Generals Hire Dan Currie as Director of Scouting/Player Development
OSHAWA, ON-The Oshawa Generals announce today they have named Dan Currie as the new Director of Scouting/Player Development with the hockey club.
"It's great to have a guy like Dan join forces with us. He'll be a tremendous asset to our scouting staff," said Vice President and General Manager, Roger Hunt, on the new hire. He's been around the game his whole life; he's an OHL alumnus himself and has first hand experience of what it's like to win a Memorial Cup. "We couldn't be happier to have a guy like Dan joining our staff."
"We feel he is a good asset to have. He comes from a coaching background, which helps his ability to assess players. He's been very productive with Windsor, winning a Memorial Cup with them in 2017 and helping cultivate that team. He's a good quality guy who's been around the game a long time,' said Director of Hockey Operations, Mike Kelly, on the addition of Currie to his staff.
Currie, a former pro hockey player, is joining the Generals from the Windsor Spitfires. He helped the Spitfires in their Memorial Cup title in 2017, where he was a scout for the past 7 years. Immediately following his pro career, he was a coach in Tier 2 before directing his attention to scouting.
"I'm really excited to be joining a great organization like the Generals," said Currie on his new role. "I'm really looking forward to working with Rocco, Roger, Mike and the rest of the scouts. I'm just ecstatic- really happy to be joining this club."
