Canucks hire Cammi Granato as an assistant general manager


VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — The Vancouver Canucks have named Hall of Famer Cammi Granato as an assistant general manager. The 50-year-old moves to the Canucks from the Seattle Kraken, where she’s served as a scout since 2019. Vancouver’s front office has been entirely revamped since former general manager Jim Benning and several other staff were fired in early December. Current president of hockey operations Jim Rutherford now has two women in leadership roles, with Granato joining former player agent Emilie Castonguay. Granato captained the U.S. women’s hockey team that beat Canada to win gold at the 1998 Nagano Olympics and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2010.
