DUCK, DUCK, GOOSED! GAUTHIER NAMED NEW TEAM PRESIDENT
Published July 17, 1998
The Mighty Ducks named Pierre Gauthier as the team's new President. Gauthier signed a five-year contract. Gauthier had served as the Ducks' Assistant GM from '93-95, before becoming GM of the Senators (Mighty Ducks). Gauthier's "first order of business" will be to hire a coach. Another task will be "repairing the Ducks' tarnished image before the season begins." Gauthier: "Once we get a coach in place, it's going to stabilize the organization. Then we'll talk about players and the rest of the organization" (Elliott Teaford, L.A. TIMES, 7/17). RADIO-GAGA: The Ducks also announced that they have agreed to a multi-year contract with San Diego-based XTRA-AM for the team's radio rights. XTRA replaces KRLA as the team's flagship station. The team will retain rights to sell most of the radio ad inventory (Mighty Ducks).
