Shero names Chuck Fletcher as new Assistant GM

On Friday (7/14) the Pittsburgh Penguins named former Ducks’ assistant GM Chuck Fletcher as Ray Shero’s new assistant.

Eddie Johnston, who was the Assistant General Manager under former GM Craig Patrick will move to the position of Senior Advisor/Hockey Operations.

As I mentioned in a prior post on Greg Malone moving to the Coyotes’ staff; the Penguins hockey operations staff will slowly but surely be reshaped to Shero’s content.

Regardless of whether good or bad, right or wrong, I am of the firm belief that both Michel Therrien or Mike Yeo will not be in their present capacities with the Penguins when the first regular-season puck is dropped 2007/2008.
