Predators' David Poile selected as general manager of 2014 US Olympic hockey team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Nashville Predators general manager David Poile will fill the same position for the 2014 U.S. Olympic men's hockey team.

USA Hockey announced the selection Friday. Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero will serve as associate general manager and former Toronto Maple Leafs general manager Brian Burke will be director of player personnel.

They were to be formally introduced at a Saturday news conference, when USA Hockey announces its head coach for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi.

Poile was an associate general manager for the 2010 U.S. team that won a silver medal.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
