Ricci was named adviser to hockey operations Tuesday while Marchment was assigned to scouting and player development.

“Mike Ricci and Bryan Marchment are two of the fiercest competitors to play in the National Hockey League,” Sharks GM Doug Wilson said in a statement. “We have always said that we will look at all ways to improve our organization on and off-the-ice and having these two leaders work with our current and future players is a fantastic opportunity for our club.”
