The San Jose Sharks have appointed long-time assistant general manager Joe Will the new GM of the Worcester Sharks.
Will, who has been with the Sharks organization since the team entered the league in 1990, will continue to fill his role as assistant GM of the NHL’s Sharks on top of his new duties.
Since being named the NHL Sharks assistant GM two seasons ago, the team has had a record of 68-45-17 over 130 games, including an appearance in the Western Conference semi-finals.
From Will’s bio on the Sharks official website:
Will works closely with Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson on all daily departmental functions and his primary responsibilities include contract research and negotiations, scouting operations, fiscal planning, salary cap analysis and hockey administration. He’s the lead coordinator and planner for the
Sharks training camp scouting meetings and scouting conference calls each season.
One of his most important duties involves the tracking, analyzing and projecting of the team’s player payroll relative to the current and future National Hockey League salary cap to give the team the financial flexibility to ice a championship-caliber team each season.
