Alexander Radulov is excited to be back in the NHL, and prove to himself, the Montreal Canadiens, and the rest of the league that he's a changed person and player.

MONTREAL — The Montreal Canadiens have hired former goaltender Sean Burke to serve as a professional scout.

Burke, 49, made his NHL debut in 1988 and played 820 career games over his career.

The Windsor, Ont., native spent six seasons with the Phoenix Coyotes’ management team in various roles. Burke worked as a goaltending coach, director of player development and assistant general manager.

Burke will handle scouting duties for the Canadiens in the western region, the team said Thursday in a release.
