Todd Nelson has worked hand-in-hand with general manager Bill Scott in Oklahoma City over the last four years to help the Edmonton Oilers build a solid development program in the American Hockey League. This week, Scott was named the Oilers new assistant general manager. Todd Nelson talked about Scott taking the next step in his career.
“We’re all happy for him,” the head coach of the OKC Barons said. “It’s a tremendous opportunity for him and I think he’s going to go up there and do a great job. It’s one of those things where it’s not just players wanting to move up and advance their careers, it’s management and staff as well. We’re very happy for him and I’m sure he’s going to do an outstanding job up there.”
