When former New Jersey Devils head coach John Hynes was let go last month, it became apparent how ownership and management had viewed the team's performance this season.

The Devils have announced that the team has met with GM Ray Shero and both sides have mutually agreed to go their separate ways.

Here is the official statement from the Devils organization:

"The New Jersey Devils and General Manager Ray Shero have agreed to part ways, effective immediately. "Ray is a talented hockey executive and I am confident he will have great success in the future. However, Ray and I are in agreement that the Devils need to move in a new direction and that this change is in the best interest of the team. "In the coming weeks and months, we will be launching a formal search for a new General Manager. "We are very optimistic about our future and have a lot of talent, both on and off the ice. "Tom Fitzgerald will serve as interim General Manager and he will receive support from Martin Brodeur, who will serve as an advisor to and on hockey operations. "Our organization remains deeply committed to creating a sustainably winning franchise. Our fans deserve nothing but the best hockey. We thank them for their continued support as we work toward our goals."

With expectations high coming into this season following the acquisitions of Wayne Simmonds and P.K. Subban and the addition of first overall draft pick Jack Hughes, this season has been a huge disappointment for the organization, who were hoping to challenge for a playoff spot this season.



The Devils are currently last place in the Metropolitan Division with a 16-21-7 record heading into Sunday's matchup against the surging Tampa Bay Lightning.
