Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello added another acclamation to his Hall of Fame resume, being named winner of the NHL’s Jim Gregory GM of the Year award for the 2019-20 season.

It marks the first time Lamoriello has won the award, which began being given out in 2010.

The 77-year-old Lamoriello, who previously won three Stanley Cups as GM of the New Jersey Devils, edged out Tampa Bay’s Julien BriseBois and Dallas’ Jim Nill in voting done by a 41-member panel of GMs, NHL executives and media members.

Lamoriello’s key moves in his second season with the semifinalist Islanders were the free-agent signings of Semyon Varlamov and Derick Brassard, the re-signing of captain Anders Lee and others and the in-season trades for J-G Pageau and Andy Greene.
