Less than a week after the Los Angeles Kings granted the Hurricanes permission to speak with Mike Futa about their general-manager vacancy, he appears to be out of the running for the Carolina job, reports Sportsnet's John Shannon.

Futa, the Kings' current assistant GM, has "respectfully withdrawn" his name from consideration, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.

Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon has been busy seeking a replacement for Ron Francis, who was relieved of his GM duties last week. It was reported Monday that the club had already interviewed Buffalo Sabres assistant GM Steve Greeley for the position.

The Hurricanes' new GM will report directly to Dundon.
