Clancey most recently worked in the NHL as a pro scout with the Calgary Flames, though his career extends beyond that.
The 52-year-old joins the Canucks after spending most of his NHL career with the Pittsburgh Penguins between 2007 and 2021, where he last served as the team's director of player personnel from 2019 to February 2021.
