VANCOUVER (CP) - Lorne Henning has been named the Vancouver Canucks director of player personnel, the NHL team said Thursday.

Henning, 54, was the Canuck's professional scout last season. He joined the team last September after being an assistant coach with the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim from 2002 to 2004.

Vancouver's player personnel job has been vacant since Bob Murray left the team last summer to become Anaheim's vice-president of hockey operations.

Henning spent nine years playing with the New York Islanders and helped the team win Stanley Cups in 1980 and 1981 as a player and in 1982 and 1983 as an assistant coach.

In addition to the Islanders and Ducks, Henning has also had coaching stints with the Minnesota North Stars and Chicago Blackhawks.
