Doug Wilson stepping down as Sharks GM after 19 seasons
Doug Wilson is stepping down as general manager of the San Jose Sharks after 19 seasons, the team announced on Thursday.
“I want to personally thank Doug for his 19 seasons as general manager of the San Jose Sharks,” team owner Hasso Plattner said in an official statement. “Doug and his staff produced remarkable results over a span that very few NHL teams can match, highlighted by our 2016 Stanley Cup run. Doug has been an integral part of this franchise since the team’s inception in 1991, and his impact – on and off the ice – will continue to be felt long into the future. Doug, and his wife Kathy, will always have a place as members of the Sharks family.”
Joe Will will continue to serve as interim GM until the Sharks conclude their “extensive, external search for a new general manager of the club.”
Wilson took a temporary medical leave back on Nov. 26, with Will replacing him on an interim basis.
