The jerseys are blue with red stripes on the arms and bottom with a large white V on the front.  Giants logos are on either shoulder, they do differ slightly from the jerseys worn by the Canucks in 1946 as you can see from the original team photo above.

Vancouver opens their 2012/13 WHL schedule on Friday, September 21st in these uniforms against their rivals from the island, the Victoria Royals.

    Looks much better than the current Canucks jerseys do.

    I realize they’re not connected to the old PCL’s Vancouver Canucks, but I think the NHL’s version of that team should also honor them with these jerseys one of these days.

    Why should the Giants tribute the Canucks? The G-Men have already won more championships…

      Only if you consider the NHL Canucks. That’s why they’re honouring the PCHL Canucks.
