The Chicago Blackhawks will interview Scott Mellanby for the team’s general manager position, according to The Athletic.

Mellanby, who was with the Montreal Canadiens from 2012 to 2021, resigned as assistant GM in November after he was informed he was no longer part of Montreal’s GM search. The 55-year-old had been AGM since 2014 after previously working as the Canadiens’ director of player personnel. Part of his responsibility as AGM included being the AGM of Montreal’s AHL team.

Selected 27th overall in the 1984 NHL Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers, Mellanby played 21 NHL seasons as a forward with the Flyers, Oilers, Panthers, Blues, and Thrashers.

The Blackhawks announced Friday that they interviewed Kyle Davidson and Eric Tulsky. Davidson is in his 12th season with the Blackhawks organization and was named interim GM in October. Tulsky is in his eighth season with the Hurricanes and second as assistant GM.

Peter Chiarelli, vice president of hockey operations of the St. Louis Blues, is also reportedly a candidate. He won the Stanley Cup in 2011 and reached the Stanley Cup Final in 2013 as GM of the Boston Bruins.
