Apparently being the son of the owner doesn’t guarantee keeping your job.
The Carolina Hurricanes announced they’ve relieved assistant general manager Jason Karmanos of his duties after 15 seasons with the organization. He’s the son of team owner Peter Karmanos who offered this as the only explanation, courtesy of ‘Canes PR man Mike Sundheim.
“This is a family matter. I have no further comment at this time.”
The team will fill the position from within by Vice President of Hockey Operations Ron Francis and Video Scout/Hockey Operations Darren Yorke.
The timing of this firing is, to say the least, curious. The Hurricanes are set to open training camp in four days and considering the amount of time Karmanos has spent with the organization and who is father is, it’s easy to let your imagination run away in trying to figure out what went wrong.
