Vancouver, British Columbia • For a few moments, Pavel Bure traveled back in time with the Vancouver Canucks.

One of the most exciting players to ever dress for the team admitted Saturday night that it was an emotional experience to have his No. 10 retired in Vancouver.

"It was a great feeling," said Bure, nicknamed the Russian Rocket, after his jersey was raised to the rafters at Rogers Arena before the Canucks hosted the Toronto Maple Leafs.

During a 12-year career with Vancouver, Florida and the New York Rangers, Bure scored 437 goals and added 342 assists in 702 games.
