Major staff signing. The Predators organization are happy to announce the hiring of Jussi Salo as Director of scouting. Jussi comes to us with over 20 years of experience coaching and as a GM from the highest level of Junior and Pro in Europe. Jussi have worked in leagues like Allsvenskan, Superelit, Hockeyettan and is currently also the head coach for Vasby playing in Hockeyettan. Jussi has also been an instructor with Team USA U18 as well as Finland U18 and U17. Last season Jussi coached Vita Hasten J20Elit and worked in management for Vita Hasten in Allsvenskan where current San Jose Shark Marcus Sorensen played. Predators GM Johan Eriksson had this to say: I got to know Jussi about 2 years ago, and when the chance for us came to tie him to the organization it was a no brainer. Jussi is a real pro, very experienced and well connected. This is of course a good day for the Preds. With Jussi living in Sweden he has also already worked with current Preds player Jesper Eriksson on ice. And have been assisting me taking a look at players we have been interested in. Jussi is already a valued member off our staff and we hope to some day see him over here in NOTL
