The Carolina Hurricanes announced Sunday that executive vice president and assistant general manager Jason Karmanos has been relieved of his duties with the team. Karmanos had served as Carolina's assistant general manager for 15 years.
Karmanos' duties will be assumed by vice president of hockey operations Ron Francis and video scout/hockey operations assistant Darren Yorke.
I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
