The Pittsburgh Penguins announced they have relieved General Manager Ray Shero of his duties. Assistant GM Jason Botterill will serve as the Penguins interim GM and the search for a new GM is underway.

Shero served as Pittsburgh’s General Manager for eight seasons and was named the 2013 NHL General Manager of the Year. He hitched his wagon and his fate to Bylsma last season, signing the head coach to an extension after losing in embarrassing fashion to the Boston Bruins in the Eastern Conference Finals.
