Mari Jeter is in her eighth year with the Hurricanes, and her sixth year in the role of executive assistant to the president and general manager. Along with assisting the general manager, Mari prepares and maintains player contracts and immigration on both the NHL and AHL levels, and coordinates player call-ups and loans between the two leagues. Mari also assists team operations personnel with conditioning camp, rookie camp and training camp.
