The Boston Bruins tweaked their front office on Tuesday, and while the moves will mainly make an impact behind the scenes, you might know a couple of the names.
To start things off, they promoted Wayne Gretzky’s brother Keith to director of amateur scouting, helping to fill the void of recently fired scouting head Wayne Smith. Keith Gretzky has piled up quite a bit of scouting experience. He began with a scouting position as a part of the Phoenix Coyotes in 2001, eventually becoming their director of amateur scouting in 2006.
(Unfortunately, many writers still insist on noting that he’s Wayne Gretzky’s brother. Poor guy.)
The team also added former Bruins player P.J. Axelsson (pictured) as a European scout and Keith Sullivan as an amateur scout. Axelsson played 11 seasons for Boston, last playing for the B’s in 2008-09.
Sullivan spent four seasons as a scout for the Coyotes and one with the Winnipeg Jets.
