The Halifax Mooseheads have promoted consultant Bob (Tipper) LeBlanc to assistant general manager.
The former Saint John Sea Dogs general manager will join Mooseheads GM Cam Russell as part of a revamped management team heading into next week’s QMJHL draft.
“He helps my transition run a little smoother,” said Russell. “He has the experience of being a past general manager so a lot of questions I have, he’s a guy I can ask and bounce ideas off of. I think we’ll work well together as a team.”
LeBlanc spent a season and a half with the Sea Dogs before resigning in December 2006. He was responsible for bringing in Alex Grant, Yann Sauve, Chris DiDomenico and David Stich in the expansion franchise’s early days.
He served as chief scout with the Mooseheads from 2000 to 2005 and returned as a consultant in August 2007.
