For the first time since the late ’90s, Pierre McGuire may soon be back with an NHL organization.
After the recent departure of John Chaca, Arizona Coyotes is currently discovering himself as a general manager in search, and it seems that McGuire is mixed for this character.
Chris Johnston of SportsNet said in the Canadian ‘Headlines’ section of Hockey Night Canada on Saturday, “Broadcaster Co Yo, who has worked at NBC for a long time, had some conversations with Tess. “Another name revealed this week was Jason Carmanos, assistant GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins.”
Known as a McGuire broadcaster, the 599-year-old spent some six seasons in the NHL in the 1990s, serving as Pittsburgh Penguins scout and assistant coach – winning the Stanley Cup with the club. Assistant Coach in 1992 – Hartford Whales Assistant Coach, Head Coach and General Manager and before serving as a scout for Ottawa Senators.
After Chayaka left the desert, Steve Sullivan took over as GM while the club ran their search.
“The funny thing about me here is that Steve Sullivan, who is doing this work on an interim basis, is taking the call right now,” Johnston said.
“It’s kind of unknown off-season, and I know he’s getting a lot of interest from goalkeeper Darcy Koemper from a business perspective. So, in the background of this GM search he is also talking about business with some teams. “
