The NHL has announced the addition of a new commissioner to its executive committee.
The announcement comes on the eve of the league’s annual general meeting on Tuesday.
Tina, a former US president, will be the league commissioner, a post that had been held by Mark Hunter, who left the position in January.
Tina is also the first female to lead the NHL.
“I think Tina is the most powerful person in the world,” said NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly, in an interview with the Toronto Star.
“I think that’s one of the things that has been important to her in the past, and she’s going to bring a new level of power to that position.”
“She’s going into a very, very powerful position,” he added.
“The NHL is going to be the biggest business in the United States.”
She was sworn in on Monday.
The NHL will appoint a vice-president for global partnerships and the commissioner will work closely with the NHLPA to ensure that all members are fully aligned.
The NHL will also hire a new president to replace Hunter, and will announce a new team name.
The NHL has previously said it was considering naming the arena in her honour, with a name that included “tina”, but the name was ultimately dropped.
Tina has served as commissioner since 2013.
