Wall Street Journal: Why John Chayka Has Been Successful As Arizona Coyotes GM

The Arizona Coyotes beat the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night 5-2. Their fourth win in a row pulled the Coyotes into a tie for first place in the Pacific Division with the Vegas Golden Knights. Those two teams, along with the Colorado Avalanche, are all tied for second place in the Western Conference.

But you don’t have to look too far back to remember a time when the Coyotes were, well, a lot less good.

Laine Higgins has written about the impact 30-year-old general manager John Chayka has had on the turnaround in the Wall Street Journal, and she joined The Show to talk about how Chayka came to be GM and how he’s performed.
