Looks like Canucks will retain Ron Delorme

From the Vancouver Province:

While it was widely speculated that chief amateur scout Ron Delorme's future was in jeopardy, it has been reported that his 26-year run with the organization as player, scout and department head will be extended in some form under Gillis and that scouts Barry Dean and Mario Marois have not been retained.

The Canucks haven't confirmed the developments and Delorme couldn't be reached for comment, but Gillis has surrounded himself with a staff that could work with the 52-year-old Delorme.

Read the entire article here.

With the Canucks' spotty draft record, Delorme looks to be getting a second chance with Gillis. For someone who thought he was losing his job, I'm sure Delorme is quite happy to return to the fold.

Ballhype: hype it up!
