Phoenix's Maloney named NHL GM of the year @NHLdotcom

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -The NHL says Don Maloney of the Phoenix Coyotes has been chosen as the league's top general manager this season.

Maloney became the award's first winner on Wednesday during a meeting of the NHL's general managers at the Stanley Cup finals.

Voting was conducted after the season among the league's 30 GMs and a panel of NHL executives, and print and broadcast media. Maloney edged out fellow finalists George McPhee of the Washington Capitals and David Poile of the Nashville Predators.

The Coyotes endured a difficult season in which the team's future in Arizona was unsettled. Phoenix, under new coach Dave Tippett - who was hired by Maloney - set franchise records with 50 wins and 107 points and made the playoffs for the first time since 2002.
