His name has been in the rumor mill for several years and now Bill Zito has his GM job in the NHL. Zito, the former associate GM and senior VP of hockey operations in Columbus, is the new GM of the Florida Panthers, who parted ways with veteran Dale Tallon last month.

“Bill is an excellent mind in our game today who proved during his time with the Columbus Blue Jackets that he possesses great prowess for evaluating talent and building success,” said Panthers owner Vincent Viola. “He brings great experience to our club and possesses a strong business acumen.”
