RALEIGH, North Carolina: After weeks of speculation, the Carolina Hurricanes have officially announced that the organization’s new permanent general manager is Eric Tulsky. Today’s announcement marks Tulsky as the franchise’s tenth GM.

Tulsky has been with the Hurricanes organization since 2014.

Prior to this morning’s announcement, Tulsky was the franchise’s interim GM, filling in after former GM Don Waddell left Carolina for the Columbus Blue Jackets. For Canes fans, this announcement was expected. Originally reported by Frank Seravalli on June 10, Tulsky was expected to gain the permanent GM tag sooner rather than later due to his experience with the organization.

Unlike Waddell, Tulsky won’t be in the organization’s presidential role. His sole focus is on the on-ice product.

Tulsky has already made offseason moves, re-signing defenseman Jalen Chatfield to a three year, three-million dollar contract. In an interview with Raleigh’s The News and Observer, Tulsky told longtime Canes writer Luke DeCock that the front office is working on a major contract for star RFA Seth Jarvis. Other alleged moves will be a Jaccob Slavin extension, which cannot officially be announced before July 1, 2024.

Tulsky’s first press conference will be held Wednesday, June 19, at 10 am EST. The conference will be held at PNC Arena.
