The Edmonton Oilers hired Connor McDavid’s longtime agent, Jeff Jackson, as their CEO of hockey operations.

Jackson will report directly to owner Daryl Katz and work closely with president of hockey operations Ken Holland, the former Detroit Red Wings general manager.

Katz called it a big commitment to the organization’s long-term success.

“He (Jackson) brings tremendous industry insight, knowledge and leadership built through a unique career experience that is ideal for this leadership role,” Katz said in a statement. “He understands what it takes to build an elite organization for the modern NHL and will work closely with Ken and our whole team to put the Oilers in the best possible position to win.”
