VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) — On Friday, Canucks’ fans were invited to wager on whether or not Jim Benning will return as the team’s general manager next year.

In a release, the British Columbia Lottery Corporation asked: “After making a splash at the NHL Draft in his trade for J.T. Miller, and on the eve of NHL Free Agency, will Jim Benning’s bold moves lead to him returning as the Vancouver Canucks’ General Manager in 2020?”

They directed anyone interested in gambling on Benning’s fate to place their bets online, saying the odds were 50/50.
