General Manager/Alternate Governor
Greg Sherman was named General Manager of the Avalanche on June 3, 2009 and enters his fifth season in that role.
Sherman, 43, will work with Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Joe Sakic in managing the day-to-day business operations of the team and will continue to be in charge of contract negotiations.
Prior to being named General Mnager, Sherman spent the previous seven years as the team’s Assistant General Manager. He has been associated with the franchise for the last 17 years.
Over the last four seasons, the Avalanche’s drafts have included Matt Duchene as the third overall pick in 2009 and Gabriel Landeskog as the second overall choice in 2011. Duchene went on to become a Calder Trophy finalist that next year while Landeskog went on to win the Calder in 2011-12.
Sherman was instrumental in launching the Avalanche’s affiliation with the Lake Erie Monsters in 2006, and the American Hockey League franchise continues to rank among the league’s best in attendance.
Born in Scranton, Pa., Sherman was raised in Denver and has spent most of his life in Colorado. After graduating from Cherry Creek High School in Englewood, Colo., Sherman received his bachelor’s degree from the University of San Diego in 1992.
Greg and his wife, Tamara, reside in Highlands Ranch with daughters Katelyn (12) and Delaney (9).
