Ron Hextall Becomes New Candidate For Vancouver's New GM
From the Vancouver Suns Iain MacIntyre:
2 things I'm hearing: from the Canucks, nothing on Torts; from elsewhere, Ron Hextall in the mix for Van GM job.— Iain MacIntyre (@imacVanSun) April 17, 2014
Hextall is currently with the Flyers as their assistant general manager and director of hockey operations. It was thought last year when he came to Philadelphia from the Kings organization that he might one day replace GM Paul Holmgren.
I do want to be a general manager, Hextall said, per NHL.com. I talked to [Holmgren] about that when we talked about this job. If something else becomes available, I at least want to look at it. He was absolutely fine with that. My goal still hasnt changed in terms of where I want this to all end.
