The search for the new Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager is over after former Buffalo Sabres GM Darcy Regier was named Senior Vice President and Assistant General Manager of the Coyotes on Thursday.
"We are very pleased Darcy has decided to join us in Arizona," said general manager Don Maloney in the team's press release. "Darcy adds intelligence and experience to our management team. The wealth of knowledge he has garnered as a long time general manager in the National Hockey League is invaluable to us. He is a great addition to our staff."
Before joining the Coyotes, Regier spent 17 years as Sabres GM, taking Buffalo to four Eastern Conference Final appearance and the 1999 Stanley Cup Final. He was the longest tenured GM in Sabres history.
The 57-year-old signed a multi-year deal to replace Brad Treliving, who departed to Valley to become the GM of the Calgary Flames. Maloney had his eye on Regier throughout the hiring process.
Regier was fired on November 13 after a 4-15-1 start.
