Canucks fire GM Mike Gillis a day after being eliminated from playoff contention

VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks have fired president and general manager Mike Gillis.

The move comes a day after the team was eliminated from playoff contention.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
