Since resigning from his position with the Habs in 2021, a few days before Marc Bergevin’s dismissal, Scott Mellanby has been looking for a strong head on the Bettman staff. Mellanby, who was Bergevin’s right-hand man for eight years, was promised the position of GM of the CH at the time, and Geoff Molson’s about-face didn’t sit well with him. He clearly believes in his chances and his ability to manage a team, and is desperate to take the plunge.
Chicago, San Jose, Vancouver… Mellanby has been part of several hiring processes, without ever landing the coveted job. He spent the season as a consultant in St. Louis.
Émilie Castonguay of the Canucks is also said to be in the discussion.
