The team announced Friday it will retire its fourth number in franchise history.
Bure was a member of the Canucks from 1991-98 and had 478 points (254 goals, 224 assists) in 428 games with the team. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame last year.
The other Canucks' numbers retired are Stan Smyl's No. 12, Trevor Linden's No. 16 and Markus Naslund's No. 19.
