The Vancouver Canucks have officially announced the hiring of Trevor Linden as named President of Hockey Operations and Alternate Governor of the franchise.

Linden returns to lead the team that he played on for 16 seasons, including seven as team captain.

"It's my honor to officially welcome Trevor Linden home in his new role as President of Hockey Operations for the Canucks," said Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini. "We believe in Trevor's leadership abilities. His 20 years of NHL experience including seven as team captain, his role as NHLPA President, community leader and businessman offers a very special skill set; one that will positively shape the direction of this club in the future."

In his role, Linden will be responsible for all hockey operations, including the coaching and scouting staffs, player procurement and development, and minor league affiliations and operations.

"Today is a real honor," Linden said. "I came to Vancouver 26 years ago and I have never left. I love this city. It is my home and the Canucks have always been part of my family.

"I'm passionate about the Canucks and I want to win -- just like our fans. I believe in this team and share the organization's commitment to excellence on and off of the ice. I am looking forward to getting started -- getting to know everyone in the organization, and working together to win the Stanley Cup for this great city and Province."

Linden will officially be introduced at a news conference at 1:25pm ET.
