Published March 2, 2024 at 5:59 PM

Kyle Turris, who retired from the NHL in 2022, has taken on a new role within the league, but it doesn't involve hitting the ice.

Kyle Turris Finds A New Role In The NHL

During his 776-game NHL career, Turris played for various teams, including the Phoenix Coyotes, Ottawa Senators, Nashville Predators, and Edmonton Oilers. Surprisingly, he's now working with the Vancouver Canucks, a team he never played for.

"I've been in the Canucks' business intelligence division, and I'm about to go into corporate partnerships. I rotate through the different divisions to gain experience on the business side of an organization to better understand that. And just being in a work and office atmosphere is helpful too because I haven't done that either."

Kyle Turris Sets Goals In Retirement

Turris sees this position as an internship while he completes his business degree. Looking ahead, he's eyeing a broader role in the hockey world beyond just on-ice matters.

"Yeah, I'm not sure about the exact position, but I would like to pursue a position in the hockey world that is more than strictly hockey. I feel like gaining this experience will be very valuable to me in the future, and pursuing something along that line. So, I'm very grateful to the Canucks for giving me this opportunity."


Throughout his career, Turris accumulated 424 points (168 goals, 257 assists) and is fondly remembered for his time with the Ottawa Senators, where he was highly regarded by teammates and fans alike.
