Minnesota Wild President and General Manager Doug Risebrough announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has hired Chris Snow as its Director of Hockey Operations.
“Chris brings tremendous work ethic and a high level of enthusiasm to this position, and we’re very confident his fresh outlook and insight will be an asset for the organization,” Risebrough said.
As Director of Hockey Operations, Snow will be responsible for many of the day-to-day duties of the hockey operations department, including monitoring rosters and salary commitments of other NHL teams, performing player contract and arbitration research and supporting team staff in training camps, team travel and scouting operations. Snow will also assist the club with statistical analysis of hockey at the amateur and professional level and will also work with www.wild.com to provide insight into player personnel and team information.
Snow, 24 (8/11/81), most recently was a staff writer for the Boston Globe, where he served as Boston Red Sox beat writer. Prior to that, he covered the 2003-04 Wild season for the Minneapolis Star Tribune. A graduate of Syracuse University, Snow interned for the Globe in 2001 and 2002 and also served as a sports intern at the Los Angeles Times.
Snow will begin his new role with the Wild later this summer.
