NHL brings Blake into head office
Former NHL defenceman Rob Blake is back in the league, but this time in the front office. The National Hockey League announced Thursday that Blake has joined the league’s hockey operations department, where he’ll work with senior executive vice-president of hockey operations Colin Campbell.
“Rob Blake wasn’t just one of the greatest defencemen ever to play in the NHL, he was one of the game’s most thoughtful players,” Campbell said. “We are fortunate to be able to add someone with his long list of on-ice accomplishments and varied talents to the league’s hockey operations department.”
Blake retired last July after 20 seasons in the NHL.
