PITTSBURGH - Tom Fitzgerald is returning to the Pittsburgh Penguins' front office in the newly created position of assistant to general manager Ray Shero.

Fitzgerald, a former NHL player, was the team's director of player personnel before becoming an assistant coach after Dan Bylsma replaced Michel Therrien as coach on Feb. 15.

Since the Penguins won the Stanley Cup on June 12, Fitzgerald had been deciding whether to stay in coaching or return to the front office.

Dan MacKinnon will take over as director of player personnel, overseeing the team's pro scouting.

Fitzgerald will be in charge of tracking prospects in junior hockey, college, Europe and the Penguins' AHL affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
