The team replaced the two men with former New York Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton. These moves come about six months after the Canadiens advanced to the Stanley Cup Finals.
Montreal is struggling this season. The team is off to a 6-14-2 record.
The Canadiens have just 14 points. The 14 points are tied for the fifth-fewest in the league since the start of the season.
“On behalf of myself and the organization, I wish to thank Marc Bergevin, Trevor Timmins, and Paul Wilson for their passion and engagement towards our Club over the last years,” Canadiens Owner, President, and Chief Executive Officer Geoff Molson said in a statement. Their relentless work allowed our fans to experience many memorable moments, including last summer’s playoff run that culminated with the Stanley Cup Final. We wish them all the success they deserve in the pursuit of their careers. I think, however, that the time has come for a leadership change within our hockey operations department that will bring a new vision and should allow our fans and partners to continue cheering for a championship team.”
Wilson served as the team’s Senior Vice President, Public Affairs and Communications. A search is underway to find their new GM.
If the Canadiens do not start to produce, the team will make additional changes to try to change the culture of the team. Montreal is the second-to-last team in the Atlantic Division.
Only the Ottawa Senators have a worse record with a 4-14-1 record in 19 games.
