Less than a week until the official end of the NHL season with the Stanley Cup awarded to either the Florida Panthers or the Edmonton Oilers. Ahead of the busy season for a general manager, the Carolina Hurricanes have announced the permanent replacement for former general manager, Don Waddell. The interim tag has been removed for Eric Tulsky and he will get back to work with the buyout season starting and the NHL draft to follow at the end of the month.

Tulsky has been busy with the re-signing of defenseman, Jalen Chatfield. Most around the NHL considered this a smart signing regarding the amount for a top-four defender.

Having been in Raleigh for 10 seasons, Tulsky has implemented the analytical side of management to the front office while Waddell was at the helm. Now at the forefront, Tulsky will have the opportunity to have the analytics at the front of the hockey operations this summer.

Darren Yorke, the assistant general manager, will work closely with Tulsky on the day-to-day tasks. The two have had a professional relationship for over 10 years and will continue to be a pivotal part of the decision-making. Another big piece of the decisions will be head coach, Rod Brind'Amour. Brind'Amour is arguably the most knowledgeable person in the organization.

The trio of Tulsky, Yorke, and Brind'Amour will be sure to make its mark on this current Canes squad this summer and beyond. The array of backgrounds among the three brings a uniqueness not found among other NHL organizations.
