Ottawa Senators add scouts Trent Mann, Ryan Bowness as assistant general managers

Canada

OTTAWA – The Ottawa Senators have added two familiar faces as assistant general managers ahead of the NHL entry draft.

Trent Mann, previously the team’s chief amateur scout, has been promoted and will continue his scouting duties while adding player development roles to his portfolio.

The 48-year-old native of Sackville, N.B., started with the Sens as a part-time amateur scout in 2010.

Ottawa has also hired Ryan Bowness, former director of professional scouting for the Pittsburgh Penguins and the son of Rick Bowness, who served as the first-ever coach of the Senators.

Bowness, a 38-year-old who hails from Halifax, will be in charge of contracts for the team and will act as general manager of the American Hockey League’s Belleville Senators.

The moves come after former AGM Peter MacTavish left the Sens to join Quartexx Hockey, a hockey management firm, earlier this month.

Mann and Bowness will join the Senators in Montreal next week ahead of the 2022 NHL entry draft, which begins on July 7.
