Canadiens Looking For French GM: Here are 3 Likely Candidates

It’s been no secret that once the Montreal Canadiens and Marc Bergevin didn’t reach an agreement on a contract extension during the off-season that he would likely not retain his role as general manager after his contract is up.

The big secret, however, is who Geoff Molson has been looking at to replace Marc Bergevin when that time comes.

It’s being reported that the next general manager of the Montreal Canadiens will be French.

For a moment, it looked like now former Montreal Canadiens assistant general manager Scott Mellanby was going to be the man to take over.
