Ray Shero was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota and his given name is Rejean (“Ray”) Shero.  He is the son of the late Fred Shero who was the former coach of both the Philadelphia Flyers and New York Rangers.  Shero replaced Craig Patrick who had been the Penguins GM from 1988-89 through 2005-06.  Prior to that, Shero served as the assistant GM for both the Ottawa Senators (1993-1998) and Nashville Predators (1998-2006).

He never played in the NHL, but he did play in college for the St. Lawrence University Skating Saints and was drafted in 1982 by the Los Angeles Kings (216th overall).
