The Washington Capitals on Monday promoted Ross Mahoney to assistant general manager

The Washington Capitals on Monday promoted Ross Mahoney to assistant general manager.

Mahoney, who served as director of amateur scouting for the Capitals the past 16 seasons, will assist and advise new general manager Brian MacLellan in all player-related matters. Mahoney also will oversee the club's developmental programs and the organization's amateur scouting staff.

"Ross is an excellent judge of talent and the success he has enjoyed on the amateur scouting level speaks volumes of his expertise," MacLellan said. "He is a great asset for our hockey operations staff and someone I greatly respect."

Prior to joining the Capitals Mahoney was a scout with the Buffalo Sabres and Vancouver Canucks. He has coaching experience with the University of Regina, the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League and at the international level. He coached Canada's elite under-17 program in two World Championships. In 1995 he coached Saskatchewan to the gold medal at the Canadian Winter Games. He was inducted in the Saskatchewan Sports Hall of Fame in 1999.

Quote of the Day

I kept refreshing the page on the NHL website after the second round and I was shocked he lasted that long. I'm sure the Coyotes were pretty happy to get him. He's such a good player and he plays big in big games.
