WHISTLER, B.C. (CP) - There will soon be a new president of the NHL Players' Association.

Trevor Linden announced Tuesday at the NHLPA's summer meeting that he will not seek re-election for the position he has held since June 1998.

The NHLPA's new executive committee is expected to be announced Wednesday.

Linden, a 36-year-old native of Medicine Hat, Alta., is an unrestricted free agent. He played all 82 games for the Vancouver Canucks last season, recording seven goals and nine assists for 16 points in his 17th NHL season.

Since entering the league in 1988, Linden has 356 goals and 474 assists for 830 points in 1,243 career games with the Canucks, New York Islanders, Montreal Canadiens and Washington Capitals.

Linden helped broker the deal last summer that ended the year-long NHL lockout that wiped out the 2004-05 season.



Who should take over as president???

Meh... the lockout it what made me dislike this guy. He continually tried to play the fans with the ridiculous "we tried, but it seems the NHL doesn't want to budge" garbage, as if we were too stupid to know a hint of what the lock out was all about, and what was going on, or their stance on certain issues.
