Former Detroit Red Wings Assistant General Manager and new Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill added a few familiar faces to his scouting staff this summer. Nill hired the Red Wings longtime Director of Scouting, Joe McDonnell to take over the same role in Dallas and also hired veteran scout Mark Leach. Both scouts are very well respected in the industry.
The Red Wings filled their vacant Director of Scouting position with former Columbus Director of Scouting, Tyler Wright. The former NHL player, joins the Red Wings’ organization after spending six years in the same position with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
Congratulations to all scouts as they move forward with their new teams this season.
