When the Arizona Coyotes fired Don Maloney earlier this month, Les Jackson’s name was immediately raised as a potential candidate to become the new general manager.
Jackson is the highly regarded assistant GM in Dallas. He’s been with the Stars dating back to their days in Minnesota.
And, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, Jackson will remain with the Stars.
The Coyotes have promised that a new GM will be hired “well before” the draft in late June.
