AP - Sports

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -- The Vancouver Canucks will honor members of the team that made it to Game 7 of the 1994 Stanley Cup finals when they host the Ottawa Senators next month in the outdoor Heritage Classic.

Trevor Linden, Kirk MacLean, Cliff Ronning, Jyrki Lumme, Gino Odjick, Dave Babych and Geoff Courtnall are among things expected to be in attendance for the game at B.C. Place Stadium on March 2.

In addition, former head coach and general manager Pat Quinn and former assistant coach Stan Smyl are also expected to be on hand.

One player not on the list of attendees is Pavel Bure, who had his No. 10 retired by the Canucks earlier this season.

Vancouver was beaten in the 1994 Cup finals by the New York Rangers, who earned their first championship since 1940.
