David Poile of the Nashville Predators tied the record for wins by an NHL general manager when the Nashville Predators defeated the Winnipeg Jets 6-5 on Tuesday.

Poile, who has been the GM of the Predators since their inaugural season in 1998-99, won his 1,319th game, tying Glen Sather for the most in NHL history.

Poile, 68, has a record of 1,319-1,028-145 (192 ties) in 2,684 games in 34 seasons with the Predators and Washington Capitals. He is 725-574-145 (60 ties) in 1,504 games with Nashville and was 594-454-132 (ties) in 15 seasons with Washington from 1982-97.

The Predators reached the Stanley Cup Final last season, losing in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Poile was named 2017 NHL General Manager of the Year and has been a finalist four times since the award's inception in 2010, the most of any GM.
