Montreal - The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday the appointment of Larry Carriere to assistant general manager and director of player personnel.

Carriere, a Montreal native, had been a pro scout for the Washington Capitals since 2004. His tenure culminated in the parent club winning the President's Cup last season, while the Capitals' AHL affiliate in Hershey won the last of its three Calder Cup championships during Carriere's run.

"We are extremely happy to announce the appointment of Larry Carriere as assistant general manager/player personnel. Larry brings with him an important background in the NHL in several key areas such as recruitment, player evaluation and player development. He will be a key contributor to our hockey management team", said Canadiens general manager Pierre Gauthier.

The 58-year-old previously spent two decades with the Buffalo Sabres, serving as assistant general manager from 1995-2004 including a brief stint as general manager in 1997. He also worked as director of player evaluation for the Sabres (1993-95) as well as amateur scout (1983-1993).
