Pavel Bure SpeakerRetired Vancouver Canucks star Pavel Bure, also known as the “Russian Rocket” returned to town on Thursday to an especially warm welcome at Rogers Area as he was honored during the team’s game against the Edmonton Oilers.

The Hockey Hall of Famer was said to be “officially” in Vancouver to attend a gala dinner Friday night for Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini who is being honored by the Vancouver Chinatown Lions Club, according to the Vancouver Sun. Bure also took time to visit Children’s Hospital Thursday afternoon and made an appearance on the “Canucks for Kids” telethon Thursday night.

There was media speculation that his jersey might be retired, but Bure noted, “I came here because Francesco Aquilini asked me to come for his special event. Francesco showed me great respect when he came to see me during the Hall of Fame induction (last November) and I spent some time with him.”
