SPOKANE, Wash. – The Spokane Chiefs announced today that Chris Moulton has been extended through the 2017-18 season and promoted to Assistant General Manager, Hockey Operations.
“It’s been an honor being involved with such a great organization,” said Moulton. “From (Owner/Managing Partner) Bobby Brett, to (former General Manager) Tim Speltz and now Scott Carter, it’s been an incredible experience for me. The people within the organization have become family.
“It is very easy to represent the Chiefs, the city of Spokane and our fans every day when interacting with parents and prospects. I’m looking forward to new challenges and bringing another championship to Spokane.”
Moulton joined the Chiefs in June of 2005 as Director of Player Personnel. Before that, he was one of the original staff members of the Calgary Hitmen organization and worked his way up, eventually holding the title of Second Scout from 2002-2005. The Fernie, B.C. native oversees the Chiefs’ entire scouting department, culminating annually with the WHL Bantam Draft each summer. Working closely with General Manager Scott Carter and the Chiefs’ coaching staff, he is also involved in player evaluation and roster transactions.
“I am very excited to have Chris alongside me moving forward,” said Carter. “His experience and knowledge is invaluable.”
The Chiefs also announced today that Athletic Trainer and Conditioning Coach Todd Daniels has been extended through the 2017-18 season. Daniels has been with the Chiefs since 2008.
