The Toronto Maple Leafs have promoted Dave Morrison to director of player personnel.

Troy Bodie will take over Morrison’s previous role as director of pro scouting and Wes Clark has been hired as the new assistant director of player personnel.

Morrison has been with the Maple Leafs since in 2004, starting as a scout, and was promoted to the director of pro scouting back in 2015.

Bodie was hired by Toronto as a scout in 2015 after playing two seasons with the team. In 159 career games, the Manitoba native had nine goals and 21 points. His wife, Francesca, is the daughter of former MLSE president Tim Leiweke.

Clark worked with Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas back in 2011 as the director of player development for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. He previously worked with the Leafs as a consultant for player evaluation but left in 2016 to work with the Florida Panthers as a scout.
