Born in Medicine Hat Alberta, Trevor Linden played Junior hockey with the Medicine Hat Tigers, where he won two (2) Memorial Cups.  During his amateur career he also won a World Junior gold with Canada in 1988. 

He was drafted second overall by the Vancouver Canucks in 1988, and played for the Canucks from 1988-1998, serving as their captain for seven (7) seasons before being traded to the New York Islanders.  Linden would make his way back to the Canucks finishing the last six (6) years of his career there. 

Trevor was elected President of the National Hockey League Players Association (NHLPA) in 1998, and was part of the negotiations during the 2004-2005 lockout season.  Trevor Linden finished his career with 867 points, and had his number 16 retired by the Vancouver Canucks.
