Greg Sherman’s time with the Colorado Avalanche is now over, according to the Denver Post.

It was reported on Tuesday that Sherman, the team’s general manager from 2009 to 2014, has moved on from the Avalanche after 15 years with the club. The move comes almost a full year after Sherman was named the team’s senior VP of business and team operations.

From the Denver Post:

He was the point man in the team’s quest to build a new practice facility, which has yet to materialize, and assisted owner Josh Kroenke at the NHL owner meetings. The Avs were once looking to join forces with the Highlands Ranch Metro District to build a new practice facility off Lucent Boulevard, just south of C-470, and still might consider building the facility on Kroenke-owned property in Commerce City.

Sherman’s time as Avalanche GM came to an end in September of 2014 when Joe Sakic, then the executive VP of hockey operations, was additionally handed the title of general manager.

As a result, Sherman was moved to assistant GM, before he was named VP of business and team operations.
