The #ArizonaCoyotes have replaced #DonMaloney, and it's with a guy you probably wouldn't expect. 26 year-old #JohnChayka, who was Maloney's assistant GM this past season, was promoted to the head position, while Head Coach #DaveTippett was promoted to the team's Executive Vice President role. In 2009, #Chayka founded and was the Director of Hockey Operations at Stathletes, a hockey analytics firm. The team hired him to run a stat-based operation, as the #NHL begins its trek towards the analytics age. It's a bit of a gamble, but it's a necessary one for a team fledgling as badly as the #Coyotes are. It'll definitely be a fun experiment to watch, that's for sure.
