Vaughn Karpan, the former Director of Professional Scouting for the Montreal Canadiens has been hired as Director of Player Personnel with Las Vegas.
He also has a past as an amateur scout with the Jets/Coyotes prior to his time in Montreal.
The titles are all beginning to sound similar as we continue to see McPhee add members to his staff. So, I think it’s time for a recap of everyone who has been hired on the hockey side. (Note: Craven is kind of a liaison between The Creator, hockey ops and business ops)
General Manager – George McPhee
Senior Vice President – Murray Craven
Assistant General Manager – Kelly McCrimmon
Director of Player Development – Wil Nichol
Director of Hockey Operations – Misha Donskov
Special Advisor to Hockey Operations – David Conte

Director of Hockey Legal Affairs/Capologist – Andrew Lugerner

Got it? Ok, good. Cause I’m not doing this again til they hire ten more people.
Vaughn Karpan will always be remembered to me as “the guy’s profile that has the recap of the whole staff.” Congrats Vaughn, you’ve been bookmarked on computers all throughout the valley.
Proud of our nephew, he’s worked hard in the hockey world, and know he will give his best for the new Vegas team. Flin Flon and The Pas people wish him the best with this team
We’re super pumped to have him! Looking forward to talking about the players he helps bring to Las Vegas.
As his grade 4 teacher, I am so very proud of Vaughan’s accomplihments! A wonderful student grows up to be an accomplished, wonderful person! I chat with his mom off an on and ask about Vaughan and his family. Makes me SMILE!!!
