A bit more clarification on his role from the Sun:
Mellanby, meanwhile, will provide Gillis with input into pro player decisions. Mellanby played in the NHL for 20 years with five different teams before retiring following the 2006-07 season.
The 41-year-old father of three will be based in St. Louis, where he currently makes his home. He is expected to work closely with assistant GM Steve Tambellini and director of player personnel Lorne Henning.
"I wanted to have the opinion of a recently retired player with a long track record in the East," Gillis said, explaining Mellanby's appointment.
"Scott is coming in specifically to assist me and our pro scouts assess players who will be unrestricted and restricted free agents."
