Don't know him, but he seems to have a boat load of experience.

If he was running the Hershey Bears since 2004 then I like this hire, 3 Calder Cups in 6 years.

Oh good, we definitely needed some help on the pro scout front. Welcome aboard. Anybody know of any moves that he was directly responsible for in any of the organizations he was in?

"After retirement, Carriere took a job with Molson Breweries in Toronto, Ontario. He kept active playing in Alumni games. In 1980, Carriere got a call from Imlach. Imlach had been fired by the Sabres organization in 1979, and was once again the General Manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Leafs were in need of a defenseman to help shore up their blue line for the stretch run into the Playoffs. Carriere came out of retirement after being out of the NHL for a year-and-a-half, to help his former GM. He played 2 games as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs during the 1979-80 season, and 2 during the 1980 Playoffs. At the end of the playoffs, Carriere retired once again, and returned to his job at Molson.
In 1985, Carriere, now living back in Montreal, rejoined the Sabres organization as a Scout for the Quebec Region. Carriere spent 8 years travelling throughout Quebec and Northern Ontario, evaluating amateur talent for the Sabres.

In 1993, Carriere was promoted, becoming the Sabres' Director of Player Evaluation. In 1995, Carriere was promoted again, becoming Assistant General Manager under GM John Muckler. When Muckler was dismissed in1997, Carriere took over as Interim General Manager, a position he held until current Sabres GM Darcy Regier was hired.

As of the start of the 2001-02 season, Carriere remains in his position as Assistant General Manager of the Buffalo Sabres. His duties include overseeing the development of professional players in the minor leagues. Carriere is also instrumental in dealings between the Sabres and their minor league affilites, The Rochester Americans of the AHL and the South Carolina Stingrays of the East Coast Hockey League. Carriere serves as the Sabre's representative on the American Hockey League Board of Governors."

A (pre) Concordia grad:

"Carriere's road to the NHL started, as it does for many NHL players, in the Canadian junior leagues. In 1968, Carriere joined the Verdun Maple Leafs of the Quebec Junior Hockey League. Carriere only lasted half a season in Verdun, deciding instead to attend college. Carriere left Verdun and enrolled at Loyola University in Montreal in the fall of 1968.
Carriere played hockey at Loyola from 1969-1972, while earning a degree in Business Administration. For Carriere, the collegiate route offered not only an education, but also the chance to gain an edge over players coming out of the junior ranks. As many collegiate players were older, and had "graduated" from the junior ranks, the level of play was higher. Carriere gained experience and maturity that many junior players lacked entering the draft. By the time Carriere was set to graduate, he was a much sought after defensive prospect. "

It says he was a pro scout for the caps? How much would he have to do with their ahl affiliate?

I had him in my "not sure" category when we were looking for a Gainey replacement as GM. I guess that makes him more sure for an assistant job....Good move not because of the language but because of the experience. Can't wait to see how he works with Gauthier though.

Two things: Is he replacing Timmins? And I am assuming he is taking over Brisebois' position as Hamiltons GM.

He's not replacing Timmins. He's replacing what Gauthier was to Gainey before. Also seems that they have a candidate to solely be Hamilton GM. And unless this Hamilton GM is a lawyer or perfectly knows the CBA they way Brisebois used to know, I also going to think that they're going to hire a lawyer or use the service of specialists only for that question.

Cool, sounds good. The player personnel thing threw me off.

He was a fairly good Dman with the Sabres.

Anyone know which players he was influential on to trade for? If he was a pro-scout guy do we have any idea how good he really is?
