It appears the Arizona Coyotes' general manager search has come to an end.

St. Louis Blues assistant GM and director of amateur scouting Bill Armstrong is set to be named the team's new general manager, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

The Coyotes had reportedly interviewed and spoke to several candidates over the summer - including Pierre McGuire, Sean Burke, and Jason Karmanos - since their previous GM, John Chayka, terminated his contract in July.

Armstrong has been with the Blues organization since 2004, earning the assistant GM title in 2018. The 50-year-old previously spent nine seasons playing in the AHL and IHL and has four years of coaching experience in the AHL and ECHL.
