Dale Tallon Named Florida Panthers General Manager
SUNRISE, FL – The Florida Panthers announced today that Dale Tallon has been named the team’s new general manager, replacing Randy Sexton. Tallon will be introduced at a press conference at the BankAtlantic Center on Tuesday, May 18 at 11 a.m.

“On behalf of the entire organization, we are thrilled and honored to open a new chapter in Florida Panthers franchise history with the hiring of Dale Tallon as general manager,” said Panthers managing partners Cliff Viner and Stu Siegel. “Dale brings with him a proven track record and an impressive franchise-building resume that we believe is the perfect fit for the future of the Panthers organization. We thank Randy Sexton for his service to our organization and appreciate his continued support throughout this transition process.”

“It is with great pleasure and excitement that I join the Florida Panthers,” said Tallon. “I would like to thank Managing Partners Cliff Viner and Stu Siegel, Alternate Governor Bill Torrey and President/COO Michael Yormark for giving me the opportunity to put my mark on this franchise. I look forward to getting to work and will immediately evaluate our club’s framework, as we diligently prepare for the upcoming draft and free agency signing period.”

Tallon, 59, spent 33 years with the Blackhawks organization as a front office executive, player and broadcast personality. He served as Chicago’s general manager from June ’05 to July ’09, and assistant GM from Nov. ’03 to June ‘05. He was responsible for drafting or acquiring many of the Blackhawks’ top players who have contributed to back-to-back Western Conference Finals appearances including Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, Marian Hossa, Patrick Sharp, Kris Versteeg, John Madden and Brian Campbell.

A defenseman, Tallon was Vancouver’s first-round selection (2nd overall) in the 1970 NHL Entry Draft. The Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec native played in 642 NHL contests with Vancouver (1970-73), Chicago (1973-78) and Pittsburgh (1978-80) registering 336 points (98-238-336) and 568 PIM. Tallon recorded a career-high 17 goals in 69 games with Vancouver during the 1971-72 season and appeared in the 1971 and 1972 NHL All-Star Games. In 1972, Tallon was picked as an alternate for Team Canada at the 1972 Summit Series against the USSR. After retiring following the 1979-80 season, Tallon served as color analyst for Chicago radio and television broadcasts for 16 seasons.

Most recently, Tallon spent the 2009-10 season serving as a senior advisor of hockey operations for the Blackhawks. He also served four years (1998-2002) as director of player personnel before returning to the radio and television booth prior to the 2002-03 season. Tallon and his wife, Meg, have two daughters, Lauren and Kristen.
