Don Maloney Fired As Arizona Coyotes General Manager
The Arizona Coyotes announced today that former GM Don Maloney has been relieved of his duties.
So far, there is no word on who the next GM will be, but the search has begun, lead by Coyotes Majority Owner, Chairman and Governor Andrew Barroway, Alternate Governor Gary Drummond (who oversees the Coyotes hockey operations department) and President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc.
The move ends Maloney’s nine-year tenure as general manager of the Coyotes, which made the playoffs for three consecutive years (2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12) since he was hired in 2007. This year would mark the fourth straight season Arizona has missed out on the postseason.
It’s also been known for a while that the Arizona Coyotes have gone through a lot of ownership turmoil within the organization. It’ll be interesting to see what the future holds for this Coyotes team.
