Madden has been with the organization since the 2008-09 season, most recently as the Ducks’ director of amateur scouting. As part of his expanded role, the 49-year-old will take over pro and amateur scouting, as well as take on more responsibility in the team’s general hockey operations department.
Prior to joining Anaheim, Madden served as an amateur scout for the New York Rangers, followed by a stint with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Madden has played a big part in the team’s drafting, helping the Ducks have the sixth-best prospect pool in the NHL, according to The Athletic’s Scott Wheeler.
Anaheim has the fifth-best odds to win the NHL Draft Lottery, with the first phase set for Friday.
What do you think of Madden’s promotion?
