VANCOUVER -- The Vancouver Canucks have named Jim Benning as their new general manager. Benning is the first significant hire made by new Canucks president of hockey operations Trevor Linden, who was handed the franchises reins after the team missed the playoffs for the first time in six years following a disastrous 2013-14 campaign. Benning spent the last eight seasons with the Boston Bruins, including seven as the clubs assistant general manager. A former Canucks defenceman during his playing days, the 51-year-old Benning is the 11th general manager in franchise history -- a post he has never held with an NHL club. "Jim brings a wealth of hockey experience as a builder and talent evaluator that will benefit this team for years to come," said Linden in a statement. "We are aligned on how we want to build this team and Jims level of commitment to building a championship team is exciting. I look forward to re-introducing him to Vancouver on Friday." The Edmonton native replaces Mike Gillis, who was fired as Vancouvers president and general manager a day after the club was eliminated from playoff contention with three games left in the regular season. Bennings first order of business with the Canucks will be to hire a new head coach after Linden axed John Tortorella earlier this month following one tumultuous campaign. Benning will also have to prepare for next months NHL draft and assess a roster that Tortorella accused of being "stale" at his end-of-season press conference. Apart from helping to shape a Bruins team that defeated the Canucks in the 2011 Stanley Cup final, Bennings managerial resume also includes 12 seasons with Buffalo Sabres, with eight of those spent as that clubs director of amateur scouting. Selected sixth overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 1981 NHL draft, Benning played nine seasons with Toronto and Vancouver, collecting 52 goals and 191 assists in 610 career games.

Walkers 28 points propelled the Hornets to their season-high fifth straight win, a 110-82 dismantling of the Knicks that extended New Yorks franchise- record skid to 15 games. Walker needed just 28 minutes to record his game-best total, and the New York City native has helped offset an injury to Al Jefferson by averaging 30.2 points during the win streak. Bismack Biyombo delivered season highs of 14 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which received 15 points from P.J. Hairston and 14 from Brian Roberts in the rout. For the Knicks, whose last eight defeats have come by double digits, this may have been rock-bottom in a season of low points. They trailed by as many as 45 in the second half before reducing the deficit as the Hornets pulled their starters in the fourth quarter. Quincy Acy was one bright spot for New York, finishing with 18 points on 6- of-9 shooting. Tim Hardaway Jr. and Shane Larkin had 15 and 12 points, respectively. Charlotte held just a 21-18 lead after one quarter and a 30-27 edge early in the second, then proceeded to paste the Knicks over the remainder of the first half. The Hornets outscored New York by a whopping 32-4 margin over the final 8:35 of the period to enter the break owning a commanding 62-31 advantage. The Hornets began to pull away behind a 13-22 run, which New Yorks Langston Galloway temporarily stopped with a jumper with 4:31 to go in the quarter to bring the Knicks within 43-31.dddddddddddd New York didnt score again for the rest of the first half, with Charlotte closing the frame out on a 19-0 tear. Walker did most of the damage, dropping in 10 points during the surge to finish with 20 for the initial two quarters. The Knicks offensive ineptitude extended beyond the stoppage, as they went 5- of-21 from the floor during a 13-point third quarter in which the Hornets continued to pour it on. Biyombo finished off a 9-0 sequence with an alley-oop dunk to put Charlotte up by 40, 73-33, near the midway mark of the third. It was a 45-point spread entering the fourth when two Jason Maxiell free throws made the score 89-44. With the Hornets fielding their second and third-team units, New York ended the game on a 16-7 run to make the final outcome slightly more respectable. Game Notes Charlotte is 13-6 this season when Walker scores 18 points or more and 2-18 when he hasnt hit that mark ... The Hornets are on their first four-game road winning streak since Jan. 18-28, 2011 ... Hairston (illness) and forward Cody Zeller (strained right shoulder) both returned to action for Charlotte after missing Thursdays win at Toronto ... The Knicks were whistled for 24 fouls, which led to a 25-of-33 performance at the foul line for the Hornets. ' ' '
