Head coach to take over after Cape Breton Screaming Eagles fire general manager

SYDNEY, N.S. - The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles have fired their general manager after earning seven points in their first 11 games.

Head coach Ron Choules will take over on an interim basis from Pierre Roux of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League team.

Roux worked for two seasons as the squad's assistant general manager before taking over as general manager in May 2011.

Team president Andre Cote announced the change Monday.

In a statement, Cote said the club was not seeing enough progress — and moving forward without Roux at the helm was in its best interest.

The Screaming Eagles are 15th among 18 teams in the league.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
