Penguins’ Patrik Allvin is the “frontrunner” for Canucks GM job: report

In an interview with Sportsnet 650 this morning, Seravalli said he believes Pittsburgh Penguins assistant general manager Patrik Allvin is the “frontrunner” for the job. Yesterday, Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet reported that the Canucks had received permission from the Penguins to talk to Allvin. Rutherford worked with Allvin for six seasons in Pittsburgh, and Allvin briefly served as interim general manager after Rutherford resigned last January.
