Team re-signs pro scouts Claude Larose and Ron Smith to multi-year contracts

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have hired Marshall Johnston as the team’s Director of Professional Scouting. Johnston has more than 30 years of NHL experience as a general manager, assistant general manager, director of player personnel, scouting-combine executive director, head coach, assistant coach and player. In addition, the Carolina Hurricanes re-signed Professional Scouts Claude Larose and Ron Smith to multi-year contracts.

“Marshall brings a wealth of hockey experience and knowledge to our scouting staff,” said Rutherford. “He will be an important part of our decision-making process on player movement from this point going forward.”

Johnston, 64, last served as Director of Player Evaluation for the Chicago Blackhawks. Previously, he had spent six seasons with the Ottawa Senators, serving as Director of Player Personnel from July 1996 through March 1999, Assistant General Manager from March 1999 through June 1999 and General Manager from June 1999 through June 2002. During his tenure in Ottawa, the Senators earned two division titles and three 40-win seasons and never missed the playoffs.

Johnston, a native of Birch Hills, Sask., played seven NHL seasons as a defenseman with the Minnesota North Stars and California Golden Seals from 1967-1974. After his playing career, he returned to coach his alma mater, the University of Denver, leading the Pioneers to the West Coast Hockey Association title in 1977-78. As a player, Johnston captured a National Collegiate Athletic Association title with Denver.

Johnston joined the Colorado Rockies (NHL) as Assistant General Manager and Assistant Coach on May 4, 1981, and served as the team’s Head Coach for the final 56 games of the 1981-82 season. After the team moved to New Jersey in 1982, he remained with the Devils as an Assistant Coach until November 1983 and was later named Director of Player Personnel, a position he held for 10 years. During his time leading the Devils’ scouting department, the team drafted, among others, Martin Brodeur, Bill Guerin, Brendan Shanahan, Mike Dunham, Sean Burke, Scott Niedermayer, Brian Rolston, Kirk Muller and Kirk McLean.

At the international level, Johnston led Team Canada as Head Coach in the 1978 (bronze), 1979 (fourth) and 1982 (bronze) World Championships. He also represented Canada in the 1964 and 1968 Olympic Games as a player, serving as team captain for the bronze medal-winning team in 1968. Johnston was named to the International Hockey Hall of Fame in 1998.
