Another Boston connection for Kent Hughes and Jeff Gorton

Jeff Gorton and Kent Hughes have done a lot of work since they took over the CH. But behind the scenes, a lot of work is done by members of their team, particularly in terms of scouting.

Both executives are quick to surround themselves with people they know well, and it’s no surprise to see hiring from the Boston area. Hughes and Gorton have a special connection to the city.

So it’s not surprising to see that the head of North American scouting is now someone who has worked extensively at Boston universities.

After stints at Northeastern, Boston University and Harvard as a coach, Albie O’Connell now occupies this role. He did scouting for the CH in 2022-2023, but will now have a more important role.

Let’s recall that Gorton was born in the region and began his professional career in the Bruins organization. He was assistant general manager of the Bruins for several years, before returning to New York as general manager. His son also plays for the Boston University Terriers.

Kent Hughes, meanwhile, graduated from Boston College. His son plays at Northeastern University.

It is therefore quite normal and natural that the two CH leaders turn to people who work in institutions that they know quite well.

It will be interesting to see what results and discoveries O’Connell can make in the region.
