Just a few hours ago, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced that they were cleaning house with upper management:

The Penguins have relieved President of Hockey Operations Brian Burke, General Manager Ron Hextall, and Assistant General Manager, Chris Pryor of their duties, it was announced today by Fenway Sports Group.



The Penguins had a disappointing season and didn't like the direction this management group was taking them, so with the team still hoping to compete during the Crosby and Malkin era, they want to go in a new direction.


Burke, who has been on a few teams now during his career, has already found himself a new job, just hours after being fired.

According to Insider Rob Rossi of The Athletic, Brian Burke will be going back on television for the Canadian networks.


Ron Hextall had 1-year remaining on contract that paid him $3.5M annually — though his deal was backloaded.

Brian Burke is headed back to TV in Canada.
