The Carolina Hurricanes are expected to call a news conference for early next week when longtime general manager Jim Rutherford will likely step down.

Rutherford just completed his 20th year as general manager of the Hurricanes.

Rutherford is the only general manager in the history of the team in Carolina. Under his guidance, the Hurricanes have earned a 534-486-156-20 regular-season record since arriving in North Carolina prior to the 1997-98 season, including a pair of trips to the Stanley Cup Final and the first Stanley Cup title in franchise history in 2006.

The former National Hockey League goaltender has been named The Hockey News 'Executive of the Year' twice as well as the Sporting News' 'Executive of the Year' in 2006, as voted on by his NHL management peers.
