The Anaheim Ducks draft table is expected to have a new face among the group on Friday.

Former Canucks general manager Dave Nonis and Ducks general manager Brian Burke are working on the final details to add Nonis as a senior advisor.

It's believed Nonis, who worked with Burke in Vancouver, will have the freedom to leave his position in Anaheim abruptly if a more attractive offer from another team comes along.

A Vancouver native, Nonis served as senior vice president and director of hockey operations with the team for six seasons prior to becoming general manager. 

Nonis, who was heavily courted by the Toronto Maple Leafs wouldn't get into the specifics as to what lured him to Anaheim other than to say, "this opportunity was the best fit for me and my family"

Prior to joining the Canucks, Nonis served as the NHL's manager of hockey operations for four seasons. He helped finalize sections of the league's 1995 collective bargaining agreement and also worked with the league's arbitration team.
