GLENDALE, ARIZONA --- The Arizona Coyotes announced today that Don Maloney has been relieved of his duties as general manager. An interim general manager will not be named at this time and the search for a new hire - which will be led 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 - will begin immediately. Coyotes Assistant General Managers John Chayka and Chris O’Hearn will manage the Coyotes hockey operations department until a new general manager is selected.

“On behalf of our ownership group and the entire Arizona Coyotes organization, I would like to sincerely thank Don for all of his hard work and the many contributions he made to our organization during his tenure,” said Coyotes President and CEO Anthony LeBlanc. “The Coyotes had some success with Don, but we believe a change in leadership is needed in order to move our franchise forward in a new direction.”

Maloney was hired by the Coyotes on May 29, 2007.
