Vaughn Karpan Hired As Director of Player Personnel



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 Player Personnel – Vaughn Karpan
Director of Hockey Legal Affairs/Capologist – Andrew Lugerner
Director of Hockey Administration – Katy Boettinger
Director of Goaltending and NHL Goaltender Coach – Dave Prior
Director of European Scouting – Vojtech Kucera 
Amateur Scout – Bruno Campese 

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.
