The New Jersey Devils have made their second major in-season firing, this time parting ways with general manager Ray Shero.
The team confirmed Shero is no longer with the organization.
New Jersey already made a change at head coach by replacing John Hynes, who was fired on Dec. 3 after a 9-13-4 start, with interim Alain Nasreddine.
The Devils are in the midst of another difficult year and could miss the playoffs for the seventh time in the past eight seasons since losing the Stanley Cup Final after the 2011-12 season. They are in last place in the Metropolitan Division with a 16-21-7 record, and their 39 points are tied for the second-fewest in the Eastern Conference.
The team has only finished higher than seventh in an eight-team division once since 2014-15.
Shero took over as general manager of the Devils in May 2015. The 57-year-old did get the franchise into the postseason during the 2017-18 season, but the Devils were eliminated in the first round by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
