Bruins lose John Weisbrod to to Flames

Posted By DJ Bean On June 27, 2011 @ 10:24 pm In General | No Comments

John Weisbrod is officially the Bruins’ former director of pro and collegiate scouting, as he has left the B’s to move up the ladder with a new gig in Calgary [1]. Weisbrod, who was a scout for the Stars before coming to Boston in 2006, is now the Flames’ assistant general manager/director of player personnel.

While Weisbrod did a fine job in his role with the Bruins, his best pick doesn’t even play hockey. Weisbrod was the Orlando Magic’s GM when the team had the first overall pick in 2004, and he chose Dwight Howard [2] over Emeka Okafor [3].

Weisbrod will now work under Calgary GM Jay Feaster.
