The Montreal Canadiens have announced some changes to their player development staff today.

Francis Bouillon, who has been working with the team in an unofficial capacity, has officially been named player development coach with the organization. The former Habs defenceman has been working at development camp all week.

There were other changes to existing members of the development team as well.

Rob Ramage, who was player development coach now becomes the director of player development. Martin Lapointe who was director of player development now becomes the director of player personnel and Vincent Riendeau who was the St. John’s IceCaps assistant general manager now becomes the director of goalie development and will assist in pro scouting.

Lapointe takes over the position from Trevor Timmins who was promoted to assistant general manager. Timmins was the vice president of player personnel previously.

The moves are the most significant changes to the organization over the summer, as they retained most of their assistant coaches (except Clement Jodoin), and their AHL coaching staff from last season.

The team’s development camp ends today.
