The Arizona Coyotes named long-time hockey scout Lindsay Hofford as their assistant general manager and director of scouting on Tuesday.

“I believe the most important part of my role is to recruit talented people,” said Coyotes general manager John Chayka in a release. “Lindsay is a best in class talent evaluator that will be an asset to our entire organization and complement the existing infrastructure we have in place.”

The 55-year-old Hofford has 25 years of coaching and scouting experience in the professional ranks and last was as an amateur scout for the Toronto Maple Leafs, a post he’d held since 2015. He also was a consultant for the London Knights.

Previously, he coached six season for the Knights and Lethbridge Hurricanes in the CHL.

Hofford was also a founder and CEO of the Pro Hockey Development Group, a hockey development organization that was created in 1992.

The Woodridge, Ont., native, graduated from the University of Guelph.
