Following last night’s 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Detroit Red Wings, the Edmonton Oilers have fired GM Peter Chiarelli.
Chiarelli has been Edmonton’s GM since April 2015 but now follows coach Todd McLellan out the door. Chiarelli and McLellan were supposed to usher in a new era for the Oilers combined with Connor McDavid, but both tenures are over after just three-plus years. Chiarelli was hired after being fired as the GM of the Boston Bruins following a nine-year stint.
