"We're pleased to have completed the sale and are delighted that Mark has decided to remain with Nike," said Lee Bird, president of Nike's subsidiaries group. "Mark leaves Bauer Hockey in excellent shape with record revenue and pretax income and strong positioning as the No. 1 brand in the marketplace. We look forward to benefiting from Mark's leadership talents in other roles at Nike."

A former competitive runner, coach and educator, Duggan is an experienced leader with more than 26 years at Nike."Bauer has a great future led by innovative product, brand leadership and a strong, motivated team that I have enjoyed being a part of and leading," Duggan said.

"Prior to the acquisition, we were on a performance tear that I hope the team will continue. I will always have a passion for hockey and the Bauer people and brand. But my heart belongs to Nike, where I've spent most of my career. I'm excited to return to Nike and tackle new opportunities."
