Jason Karmanos Rejoins Hurricanes as Executive Director of Hockey Operations

Former Assistant General Manager returns to team after spending time with family

RALEIGH, NC-Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that Jason Karmanos has been named as the team's new Executive Director of Hockey Operations. Karmanos, who served as Carolina's assistant general manager for nine years, returns to the team after taking a short sabbatical.

Karmanos played college hockey for Harvard University, where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree with honors. After attending the Pittsburgh Penguins' training camp upon the conclusion of his collegiate career, he played professional hockey for the Raleigh Ice Caps of the ECHL. His playing career was cut short when he suffered an eye injury while playing for the Ice Caps during the 1996-97 season. Upon his retirement from hockey, Karmanos worked for an investment bank located in Boston. In April 1998, he was hired by the Hurricanes as assistant general manager, a position he held until October 2007. He was working as vice president and assistant general manager for the team when the Hurricanes captured their first Stanley Cup in 2006.

As Executive Director of Hockey Operations, Karmanos will work with Rutherford and Assistant General Manager/Director of Player Development Ron Francis in player evaluations, contract negotiations and player movements. His other responsibilities will include overseeing the day-to-day operations of the hockey club and the Hurricanes' minor-league affiliates in the AHL and ECHL. Karmanos will also serve as an Alternate Governor for the team, attending regular meetings of the National Hockey League Board of Governors.
