VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- The Vancouver Canucks on Thursday named Chris Zimmerman president and CEO.

Zimmerman joins Orca Bay Sports Entertainment, which owns the Canucks, after previously serving as president and CEO of Nike Bauer Hockey Inc. for the past three years.

"After conducting an extensive search, we as an ownership group believe we have found just the right person to lead our executive group and Canucks organization in building the business for the future," Orca Bay Sports Entertainment chairman John McCaw Jr. said.

A native of New York, Zimmerman played four seasons for the University of Vermont hockey team. He later served as an assistant coach at Babson College, helping the Division III program reach the national championship game in 1982.

"As a life-long hockey fan, I have always wanted to work in a city where the community has such a passion for the game," Zimmerman said. "It's exciting to be able to join this organization and help to continue to build the business."

Zimmerman also has served as general manager of Nike Golf USA, where he helped establish the brand as an industry leader, and spent 16 years in a variety of senior advertising positions.
