The Maple Leafs have made another addition to their front office.

The Leafs announced Tuesday they have hired NHL Central Scouting senior director Brandon Pridham as assistant to general manager Dave Nonis.

“For 15 years, Brandon has played an integral role in the central scouting and central registry departments for the NHL,” said Nonis. “His intimate knowledge of the complexities of the salary cap system and strong relationships around the league will serve our team well.”

Raised in Stouffville, Pridham began his career at NHL Central Scouting in 1999.

“I am very grateful for the opportunities and experiences I’ve gained at the National Hockey League,” said Pridham. “I always looked forward to the opportunity to bring that experience to an NHL club and I’m thrilled with the chance to join Dave Nonis and his team with the Toronto Maple Leafs.”

Earlier this summer, Leafs president Brendan Shanahan hired Kyle Dubas, formerly of the Soo Greyhounds, as assistant GM.
