Former Devils assistant Mike Grier was named GM of the San Jose Sharks today, becoming the first black GM im in league history 

His brother is the GM of the Miami Dolphins

 

I dunno why but I find the fact they’re both GMs in different sports impressive

That’s really incredible. I had no idea his brother was involved in football. And so much teal between them.

I’m a huge Dolphins fan, so seeing my GM’s brother take over as an NHL GM is pretty surreal lol. It’s an awesome story. Also- they are both GM’s of teams named for marine animals 🤣

There’s a limited amount of those positions, for two siblings to have risen to that level is pretty impressive.

In different sports no less. I wonder if that’s happened before

According to something I read on Google:

“The New Jersey Devils hired Grier in 2018 as an assistant coach under John Hynes' coaching staff. For two seasons, Grier worked with the team's forwards and special teams, boosting the penalty kill to among the league's best.”

Have we had a PK among the league’s best since 2018?

Their dad was also an exec in the NFL too, according to the 32 Thoughts Podcast

Yep, Bobby Grier- he was a scout and executive for the Patriots for over 20 years.

Mike Grier was an excellent role player. He was a big part of those quality Sharks and Sabres teams

Definitely an underrated player. Mike Grier had a very solid NHL career.

Getting? What a fvcking mess over there. 

Yeah I’m not sure why any of these guys would go back unless they leave their families there during the season.

Rumors are starting to swirl with respect to Calgary because Gaudreau is taking so long. If Zadorov goes to market I hope that Fitz kicks the tires on that. He's 6'6 235.

EDIT: I think this is Andy Stickland so take it with a grain of salt.

apparently Matt Murray was traded to the Sabres but blocked the trade? They were on his no-trade list.

And this... again... proves how inconsistent goalies are... only a few seasons ago, if you told me Murray would be on the trading block, i would have been allllllll over this. And now.... meh..
