The New York Rangers have named Steve Greeley as Assistant Director of Player Personnel and Nickolai Bobrov as Director of European Scouting. Greeley was an Associate Head Coach at Boston University for the last two seasons. Per Sean Hartnett, Bobrov was the North American representative for the KHL’s SKA St. Petersburg for the last three seasons.
Bobrov replaces Anders Hedberg, who had disappeared from the Rangers front office page this month. This is a clear indication that new GM Jeff Gorton is replacing Glen Sather’s staff with his guys. Standard practice.
