The Carolina Hurricanes have reportedly hired former Los Angeles Kings assistant general manager Mike Futa. Futa will join the Hurricanes as a "Senior Consultant to the General Manager."

Check it out:


Futa will be tasked with helping GM Don Waddell manage the team moving forward. Frankly, it's an interesting hire only because Futa's name has been linked to literally a dozen different GM positions over the past half decade. He's seen as an up and coming executive in the game and a lot of people credit him for building the Los Angeles Kings' championship teams with Dean Lombardi. 

With Waddell not getting any younger, this hiring can very much be seen as a "next generation" style hiring by the 'Canes.
