The NHL team also announced Bob Murray as his replacement on an interim basis for the balance of the regular season.

“Leading the team to a Stanley Cup and three conference final appearances, he has accomplished so much in Anaheim,” Murray said of the 62-year-old bench boss in a statement. “Difficult decisions need to be made when times are tough, and our play has clearly been unacceptable.

“We have a tradition of success in Anaheim and we need to get back to that.”

The Ducks entered play Sunday in last place in the Western Conference with a 21-26-9 record.
