The Anaheim Ducks have placed Bob Murray on administrative leave amid an investigation into the conduct of the team's executive vice president and general manager.

"We recently became aware of accusations of improper professional conduct against Bob Murray," the team said in a statement on Tuesday. "After internal review, we enlisted Shephard Mullin to perform an independent investigation. Upon recommendation from their initial findings, we have decided to place Bob on administrative leave pending final results."

The Ducks said assistant GM Jeff Solomon would assume Murray's roles on an interim basis.

Murray is in his 12th season as Ducks GM and was named general manager of the year in 2013-14. He was a senior vice president when the Ducks won the 2007 Stanley Cup.
