The Ottawa Senators are promoting two front office employees.
GM Bryan Murray announced Wednesday that Pierre Dorion will move from chief amateur scout to director of player personnel while Randy Lee adds director of hockey administration to his player development role.
Dorion, 37, enters his third season with the Senators. As director of player personnel, he will be responsible for managing the Senators scouting staff, both professional an amateur.
An Ottawa native, Dorion joined the Senators in July 2007 after spending the previous two seasons as an amateur scout for the New York Rangers and 11 seasons with the Montreal Canadiens, where he served as an amateur scouting co-ordinator and later chief scout.
Lee, 47, enters his 15th season with the Senators. Lee served last season as director of player development, six seasons as the Senators' conditioning and player development coach, five seasons in the dual role of video and conditioning coach and two seasons as the team's video coach.
Also a native of Ottawa, Lee's role will see him focus on a variety of tasks, including the management and evaluation of the hockey budget and development of players throughout the team's system, including prospects at the American Hockey League, college, junior hockey and European league levels.
Lee also works with the Senators' current regular roster, guiding players with all aspects of their development, both on and off the ice. He oversees the team's development and rookie camps in addition to advising team management on the progress of all Senators prospects.
