NEWARK, N.J. — Ray Shero is out as the New Jersey Devils' general manager.

Owner Josh Harris announced the change less than 90 minutes before the struggling Devils were to face the Tampa Bay Lightning at the Prudential Center on Sunday.

The owner said the move was effective immediately. The change comes a little more than a month after Shero fired head coach John Hynes in the wake of a horrible start to the season.

Harris said assistant general manager Tom Fitzgerald would handle Shero's duties with the help of goaltending great Martin Brodeur.
