The Vancouver Canucks announced Wednesday  that former NHL player Scott Mellanby will join the club's front office as a consultant to general manager Mike Gillis and the hockey operations department. 

"We are pleased that Scott has agreed to join our Hockey Operations department, his experiences in our league over two decades as a player will be a great asset to me and our entire department," said Gillis in a statement.

"Scott displayed strong leadership skills and character throughout his NHL career; these are the same qualities we are looking for as we build our team."

Mellanby, 41, played 20 years in the NHL with five different teams.

"I think Mike valued my opinion and my experience in the league," Mellanby told the Canadian Press. "I was fortunate to play 20 years, through a lot of different situations from teams like the Philadelphia Flyers, who have been around for a while, to expansion teams.

"I played with a lot of players. I think I have a lot of things to offer."

Mellanby joins the Canucks after retiring as a player following the 2006-07 season. He played 1,431 games and recorded 840 points and 2,479 penalty minutes with the Philadelphia Flyers, Edmonton Oilers, Florida Panthers, Atlanta Thrashers and St. Louis Blues.
