The Anaheim Ducks announced Tuesday that Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray has been placed on administrative leave for what the team is calling an investigation related to his “professional conduct.”
No details of the probe were released. Murray has been with the team since 2005, and has served as general manager since 2008.
“We recently became aware of accusations of improper professional conduct against Bob Murray,” according to a statement from the team. “After internal review, we enlisted Shephard Mullin to perform an independent investigation. Upon recommendation from their initial findings, we have decided to place Bob on administrative leave pending final results.
“In the interim, Vice President of Hockey Operations and Assistant General Manager Jeff Solomon will assume the role of interim general manager. We will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.”
