The Anaheim Ducks have announced that they have placed Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray on administrative leave. The matter is due to an “ongoing investigation related to professional conduct.”

Not much is known about the investigation at this time. He has been with the team since 2005.

“We recently became aware of accusations of improper professional conduct against Bob Murray,” the team said in a statement. “After internal review, we enlisted Sheppard Mullin to perform an independent investigation. Upon recommendation from their initial findings, we have decided to place Bob on administrative leave pending final results.

“In the interim, vice president of hockey operations and assistant general manager Jeff Solomon will assume the role of interim general manager. We will have no further comment until the investigation is complete.”

He has been the Ducks General Manager since November 2008 when he replaced Brian Burke. Before being promoted to the General Manager role, he was the team’s Assistant GM.

This is the second investigation in the NHL. In October, the Chicago Blackhawks completed an investigation that led to General Manager Stan Bowman resigning.

Senior Director of Hockey Administration Al MacIsaac also resigned following an independent investigation into a 2020 sexual assault allegation that involved former video coach Brad Aldrich.
