Source: Sharks hire possible director of scouting replacement originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Have the Sharks found their new director of scouting?

A source tells San Jose Hockey Now that the Sharks have hired Scott Fitzgerald from the Boston Bruins. It’s believed that he will be the team’s new director of scouting.

Fitzgerald, most recently, was Boston’s chief college scout. He has been with the Bruins since 2006-07, holding a variety of scouting titles, from college scouting coordinator to assistant director of amateur scouting to amateur scout. From 1999 to 2006, he was a Columbus Blue Jackets scout.

Phil Kessel, Charlie McAvoy, Jeremy Swayman, Matt Grzelcyk, and past and current Sharks Matt Benning and Ryan Donato are among Boston’s significant NCAA-trained draft picks during Fitzgerald’s tenure.
