The Anaheim Ducks have placed executive vice president and general manager Bob Murray on administrative leave pending an ongoing investigation into professional conduct, the team announced Tuesday.
“We were recently made aware of allegations of improper professional conduct against Bob Murray,” the team said in a statement.
“Following internal review, we engaged Shephard Mullin to conduct an independent investigation. On the recommendation of their initial findings, we have decided to place Bob on administrative leave pending final results. We will not comment further until the investigation is completed.”
Murray joined the Ducks in 2005 as the senior vice president of hockey operations. He took over as GM in 2008 and has held the position ever since.
