It's been five years since former Vancouver Canucks goaltender Garth Snow was fired as general manager of the New York Islanders, but he remained with the organization for an additional year in another capacity.

Since leaving the Islanders organization, Snow has been available to work for other franchises around the NHL and while he's received calls, nothing has come to fruition.

In a recent interview with The Athletic, Snow expressed his desire to return to a National Hockey League front office.

"I would love to get back with an NHL team if it makes sense for both sides," Snow said.


He added, "I don't know what the future brings when it comes to what kind of role with an organization," Snow said. "Those are conversations you have to have. To me, it always comes back to the word trust - people you trust. And, it's a two-way street."

The 53-year-old spent parts of 12 seasons in the National Hockey League, including three with the Vancouver Canucks where he had a record of 33-52-11, as well as a 2.90 goals against average, a .901 save percentage and six shutouts.

In July 2006, Snow announced his retirement from the NHL and was subsequently named general manager of the New York Islanders, a role he held until June 2018.
