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:
Wishing longtime Boston Bruins Director of College Scouting Scott Fitzgerald all the best in his new role with the San Jose Sharks.
With his track record identifying players, there's no question he'll do an outstanding job with the Sharks
