Marc Bergevin Tapped To Replace Pierre Gauthier As New Montreal Canadiens General Manager
Patrick Roy will not be the next General Manager of the Montreal Canadiens.
According to Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune, Pierre Gauthier‘s old job will reportedly go to Marc Bergevin, recent assistant General Manager with the Chicago Blackhawks. The former Blackhawks defenseman joined the club’s front office seven years ago.
Confirming Bergevin as the selected candidate, both Bob McKenzie and Darren Dreger of TSN report Pierre McGuire was the runner-up for the gig. It went “right down to the wire” between the analyst/broadcaster and Bergevin, according to Dreger.
