LAS VEGAS (Oct. 17, 2016)  – Bill Foley and the Las Vegas NHL Franchise have announced today that Tom Poraszka has been hired as a Hockey Operations Analyst.

            Poraszka was the founder of General Fanager, where he designed and developed a web application that served as an independent compiler of the latest news and contract information for players in the National Hockey League. The site allowed fans the ability to review current and historical contracts for all 30 NHL teams and all of their active players, and provided consolidated information on free agents and a summary of each team’s draft picks.  Poraszka also developed advanced tools for salary cap analysis and team management, including the ability to customize rosters to determine their cap compliance.

            Prior to creating General Fanager, Poraszka worked as a senior associate with SapientNitro and as a studio manager and technical lead for Manifest Communications.

            Poraszka received a Bachelor of Applied Science degree from the University of Waterloo.

That’s not snark by the way—the site is already down with a message.

It’s almost not even worth trying to hop from site to site, knowing they’ll just get hired and go down in short order.
