The Senators have announced a trio of front office updates today.

The most important one is that Steve Staios has gone from "Interim General Manager" to "General Manager". He will retain the President of Hockey Operations title as well.

Dave Poulin joins the organization under Staios as Senior Vice-President, Hockey Operations. Poulin should be familiar to Sens fans, as he has been part of TSN's Senators coverage on both TV and radio. Poulin's previous management experience was with the Toronto Maple Leafs under Brian Burke, from 2009 through 2014.

Ryan Bowness also got a title upgrade, going from Assistant General Manager to Associate General Manager. The Senators have not announced if this comes with any changes to his role.

We should have more information about what responsibilities Poulin will have and if Bowness' role is changing after Andlauer, Staois and Poulin meet with the media at 4pm.
