Stu MacGregor, who has served as head amateur scout for the Edmonton Oilers since 2007, was fired along with three other members of the Oilers scouting team on Saturday night six days before the first round of the 2015 NHL Draft, according to a report by Bob McKenzie of TSN.
The Oilers also fired head pro scout Morey Gare. MacGregor and Gare had each been with the organization for over a decade. Two additional scouts not named in the report were also fired.
The Oilers hold 10 picks in this year's draft, including two first- and two second-round selections. The organization won the NHL Draft Lottery in April to gain the No. 1 pick for the fourth time since 2010. The 2015 NHL Draft is June 26-27 at BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla.
