VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks have entered into a new American Hockey League affiliation agreement with the Chicago Wolves.

The deal runs through 2012-13.

"We look forward to this new venture with the Chicago Wolves," Canucks GM Mike Gillis said Monday. "The Canucks have placed great importance and resources in developing prospects and have seen positive results to date, including the likes of Alex Burrows, Ryan Kesler and Chris Tanev.

"The two organizations will work closely to ensure our goals are one in the same and continue to work on developing a strong relationship with our prospects."

Vancouver had previously spent 10 years working with the Manitoba Moose. That team has since moved to St. John's, N.L., and will serve as the affiliate of the Winnipeg Jets.

The Chicago Wolves play their home games at the Allstate Arena in suburban Rosemont, Ill.
