Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Nov 18, 2020 6:36 am

Brett Peterson has been hired by the Florida Panthers, who believe that he is the first Black assistant general manager in NHL history.

\"If it means that we\'re expanding opportunities for people in hockey, then I\'m humbled. But this was a hockey hire,\" Panthers general manager Bill Zito told ESPN on Tuesday. \"Hockey is such a great game. We need to make it accessible. I\'m hopeful that maybe someone else can get a chance.\"
