Montreal Will Introduce Marc Bergevin As Their GM This Afternoon

from NHL.com,

The Montreal Canadiens have tabbed former NHL player Marc Bergevin as its new GM and will introduce him in a Wednesday afternoon press conference at the team’s practice facility.

Bergevin, 46, will replace the fired Pierre Gauthier, who was let go near the end of the 2011-12 season, and become the 17th GM in Canadiens history. The Canadiens not only missed the Stanley Cup Playoffs this season, but finished last in the Eastern Conference and No. 28 in the League with a 31-35-16 record.

A Montreal native, Bergevin has spent the past seven seasons in Chicago’s front office. This past season, Bergevin was the assistant GM under Stan Bowman.

Kinda surprised they didn’t do with someone with more of a pedigree.

He has a pretty good pedigree with Chicago.  Better than Burke with his phony Irish tough guy act LOL.
