SJHN Daily: Scott Fitzgerald Will Be Sharks’ Director of Player Personnel



Credit: USCHO

We now know Scott Fitzgerald’s title with the San Jose Sharks.

San Jose Hockey Now contributor Erik Fowle spotted this change in Fitzgerald’s LinkedIn profile:

Last week, San Jose Hockey Now broke that the Sharks would be hiring Fitzgerald from the Boston Bruins.

Most recently, he was the Bruins’ Chief College Scout. He has been with the Bruins since 2006-07, holding a variety of scouting titles, from College Scouting Coordinator to Assistant Director of Amateur Scouting to Amateur Scout. From 1999 to 2006, he was a Columbus Blue Jackets scout.

While we’re not sure yet what Fitzgerald’s exact duties will be with the San Jose Sharks, based on his past, we’re assuming it will be Draft and prospects-related.

With his long past in Boston, Fitzgerald is leaving behind positive views of his performance:
