The Penguins' Ray Shero is a finalist for the NHL's general manager of the year award, the league announced today.

Shero made a series of signings and trades beginning last June, including the acquisition of backup goaltender Tomas Vokoun, defenseman Douglas Murray and forwards Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow and Jussi Jokinen.

Those players helped the Penguins earn the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and beat the New York Islanders in the first round of the playoffs.

The other finalists are Marc Bergevin of Montreal and Bob Murray of Anaheim.

The NHL's award winners will be announced during the Stanley Cup final next month.
