New York Rangers general manager Glen Sather could step down, according to Yahoo Sports and ESPN Boston writer Jimmy Murphy.

Sather, 69, has been with the Rangers since 2000 and recently let go of head coach John Tortorella. Sather missed part of this past season while undergoing surgery to treat prostate cancer in March. Assistant GM Jeff Gorton took over the duties leading up to the NHL trading deadline.

Though Sather has previously stated that he will retain his duties as GM for next season, Murphy could see him stepping down this summer.

From Murphy's hockey blog:

Don’t be surprised if Sather, 69, decides to step down from his GM post and places another in charge of running the player personnel decisions. An NHL source as well as a Rangers team source have told MurphysHockeyLaw.com that Sather is considering such a move as he prepares to meet with his hockey operations staff in La Quinta, California this week to discuss the coaching situation, the roster going forward and prepare for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft in Newark on June 30.

Murphy also reports that Sather would retain his position as President of the Rangers if he left the GM post.
