R.I.P Krutov

It is with sadness that the Vancouver Canucks learned today of the passing of former Canuck Vladimir Krutov.

Krutov appeared in his only season in the National Hockey League with the Vancouver Canucks, becoming one of the first Soviet-born players to play in the NHL. He registered 34 points (11-23-34) in 61 games in the 1989.90 campaign.

The Vancouver Canucks sends our deepest condolences to the Krutov family.
