Nonis, Yzerman on Lightning GM short list

Dave Nonis, Steve Yzerman and Doug Risebrough are on the short list to land the Tampa Bay Lightning general manager’s job, sources have confirmed to Sportsnet.

At this point, reports indicate that Toronto Maple Leafs assistant GM Nonis is considered the front runner for the position, however that would depend on whether Yzerman shows interest.

Yzerman is currently under contract with the Red Wings as a vice-president and most recently was the architect of Canada’s Olympic gold medal team.

Finally, it was reported last week that the Lightning received permission to speak with former Flames and Wild GM Doug Risebrough, who is currently under contract with the New York Rangers.
