Montreal Canadiens hiring alert: a new ex-Lightning player joins the organization and his name is Teddy Purcell

As you know, former Tampa Bay Lightning players are very well represented in the Montreal Canadiens organization, notably thanks to Martin St-Louis and Vincent Lecavalier, but there were also rumors involving Brad Richards and Nikolai Khabibulin.

As we learned in the last few minutes via an article from The Athletic, and reported by Charles-Alexis Brisebois, another former Lightning player has joined the CH organization.

His name is Teddy Purcell and he has already completed a trio with Martin St-Louis and Vincent Lecavalier.

Purcell is now a professional scout for the Montreal Canadiens and he mainly scouts teams in the American West.


Let's also add that Kent Hughes himself was once Teddy Purcell's agent, so there's another connection there. From what we read about him, the former Lightning player is considered to be a very good hockey head, with a future as a leader.

From the first time I met him, I had been impressed with how much he followed hockey, how much he followed other people's games.

An interesting hire. More details to follow!
