The Atlanta Thrashers have named Rick Dudley associate general manager, according to Executive Vice President and General Manager Don Waddell. Dudley will be responsible for assisting in all facets of hockey operations with a primary focus on overseeing scouting and player development. He will join the club this week at the NHL Entry Draft in Montreal.
“We are pleased to announce the addition of Rick Dudley to our front office.” Waddell said. “He has had noted success at all levels as a player, coach and general manager, and his nearly 40 years of professional experience will certainly prove beneficial to our organization. His ability to both evaluate and develop talent is evident in the remarkable turnarounds made by the Tampa Bay Lightning and Chicago Blackhawks, both with players acquired during Rick’s tenure.”
