Happy Birthday to Barry Wilkins

Found this on the history page.

You'll all remember that he scored the first Canucks NHL goal.

Wilkins was a decent defensive D-man on the Canucks from 1970 till '74.
He lived on my brothers Vancouver Sun newspaper route in West Van during that time.That was a pretty big deal for us Canuck fanatics.
He was traded to the Penguins for Ab Demarco then played for a couple of years in the WHA.
