At the 2011 NHL Entry Draft the Canucks used their first pick, number 29 overall, to select Nicklas Jensen.

The Vancouver Canucks are a professional ice hockey team based in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. They play at the 18,810-capacity Rogers Arena.[1] They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League. The Canucks joined the league in 1970 as an expansion team along with the Buffalo Sabres.[2] In the Canucks 45-year NHL history, the team has advanced three times to the Stanley Cup Finals. They were defeated in all three attempts; once in a four game sweep by the Islanders in 1982, and the other two times in a seven game series by the Rangers in 1994, and in 2011 by the Boston Bruins.[3]

The Canucks selected Dale Tallon, a defenceman from the Toronto Marlboros with their first pick, second overall in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. The Canucks also drafted Trevor Linden from the Medicine Hat Tigers in 1988. Linden is currently the all-time leader in games played for the Canucks.[4] The Canucks, all-time, had thirteen top five draft picks but never got the first overall pick. The Canucks are one of the two franchises in the NHL to have drafted two twin brothers in the same year. They drafted Daniel Sedin second overall and Henrik Sedin third overall in 1999.[5]
