The Rangers never named another head amateur scout. Gorton joined the Rangers as a pro scout in the summer of 07 after the Bruins fired him. He was named assistant director of player personnel in 2008 and held that position for 3 years. In 2011,Gorton was elevated to AGM. 08-09 was the first year of Gorton having a greater role. The Rangers have taken American and Canadian boys in the draft. Kreider. McIlrath. Miller. Skjei. Bourque. Thomas. St. Croix. Nieves. Tambellini. College bound and CHL players. Traded for McDonagh. Traded for Moore. They like the Swedes too. Erixon,Lindberg and Fasth. Clark and Gorton work together. They were together in Boston before Clark joined Milbury on Long Island.
Why was Gorton fired by Boston?
