The National Hockey League (NHL) today named Anaheim Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray a finalist for 2013-14 NHL General Manager of the Year. This is the second consecutive season Murray has been nominated. Murray joins Dean Lombardi of the Los Angeles Kings and Marc Bergevin of the Montreal Canadiens as the three finalists for the top GM award this season.

Voting for this award was conducted among the 30 club general managers and a panel of NHL executives, print and broadcast media at the conclusion of the Second Round of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The winner will be announced Tuesday, June 24, during the 2014 NHL Awards from Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas. The 2014 NHL Awards will be broadcast by NBCSN in the United States and CBC in Canada.

Over the past several years, Murray has revamped the majority of the Ducks roster and expanded the club’s prospect pool. Earlier this year, the Ducks were selected as The Hockey News’ No. 1 team in Future Watch 2014, which grades the prospects and player development of all 30 NHL teams. Of the top 100 prospects named in Future Watch 2014, the Ducks have three in the top 30 and four overall. Anaheim held the No. 2 spot in Future Watch 2013.

Under Murray’s guidance, the Ducks have won the last two Pacific Division titles, the first time the Ducks have won the division in consecutive years. The 2013-14 club finished with a record of 54-20-8, the best mark in club history. Anaheim finished with the top record in the Western Conference for the first time in franchise history and set season records for standings points (116), wins (54) and win/points percentage (.707), while also leading the league in goals (263) for the first time in club history. Murray was also a finalist for NHL General Manager of the Year in 2012-13, when the Ducks finished the regular season with the third-best record in the NHL (30-12-6, second in the West) and best win/points percentage in club history (.688, surpassed this year).

Murray signed a four-year contract extension with the Ducks on May 19, 2014 and is now under contract through the 2019-20 season. He is in his 39th consecutive season in the National Hockey League, his sixth in his current role with the Ducks. He was named to the position on Nov. 12, 2008 after spending the previous three-plus seasons as the club’s Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations.
