Elliotte Friedman: Capitals stymied Vegas Golden Knights from interviewing assistant GM Ross Mahoney (Updated)
Update: This afternoon, Elliotte Friedman reached out to RMNB with new information he received today. “Someone reached out to dispute that Washington blocked a Mahoney interview from happening,” Friedman said. “I went through my notes last summer and a different story was told, but this person was adamant a ‘window’ to talk to Mahoney was granted and, for whatever reason, he was not hired.”
Original article: Thursday, Elliotte Friedman posted his latest 31 Thoughts column on Sportsnet and included another interesting tidbit about the Washington Capitals’ front office.
According to Friedman, the Caps were either unhelpful or obstructed an interview between the Vegas Golden Knights and Capitals assistant general manager Ross Mahoney.
