The 100-point club has a new member as J.T. Miller became the seventh player in Vancouver Canucks to hit the century mark in a season. Miller, who hit 100 points with an assist against the Vegas Golden Knights, joins Elias Pettersson, Daniel Sedin, Henrik Sedin, Pavel Bure, Alexander Mogilny and Markus Näslund as the only players in franchise history to hit the milestone. On the play, Miller also recorded his 400th career assist, becoming the sixth player from his draft class to achieve the feat.

Miller’s milestone is also the third time in franchise history the Canucks have had back-to-back 100-point players. Bure went back to back in 1992-93 and 1993-94, while Henrik, followed by Daniel, achieved the feat in 2010-11 and 2011-12. As for this instance, Miller followed Pettersson, who recorded his first 100-point season in 2022-23, hitting the 102 mark in 80 games.

With four games remaining, it is unlikely Miller will catch Henrik’s 112-point franchise record, but he does have a chance to finish in the top five. Näslund and Daniel are currently tied for fifth as both record 104-point seasons. With a strong run, Miller could also come close to passing Bure and Moginly, who each had 107-point seasons during their time in Vancouver.
