It was announced on the team’s website that Director of Hockey Operation, Brian Burke, had relieved Feaster and assistant GM John Weisbrod of their duties Thursday.
Burke said he is going to serve as the interim GM until he hires a new manager, a process he says that he has already started. He says he has “already asked for permission to speak to one candidate” and also said he going to ask for permission from other teams to speak to other candidates later today. Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet said that the Leafs were not the one team that Burke had asked permission of to speak with a candidate.
Burke went on to say Feaster was “a good man”
