Pierre McGuire is no longer a member of the Ottawa Senators‘ front office, the club confirmed to Postmedia’s Bruce Garrioch on Monday.

The Senators hired McGuire last July on a three-year contract to be their senior vice president of hockey development. He primarily focused on scouting and the club’s AHL affiliate in Belleville.

“We thank Pierre for his contributions and wish him the best in his future endeavours,” the club said in a statement.

McGuire had a lengthy stint as a television analyst with TSN and NBC before joining the Senators organization.

The 60-year-old won a Stanley Cup as an assistant coach with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991-92. He went on to become the head coach of the Hartford Whalers for three seasons. McGuire also had a stint as a Senators scout and assistant coach in 1994.
