Joe McDonnell, the longtime Detroit Red Wings director of amateur scouting, reportedly is following former assistant general manager Jim Nill to the Dallas Stars.

Detroit general manager Ken Holland told MLive.com on Saturday that McDonnell will join Nill, who was hired as Dallas general manager in April.

McDonnell has been a Red Wings scout for 18 years and became their director of amateur scouting in 2003.

Nill also hired Red Wings scout Mark Leach to accompany McDonnell to Dallas.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
