George Ross Promoted to Director of U.S. Scouting

Spokane, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs announced on Wednesday that part-time area scout George Ross has been promoted to the position of Director of United States Scouting.

“George has been an important member of our scouting staff,” said Chiefs’ assistant general manager, Chris Moulton. “He has done a great job covering the Western U.S. and been our main representative at all events stateside. We are excited for him to take on an even larger role within our organization.”

Ross has been with the Chiefs as a bantam scout since the 2014-15 season, focusing on prospects within his home state of Minnesota before expanding to other states in 2016. In his new role, Ross will oversee all scouting in the U.S., while also assisting as needed in British Columbia. He expects to relocate to Spokane in August.

“I am honored to take on this opportunity with the Chiefs,” added Ross. “I have had the privilege of learning under some excellent hockey minds in Chris Moulton, Tim Speltz and Scott Carter over the past five years, seeing firsthand how tirelessly the Chiefs staff has worked to build a successful winning culture.

“I look forward to getting out to Spokane and helping to build on such a strong foundation.”
