With the announcement that Marcel Comeau was retiring after the conclusion of the 2019 NHL Draft there were a pair of big shoes to fill in the organization.  Comeau began as a scout with the Atlanta Thrashers, became Director of amateur scouting in 2003 and continued in that capacity for the Jets when they moved to Winnipeg until 2015 when he stepped down but continued to work in a scouting capacity.

Today the team announced that they hired Jeff Finley as Comeau’s replacement.  Finley has spent the past seven seasons in the Red Wings organization amateur scouting department which included being their chief scout for the last three seasons.  Folks around here may remember Finley as a member of the Winnipeg Jets 1.0 in the lame duck season before the team relocated to Arizona.
