Assistant GM Nill To Remain With Team

Jim Nill’s goal is to become an NHL general manager, and he was intrigued about the possibility of taking over a storied franchise like the Montreal Canadiens. But Nill, the Wings’ assistant GM, passed on the chance, feeling the timing was not right, due to an illness in the family, he told MLive.com. Nill does not have an out clause in his contract this season, but the Canadiens called Wings owner Mike Ilitch and asked for permission to speak to him. Nill has been the team’s assistant GM for 14 seasons and has spent 18 years in the Red Wings’ front office. He runs the amateur scouting department and oversees the selections at the entry draft. He also oversees the development of the organization’s prospects with the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins, as well as those in the Canadian junior, European and college ranks.
