The Ottawa Senators fired broadcaster-turned-front office executive Pierre McGuire after one season, TSN reported Monday.
The Senators hired McGuire last July as their senior vice president of player development.
The Senators finished 33-42-7 in 2021-22 and missed the playoffs for a fifth straight season. Ottawa’s 73 points were seventh lowest in the NHL.
McGuire, 60, previously worked with the Senators as an assistant coach during the 1995-96 season. He also held that role with the Pittsburgh Penguins during their Stanley Cup season in 1991-92 and served as an assistant coach, assistant general manager and head coach of the Hartford Whalers.
McGuire shifted gears and served as a color commentator on Montreal Canadiens’ radio broadcasts in 1997. He then transitioned to television with TSN in 2002 before joining NBC Sports as an analyst in 2006.
