hasn’t been any news on that front since.

One argument fans against the retirement of Bure’s jersey have made is he doesn’t deserve the same kind of honour as Stan Smyl, Trevor Linden, and Markus Naslund because Bure wasn’t as active as the three former captains in the community.

The annual Canucks for Kids Telethon happens this Thursday on the TEAM 1040 and Sportsnet Pacific when the Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers. Each year, the Canucks have player wives and alumni members answering phone calls and you can bet Bure will be one of them.
