Florida hires the first black assistant manager in NHL history

Brett Peterson has become assistant general manager of the Florida Panthers, according to the club’s official website. It is noted that 39-year-old Peterson will be the first black in NHL history to receive such a position.

Most recently, he served as Vice President of Hockey Operations at Wasserman Media Group. He has been a Certified NHL Player Agent since 2009. Peterson has played 21 games in the AHL during his hockey career (18 games for the Detroit Red Wings farm club), as well as 317 games in the ECHL and 157 in the NCAA.

Earlier, the National Hockey League completed its own peer review of racist speech by former Florida Panthers general manager Dale Tullon. As a result of the investigation, the charges were not confirmed.
