According to Nick “Man of Many Faces” Kypreos of Sportsnet, Hall of Fame forward Luc Robitaille is in the running for the Montreal Canadiens’ general manager job.

Robitaille is currently an executive with the team he spent of his career with, the Los Angeles Kings. (His title is President, Business Operations, Alternate Governor.)
He speaks French, English and a tiny bit of Swahili.
