John Ferguson was introduced Thursday as Coyotes Assistant General Manager and Tucson Roadrunners General Manager.
Ferguson's role will largely focus on developing the club's prospects. The goal is to build a strong, winning American Hockey League team and provide guidance and advice to the Coyotes on free-agents, trades and the salary cap.
"I'm very intrigued by the future of the franchise," said Ferguson, who was General Manager of the AHL Providence Bruins the previous five years. "There's a clear plan in place. I'm happy to jump aboard, grab an oar and deliver some expertise and experience and learn and grow. There's a clear plan for the future here. I couldn't be more pleased to join the group."
