Scott Mellanby Hired As Montreal Canadiens Director Of Player Personnel

Scott Mellanby has been appointed as the director of player personnel for the Montreal Canadiens, the team announced Monday. Executive vice president and general manager Marc Bergevin praised Mellanby's experience in a statement.

"We are extremely happy to have Scott Mellanby joining the Canadiens organization," Bergevin said. "Scott has an impressive background and a commanding knowledge of the league, having played for 21 seasons in the NHL before holding various management positions over the last four years. Scott is known for his character and his leadership, which made him a great team captain during six seasons with the Florida Panthers and the Atlanta Thrashers. He has extensive knowledge of the game, is well respected in the hockey circles and will become an important asset for our organization."

Mellanby worked with the Vancouver Canucks as a special adviser and scout following his retirement as a player after the 2006-07 season. He spent the last two years as an assistant coach with the St. Louis Blues.
