Assistant General Manager

Tom Fitzgerald is in his first year as Assistant GM after 5 seasons as assistant to the general manager after being promoted on June 6, 2014.

Prior to his promotion, Fitzgerald, 45, served two seasons as Pittsburgh’s director of player development. He was also named interim assistant coach for the Penguins on Feb. 15, 2009 and helped the club win its third Stanley Cup championship four months later.

In his current role, Fitzgerald monitors Penguins’ prospects playing in college, junior hockey, Europe and with the club’s American Hockey League affiliate at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

The Massachusetts native was a first-round draft pick of the New York Islanders in 1986 and played 17 NHL seasons with New York, Florida, Colorado, Nashville, Chicago, Toronto and Boston before retiring in 2006. He scored 329 points (139G-190A) and registered 776 penalty minutes in 1,097 career games. He reached the Stanley Cup Final with Florida in 1996.

Tom and his wife, Kerry, have four sons. His eldest son, Ryan, won the prestigious John Carlton Award as the most outstanding student-athlete in Eastern Massachusetts high school or junior hockey after scoring 17 goals and 36 points with the Valley Junior Warriors of the Eastern Junior Hockey League. Ryan was drafted by the Boston Bruins in the fourth round (120th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft.
