The Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Ray Shero has been named as Associate General Manager of the United States Olympic hockey team, along with Penguins’ coach Dan Bylsma being named as the team’s head coach.
Pittsburgh will be represented at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, not just on the ice, but behind the bench, and from up in the boxes.
Ray Shero will be serving behind David Poile, the General Manger for the Nashville Predators, as he is expected to be named the team’s general manager.
Poile and Shero are not strangers, since Shero served with the Predators for eight years, under Poile.
The official announcements have not been made, but will happen in New York on Saturday.
Congratulations to both Ray Shero and Dan Blysma. They deserve to be recognized for their hard work and should make the United States proud. The gold medal is starting to look promising for the United States.
