The Arizona Coyotes have signed John Ferguson to be the club’s assistant general manager, GManager Bill Armstrong announced Wednesday.

Ferguson will also serve as the GM of the Tucson Roadrunners, the Coyotes’ American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate.

“We are very pleased to name John as our new assistant general manager,” Armstrong said in a press release. “John is extremely knowledgeable about the game and with 20-plus years in the NHL, brings a tremendous amount of experience to our hockey operations department.”

Ferguson joins the Coyotes by way of the Boston Bruins. He spent the last seven seasons in Boston serving as the organization’s Executive Director of Player Personnel, as well as serving as the GM of the Providence Bruins (AHL). While in Boston, Ferguson scouted the amateur and professional levels looking to add both prospects and roster players to the organization.

“I’m very excited to join the Coyotes organization,” Ferguson said. “I’m grateful to Bill (Armstrong), Xavier Gutierrez and Mr. Meruelo for providing me with this opportunity.

“I’m excited about the Coyotes vision and plan for the future and look forward to helping Bill build a long-term winning team in the Valley.”

With a wealth of experience in hockey operations, Ferguson becomes the first assistant general manager on Armstrong’s staff.

Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
