The Carolina Hurricanes made some personnel shifts Tuesday, naming Darren Yorke as director of player personnel and promoting Eric Tulsky to vice president of hockey management and strategy.

"Darren and Eric have earned these promotions through hard work and dedication to the Hurricanes," Don Waddell, the team president and general manager, said in a statement. "Their knowledge and expertise in their respective areas are assets to this organization."

Yorke will be involved in all player personnel decisions, oversee amateur scouting, and report to Waddell.

Yorke first joined the organization in 2009 as video scout. He most recently served as manager of scouting, assisting the management team with professional and amateur player evaluations, approving scouting schedules and leading the annual scouting meetings.

Tulsky, beginning his fifth years with the Hurricanes, provides and analyzes data to assist the hockey operations department and coaching staff. The Philadelphia native began publishing advanced hockey statistical analysis in 2011.
