Posted June 20, 2014

— Less than four hours after introducing Bill Peters as the new head coach, Carolina Hurricanes General Manager Ron Francis announced on Friday afternoon that Ricky Olczyk has joined the team as an assistant general manager. 

Brian Tatum and Mike Vellucci were named assistant general managers in April. 

“Ricky brings a wealth of experience to the Hurricanes,” Francis said in a statement. “His legal expertise with the collective bargaining agreement and other areas of hockey operations will be a great asset to our management team."

Olczyk, 44, comes to Carolina after six seasons as assistant general manager with the Edmonton Oilers.

The Chicago native joined the Oilers in 2007 as director of hockey administration and legal affairs and was Edmonton’s liaison to the NHL regarding all matters pertaining to the CBA.

A 1992 graduate of Brown University, Olczyk earned a law degree from Cornell Law School in 1996.

While at Brown, he played four seasons of Division I hockey and served as the Bears’ captain during his senior year. Olczyk also captained the United States Under-17 National Team that won the Silver Medal at the 1986 World Cup.

He is the younger brother of Eddie Olczyk, U.S. Hockey Hall of Famer and television analyst for the NHL on NBC.
