The Toronto Maple Leafs announced today that they have hired Spokane Chiefs General Manager Tim Speltz as their Director of Western Area Scouting.

The 57-year-old Speltz was hired prior to the 1990-91 season and has since spent 26 years with the Chiefs organization where he has won two WHL titles and two Memorial Cups in 1991 and 2008. Speltz has been named WHL Executive of the Year twice in his career, in the 1995-96 and 1999-2000 seasons.

The Chiefs have missed the playoffs only three times in Speltz's 26 year tenure and have been to the playoffs every season since the 2005-06 season.

He has also spent the past few years as a part of Hockey Canada's "Program of Excellence" group for the 2014 U18, where Canada won the gold medal.

Speltz will be involved in overseeing amateur scouting, specifically in the Western area for the Toronto Maple Leafs.
