Senators’ Former Chief Amateur Scout Joins Las Vegas

Bob Lowes is Las Vegas’ latest hiring as he joins the organization as assistant director of player personnel.

There’s still a lot of work to be done in Las Vegas before they join the NHL for the 2017-18 season, but today the organization grew by one.

Former Ottawa Senators chief amateur scout Bob Lowes has been hired as Las Vegas’ assistant director of player personnel.

Lowes served two years with the Senators as chief amateur scout, but had been with the club since 2006 when he started as an amateur scout.

Maybe most famous for being the one who had the idea of drafting Mark Stone in the sixth round of the 2010 NHL Draft, Lowes made his mark on the team during his time in the nation’s capital.

“Without a doubt, Bob Lowes was pushing for Mark Stone. That’s one name Bob really pushed for.” - Pierre Dorion. Published: June 23, 2015.

Among other things, Las Vegas is still without a coach, team name and jerseys. That should all be decided before they acquire a plethora of players in the NHL’s expansion draft on June 21.
