The New York Rangers have hired former Red Wings capologist and assistant general manager Ryan Martin, per the New York Post’s Mollie Walker:
The rest of the Rangers’ front office is beginning to take shape.
President and general manager Chris Drury is bringing on Ryan Martin as his assistant GM. In addition, Drury appointed the Connecticut native as head honcho of the team’s AHL affiliate, the Hartford Wolf Pack, The Post’s Larry Brooks reported on Friday.
Martin comes to Broadway after 16 years in the Red Wings’ front office, 12 of which he served as assistant general manager. Joining Detroit in 2005, Martin started off as director of hockey administration before moving up to handle collective bargaining agreement administration and compliance, salary cap management, player contract research and analysis, and salary arbitration preparation. He was also general manager of the AHL Grand Rapids Griffins, who, under his lead, captured two Calder Cup championships over a five-year span.
Additionally, Martin is coming off his ninth world junior tournament working in player personnel for the United States. He helped the U.S. world junior team to the country’s first gold medal at the event since 2017 in January, while balancing his obligations back in Detroit and the Grand Rapids.
