OSHAWA, Ont. - Jeff Twohey has resigned as general manager of the Oshawa Generals.

Twohey left the team "to pursue other opportunities," the Ontario Hockey League club said Monday in a statement posted on its website. Assistant GM Roger Hunt will be the acting GM.

Twohey joined the Generals in 2012 after 17 seasons as GM of the Peterborough Petes. He hired head coach D.J. Smith, who was named the OHL's top coach this past season.

Oshawa finished first in the Eastern Conference with a 42-20-0-6 record. The Generals were swept in the conference final in four straight games by the North Bay Battalion.

"Jeff has been a terrific general manager for the Oshawa Generals and I am grateful for his commitment to the Generals organization for the past two seasons," Generals owner Rocco Tullio said in a release.

"Under Jeff's leadership, the Generals won their first Eastern Division title in 13 years and led the team to the Eastern Conference final for the first time since the 2007-2008 season."

Hunt has been the team's assistant coach since 2010 and assistant GM since 2013.

"This is a great opportunity for Roger and we look for him to keep the team as one of the top teams in the Ontario Hockey League," Tullio said.
