Arizona's Chayka becomes youngest GM in NHL history

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) The NHL has followed Major League Baseball's analytical trend in recent years, relying more on advanced statistics to evaluate players and tendencies.

The Arizona Coyotes boosted their analytical abilities before last season by hiring John Chayka, co-founder of a hockey analytics firm, as their assistant general manager.

The Coyotes took another, bolder step toward a "Moneypuck" mentality on Thursday, announcing that the 26-year-old Chayka has been promoted to general manager, making him the youngest GM in league history and first with a primarily analytics background.
