VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) The Vancouver Canucks cleaned out their front office, firing assistant general managers Laurence Gilman and Lorne Henning and director of player personnel Eric Crawford on Thursday.
Canucks president Trevor Linden announced the three were let go ''after a thorough review of the team.''
Gilman, who also held the title of vice president of hockey operations, had been with the team since 2008 when Mike Gillis was hired as general manager.
Gillis was fired a year ago when Linden took over as president, and he was replaced by Jim Benning.
''They have been important members of our staff for a long time and made significant contributions to the success of this team,'' Linden said in a statement. ''Further still, they are great people and respected members of the hockey community.''
