Watch the full interview with Trevor Linden here
Former Vancouver Canuck Trevor Linden says the team has not approached him with any offers and there are no imminent announcements.
There have been rumours circulating suggesting Linden may be given a role within the Canucks organization in light of the team’s recent struggles and elimination from the playoff round.
“When teams struggle, there is lots of speculation. I have been rumoured to be doing a lot of things,” said Linden on Global BC this morning.
Linden says he is enjoying running his business at the moment, but does not exclude any possibilities.
“I have always said that if the opportunity is right and time is right, I’d have to seriously consider it,” he says.
Linden says he has always had interest in coaching and the tactical aspect of the game.
He also says he does not plan on leaving Vancouver any time soon.
“I love this city. It means a lot to me. I am not prepared to leave here.”
Linden is originally from Medicine Hat, Alberta.
He played for the Canucks from 1988 to 1998, and again from 2001 to 2008.
His No.16 jersey was retired in 2008.
