Kate Madigan has been promoted by the New Jersey Devils to assistant general manager, the team announced on Wednesday.

“I am extremely honored to take this next step in my professional career,” said Madigan. “I want to thank Tom [Fitzgerald], our managing partners, executive leadership group, and members of the organization who supported me throughout my time with New Jersey and this new, exciting opportunity. I look forward to working with this group to make the New Jersey Devils better, each day, and bring back the consistent success our fans expect and deserve. I’m excited for the future of this team not only now, but for what it will be.”  

Madigan is the fifth woman to be promoted to an AGM role in the NHL this year, joining Emilie Castonguay and Cammi Granato (Vancouver Canucks), Meghan Hunter (Chicago Blackhawks), and Hayley Wickenheiser (Toronto Maple Leafs).
