Count Penguins assistant general manager Bill Guerin out of Carolina’s search for their next GM.

According to a tweet from TSN‘s Pierre LeBrun, Carolina reached out to Guerin last week, who “politely declined” to throw his name into the hat.

The Hurricanes and new owner Tom Dundon are looking to replace former Penguins great Ron Francis, who was reassigned to president of hockey operations. Dundon has described himself as “not patient” and  in an interview with NHL.com‘s Tom Guliliti made it clear that the new GM would report directly to him.

Guerin, who won a Stanley Cup with the Penguins as a player in 2008-09, joined the Penguins as a player development coach in 2011. In 2014, Pens GM Jim Rutherford promoted him to assistant general manager. This year, Guerin also assumed the role of general manager of Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.
