From a Penguin to a Greyhound?
The Soo Greyhounds could be close to filling their vacant General Manager position. Several sources have told TPS that Ron Pyette, currently a Pittsburgh Penguins scout is the favourite to get the job. We've been told that Pyette interviewed last week and could be named GM by April 15th. The move makes sense as Pyette is from Sault St. Marie according to his bio from his time with Hockey Canada, which would make the move from his now home town of Calgary much easier. Every person I have talked to today has had nothing but good things to say about the current Penguins scout, from his time with Hockey Canada to his job as an NHL scout. I'm told he always takes the time to talk to coaches and get to know the person, not just the player.
