The 16 Days of Trevor Linden on Canucks.com has established a great collection of memories and media remembering Vancouver’s favorite son of the last 20 years. Today, NHL.com has also released a few pieces for Linden fan’s to check out, including my own memories.

Linden gets right to the heart of the matter
By Alanah McGinley

It might seem strange to most, but my favorite and most enduring memory of Trevor Linden was represented in a scene which depicts what might have been the most heartbreaking moment of his NHL career.

It was in the immediate postgame aftermath of the 1994 Stanley Cup Final against the New York Rangers. While the Blueshirts celebrated their hard-fought victory to the roaring appreciation of the Garden’s faithful after the final buzzer, the Canucks were slumped on the sidelines witnessing the atmosphere. And it was in that moment that a cameraman caught Linden in his lens.

You can read the rest here.

Additionally, there’s also two great articles there published by John McGourty: “Love Affair Between Linden, Vancouver Continues” and “Linden Heroic in 1994 Stanley Cup Final”
