TSN’s Pierre LeBrun confirmed on Monday that the Penguins have interviewed between 10 and 12 candidates via videoconference for the general manager position, and that Marc Bergevin is one of them.
Bergevin has been an advisor to Los Angeles Kings general manager Rob Blake since January 2022. He was fired from the Montreal Canadiens in November 2021, after serving as the team’s general manager.
There’s still no word on who will be going through to the next round of interviews, but there are plenty of rumors circulating about the names of potential candidates.
“Some of the names that I believe are involved in the #LetsGoPens [GM] search: Jason Botterill, Marc Bergevin, Ryan Martin, who is the assistant GM of the #NYR, John Chayka … and Mathieu Darche of the Tampa Bay Lightning.”
