Sather to undergo surgery; Gorton has control of day-to-day operations

March 21, 2013, by

Us here at BSB want to wish General Manager Glen Sather a swift recovery, as Newsday has reported that he will undergo surgery for prostate cancer sometime today.

While Slats is recovering, Assistant General Manager Jeff Gorton is running the day-to-day operations. Gorton represented the Rangers at the general managers meetings in Toronto this week, and will be taking over where Slats left off. This includes player management, salary cap management, and collective bargaining.

Gorton’s history with the Bruins –where he served as interim general manager in 2006– includes orchestrating the Andrew Raycroft-Tuuka Rask swap, and drafted Phil Kessel, Milan Lucic, and Brad Marchand. Those are four key pieces on what is a very good Bruins team.

The most important thing here is that Slats gets well soon.

    Get well soon, Slats!

    Prostate cancer, caught early, has a great survival rate. I for one hope that in Slats case, it is caught early, recovers quickly, and has a long productive life after the surgery.
