The United States rounded out its management staff for the 2025 4 Nations Face-Off and 2026 Olympics on Friday.

New York Rangers general manager Chris Drury, New Jersey Devils GM Tom Fitzgerald, and Florida Panthers GM Bill Zito will serve as assistant GMs for the two events, USA Hockey announced Friday.

The trio will support Bill Guerin of the Minnesota Wild for both tournaments, who was named USA's GM in February. Guerin also named Wild director of player personnel Chris Keller to his international staff in the same role.

"We've got a great management group, and I'm excited to work with them in representing our country," Guerin said. "It's an exciting time in USA Hockey, and we're focused on bringing home championships from both events."

Drury, 47, was a GM for the U.S. at the World Championships in 2019 and 2021. He was also an assistant GM at the event in 2016 and 2017. As a player, he represented his nation at three Olympics (2002, 2006, and 2010), three World Championships, and the 2004 World Cup of Hockey. He's been at the helm of the Rangers since 2021.

Fitzgerald, 55, has never been an executive with Team USA. He played for the U.S. at the World Championships in 1989 and 1991. He was named GM of the Devils in 2020.

Zito, 59, is the only member of the group who didn't play in the NHL. He was the United States' GM at the 2018 World Championship and has been GM of the Panthers since 2020.

The 4 Nations Face-Off runs from Feb. 12-20 in 2025, while the Olympics are set for February 2026 in Italy.
