FRISCO, Texas – Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that Steve Greeley has been hired as Director of Hockey Strategy/Scouting and Development.
In this role, Greeley, 41, will oversee the club’s scouting and analytics initiatives, and its application to evaluating player personnel decisions at both the amateur and professional levels. He previously served as Assistant General Manager for the Buffalo Sabres from 2017-2020. With Buffalo, he oversaw the team’s pro scouting and player development department.
“We are pleased to expand our hockey operations department as this hire gives us another resource in scouting and analyzing players at all levels, as well as increasing our awareness of League trends,” said Nill. “Steve has a strong scouting and analytics background and has shown the ability to research, and digest, numbers and information that help crucial decision-making in drafting, developing and signing players.”
Greeley joined the Sabres after spending two seasons as the assistant director of player personnel for the New York Rangers.
Before his tenure with the Rangers, Greeley spent two seasons as an associate coach at his alma mater, Boston University, where he played a vital role in the school’s recruiting process.
The native of Scituate, Mass. also spent seven seasons (2006-07 to 2012-13) in the scouting department for the Los Angeles Kings and served as a regional scout for the U.S. National Team Development Program from 2009 to 2012 and again from 2015 to 2017.
