GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -The Phoenix Coyotes introduced Don Maloney as their new general manager Tuesday.
``We're very excited to have Don Maloney assume this critical role with the Coyotes and working with us to create a winning tradition for Coyotes hockey,'' CEO Jeff Shumway said at a news conference. ``He has a great track record of building and developing young talent in organizations and his reputation is impeccable. We are looking forward to a bright future for the Phoenix Coyotes with Don Maloney as our general manager.''
Maloney comes to the Coyotes from the New York Rangers, where he served as assistant general manager and vice president of player personnel. The 48-year-old Maloney, a native of Lindsay, Ontario, spent 10 seasons in the Rangers' front office after 10 1/2 seasons as a left wing for the team.
Terms of Maloney's contract were not disclosed. The club said it was a multiyear deal.
Maloney replaces Michael Barnett, who was fired as part of a front-office shakeup after the Coyotes missed the playoffs for the fourth straight season. Barnett, who served as coach Wayne Gretzky's agent during Gretzky's playing career, spent six seasons with the Coyotes.
