Craig MacTavish will remain with the Edmonton Oilers as Peter Chiarelli’s right-hand man.
“He’ll be the No. 2 guy,” Chiarelli, the Oilers’ new general manager, told the Edmonton Sun in an exclusive interview.
“He’ll be my eyes and ears in all areas. I want to have strong people with strong opinions.”
But Chiarelli met with MacTavish and “explained how much I’d like to have him in the mix,” and apparently the sales pitch worked.
