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

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
