Former Agent Bill Zito To Be Named as Asst GM of CBJ
- Updated: August 12, 2013
The CBJ have again surprised some people by hiring former a NHL agent who has represented a wide variety of NHL stars, including current CBJ D-Man James Wisniewski. His name is Bill Zito. Yeah I know, me neither! But apparently Jarmo knows him well. The two merged their agencies into one back in 1995, so they have some history.
Zito will be in charge of the CBJ pro scouting department, and will be heavily involved in college scouting as well. Not to worry, this will not affect CBJ Asst GM Chris MacFarland. The longtime employee will continue to keep a watchful eye over the Springfield Falcons, as well looking over amateur scouting.
I see this as just another BRICK in the ever growing wall than JD has spoken of. Some of the most important people in a franchise are the ones that are not out in front of all to see. Welcome to Columbus Bill Zito!
