Longtime television analyst Pierre McGuire is returning to an NHL front office as senior vice president of player development for the Ottawa Senators.
The club announced McGuire’s appointment Monday, saying he will work with general manager Pierre Dorion and owner Eugene Melnyk.
McGuire was one of the faces of NBC Sports’ hockey coverage since 2006, often serving as the between-the- benches analyst. Before that, he worked for TSN in Canada and did color commentary for Montreal Canadiens radio broadcasts.
This move allows McGuire to put his extensive knowledge of hockey players’ origins and connections to use in a far more private forum than TV. The Senators hope that helps turn them around after missing the playoffs the past four seasons.
McGuire, 59, spent time as a coach, scout and executive before his broadcasting career.
