NHL officials announced Monday they have hired former NHL Players Association executive director Bill Daly to be an associate general manager.
Daly was an executive with the Players’ Union when he led the union’s front office and oversaw the players’ grievance process in 2014.
Daly has also been an executive at the NHLPA since 2006.
The move brings Daly’s experience to the organization.
Daly will be in charge of the NHL’s salary cap and player transactions.
The move brings the organization’s front offices compensation under the salary cap in excess of $300 million per year, and the team will be able to make moves on the free agent market.
Daly is also a former executive director for the United States Olympic Committee.
