Ducks place VP and GM Bob Murry on administrative leave pending investigation

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks have placed executive vice-president and general manager Bob Murray on administrative leave pending “an ongoing investigation related to professional conduct.”

The Ducks said in a statement Tuesday that the team became aware of “accusations of improper professional conduct” against Murray and hired law firm Sheppard Mullin to perform an independent investigation.

The Ducks said they placed Murray on leave on the recommendation of the initial findings of the investigation “pending final results.”

The team says vice-president of hockey operations and assistant GM Jeff Solomon will act as interim general manager.

The Ducks’ statement did not give details of the allegations against Murray. The team said it will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.

Murray has been with the Ducks’ front office since 2005.
