The NHL have promoted Terry Gregson to the position of Senior Vice President and Director of Officiating.

Gregson, who has spent the past four seasons as the League's Senior Officiating Manager, will immediately take over for Stephen Walkom who is returning to on-ice duties as an NHL referee.

"Terry Gregson was an excellent on-ice referee, has worked with Stephen Walkom for the past four years and is very familiar with the standard of officiating that has proved so successful," said NHL Senior Executive Vice President and Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell said in a statement Tuesday. "With Terry moving into this role, we are looking forward to a seamless transition."

After a 25-year career as a referee, Gregson joined the NHL's front office in 2005.

"I am pleased to have played a part in the positive direction the game has gone since 2005 and am excited at the opportunity to continue," Gregson said in a statement.  "The standard has been upheld and will be upheld."
