Panthers fire GM Dudley
TSN.ca Staff

5/24/2004
The Florida Panthers have fired general manager Rick Dudley. He has been offered another position within the organization.

Multiple sources have told TSN that former Panthers head coach Mike Keenan will likely take over as general manager with long-time friend and former Ottawa Senators head coach Jacques Martin taking over as head coach. Keenan and Martin have a long history together dating back to the Peterborough Petes and St. Lawrence University.

The mess just keeps on brewing in Miami... Mike gets fired, Dudley hired, Panthers bring in young talent through trades and the draft and Iron Mike is brought back with little patience for young players...

This is sure to be interesting.
