The Carolina Hurricanes have informed general manager candidates that the organization plans to fill the vacancy internally, sources told Daily Faceoff's Frank Seravalli.

Don Waddell, the Canes' GM for the last six seasons, resigned from his post May 24. Eric Tulsky has been serving as Carolina's interim GM ever since, with the support of fellow assistant Darren Yorke.

Tulsky holds a B.A. in chemistry and physics from Harvard, as well as a Ph.D. in chemistry from Cal. He's interviewed for other NHL GM openings in the past and has long been considered a bright, up-and-coming executive.

Tulsky got his start with Carolina as a consultant in 2014 after the club took notice of his usage of analytics as a blogger. He's been working his way up the organization ever since, becoming a hockey analyst for the club in 2015, the manager of hockey analytics in 2017, and the vice president of hockey management and strategy in 2018. Tulsky was named assistant GM in 2020.
