CALGARY — Hockey Canada has hired former Moose Jaw Warriors general manager Alan Millar as its director of player personnel within the Program of Excellence.

Millar will lead all player evaluations and selections for Hockey Canada's national team camps and tournaments in consultation with the organization's five regional scouts.
