MONTREAL ? The Montreal Canadiens have fired general manager Pierre Gauthier after a dismal season.

The Canadiens are last in the Eastern Conference with a 29-34-14 record.

Team owner Geoff Molson will hold a news conference Thursday to discuss the move. The club says in a release the search for a new general manager "is underway."

Gauthier was hired as GM and executive vice-president in February 2010, taking over from Bob Gainey.

He joined the organization in July 2003 when he was appointed director of professional scouting.
