National Hockely League team Arizona Coyotes have hired Darcy Regier as their new Senior Vice President and Assistant General Manager. 

“We are very pleased Darcy has decided to join us in Arizona,” said Maloney. “Darcy adds intelligence and experience to our management team. The wealth of knowledge he has garnered as a long time General Manager in the National Hockey League is invaluable to us. He is a great addition to our staff.” 

Prior to joining the Coyotes, Regier spent 17 years as the General Manager for the Buffalo Sabres, which was the longest tenure of any GM in the franchise’s 44-year history. Under his guidance, the Sabres advanced to the Stanley Cup Final in 1999 and made four Eastern Conference Final appearances (1998, 1999, 2006 and 2007). 

While with the Sabres, the 58-year-old Regier oversaw all aspects of Buffalo’s hockey operations, as well as the Rochester Americans, its AHL affiliate.  

Previously, the Swift Current, Saskatchewan native served in roles with the New York Islanders as director of hockey administration, assistant coach, and assistant general manager.
