The Pittsburgh Penguins have hired Chuck Fletcher as the team's assistant general manager.

The 39-year-old Fletcher has 13 years of NHL management with Florida and Anaheim – serving as assistant GM, director of hockey operations and interim general manager during that time.

In his new post with the Penguins, Fletcher will work closely with general manager Ray Shero on all hockey-related matters, including scouting, overseeing the development of young prospects and contract negotiations. He also will be involved with the club's top minor league affiliate, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League.

Fletcher is the son of longtime NHL executive and Hall of Famer Cliff Fletcher, who led the Calgary Flames to the Stanley Cup as their General Manager in 1989 and is currently the senior executive vice president of hockey operations for the Phoenix Coyotes.

''Chuck grew up in hockey and has gained a tremendous amount of NHL management experience at a young age,'' Shero said. ''He will bring a fresh, dynamic perspective to our organization, and I look forward to working closely with him to build the Penguins into a championship team.''
