SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -San Jose Sharks CEO Greg Jamison is stepping down from his job running the day-to-day operations of the club.
The team announced Wednesday that Jamison's last day as CEO will be Oct. 1. A search for a replacement will begin soon. Jamison will remain part of the ownership and will be the team's representative on the NHL's Board of Governors.
The 60-year-old Jamison took over as president of the team in 1996. In 13 seasons, the team has made the playoffs 11 times, made it to the Western Conference final twice and won the Presidents' Trophy in 2009 for the best record in the regular season.
Jamison also hired Doug Wilson as general manager. Wilson has put together a perennial contender, including last year's team that lost to Chicago in the Western Conference final.
