The Anaheim Ducks hired veteran executive Rob DiMaio as assistant general manager, the team announced Tuesday. DiMaio will also serve as GM of the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim's AHL affiliate.

DiMaio has been an NHL executive for 14 seasons so far following 19 years in the league as a player. He was with the St. Louis Blues for the last 13 years, most recently as director of player personnel after multiple scouting roles.

"Rob brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our front office," Ducks general manager Pat Verbeek said in a release Tuesday. "He's helped build a Stanley Cup-winning club and he will play an integral role for us in all areas of hockey operations moving forward."

A sixth-round pick by the New York Islanders in the 1987 NHL Draft, DiMaio played 894 games in his career across seven teams. He made nine postseason appearances.

The Ducks parted ways with former assistant GM Dave Nonis in February, shortly after hiring Pat Verbeek as GM. Anaheim went 31-37-14 in 2022, finishing seventh in the Pacific Division.
