The Las Vegas NHL franchise has been in search of an assistant general manager, and that search may be nearing an end.
According to a report from Guy Flaming of The Pipeline Show on TSN 1260, Brandon Wheat Kings owner, GM and coach Kelly McCrimmon is likely to be named assistant GM in Las Vegas.
The report was backed up on Friday from Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.
Last summer, McCrimmon turned down a job with the Toronto Maple Leafs front office.
It was reported last week that Vegas general manager George McPhee had asked the Washington Capitals for permission to speak with that team’s assistant GM Ross Mahoney.
