Steve Yzerman to step down as Lightning GM, report says

Steve Yzerman is entering the final year of his contract with the Lightning. More

According to multiple sources, general manager Steve Yzerman is stepping down as GM and will be moving into a senior advisory role. Yzerman's family has remained in Detroit, and he commuted during his time on the job. During his time in the role, he proved to be one of the best in the league as the Lightning made it to the Stanley Cup Final once and appeared in three Eastern Conference finals.

Yzerman said he came to the decision in late July not to sign another contract as GM and that it took until now to iron out details on what to do next.

Yzerman said he was "100 percent committed" to the Lightning this season. "We have a plan here". BriseBois has been Tampa Bay's assistant GM for the past eight years and he's been with the organization since 2001, long touted as an up-and-comer in front-office circles.

This is South Africa’s murder capital
In Dundee, 17 murders were reported over the period (2017/2018 financial year) an increase of two cases. The murder rate of boys increased by 20.4 per cent while the murder of girls increase by 10.9 per cent.


Steve Yzerman is stepping down as general manager of the Tampa Bay Lightning and will be replaced immediately by assistant Julien BriseBois, a person with knowledge of the move told The Associated Press on Tuesday. It was widely believed that he'd be in line for a general manager job soon - just not this soon, and not in Tampa. "The mission is going to be the same". The Bolts lost the 2015 Stanley Cup Final to the Chicago Blackhawks in six games.

Regardless, this is a pretty stunning development in the hockey world given how well Yzerman has done in building a contender in Tampa. He promoted Jon Cooper to head coach in 2013, re-signed captain Steven Stamkos and locked up defenceman Victor Hedman to a long-term deal in 2016.

Before taking on an executive role, Yzerman spent his entire National Hockey League playing career from 1983 to 2006 with the Red Wings and helped Detroit win three Stanley Cups between 1997 and 2002.

As for BriseBois, he's also been with the club since 2010 and has always been speculated to be in line for a GM position.
