DUCK, DUCK, GOOSED! GAUTHIER NAMED NEW TEAM PRESIDENT

          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).
