Canadian singer Michael Buble named minority owner of Vancouver Giants @NHL

VANCOUVER, B.C. - Canadian singer Michael Buble has been named a minority owner in the Western Hockey League's Vancouver Giants.

Buble will get a minority stake in the junior club from Giants majority owner Ron Toigo, joining fellow co-owners Sultan Thiara, former Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks coach Pat Quinn, and NHL legend Gordie Howe.

"I couldn't be more thrilled to be a part of such a wonderful team, management and ownership - a group of winners," Buble said in a release Thursday.

Buble and Toigo are old friends who are also part of an investment group that's redeveloping a Vancouver-area golf course.

Buble, a 33-year-old Burnaby, B.C., native, is a Juno and Grammy award-winning singer who has sold more than 20 million records worldwide.

"Having someone of Michael's stature get involved at the ownership level is a real statement on the strength of the Vancouver Giants brand, and that of the Western Hockey League as a whole," Toigo said. "We're very excited to welcome Michael to the organization, and look forward to having his energy and enthusiasm in the Giants family."
