PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The Aquilini Investment Group took full control of the Vancouver Canucks and their arena Monday.

The NHL's board of governors approved the group's purchase of the remaining 50 percent of the team and GM Glance from Seattle businessman John McCaw.

The Aquilini group, owned by Vancouver businessmen Francesco, Roberto and Paolo Aquilini, bought the first 50 percent of the team and the arena in November 2004.
