Press Release

The Spokane Chiefs have announced that Director of Player Personnel Chris Moulton has been signed to a three-year contract extension. He is now signed through the 2015-16 season.

"We are very excited to have Chris Moulton continue to be a part of our organization for at least the next three years," Chiefs General Manager Tim Speltz said. "Chris is a great judge of talent and develops strong relationships with players and their families."

"Chris has improved every year with us as we strive to win another championship. He is committed, dedicated and hard working. We are proud to have him lead the Spokane Chiefs scouting staff," Speltz added. 

A Fernie, BC native, Moulton originally joined the Chiefs organization in June, 2005. He signed a three-year extension with Spokane in 2010. Moulton had previously worked with the Calgary Hitmen. 

“I’m very excited to stay involved and continue building a winner,” Moulton said. “Our core scouting group remains intact and they’re as good as any in the league. Our success is directly linked to the hard work our scouts put in.” 

“I’m very proud to be a member of the Spokane Chiefs organization.  I can’t imagine working for anyone else in the Western Hockey League,” Moulton continued. “Spokane has been unbelievably welcoming to my family. I’m excited to come back.” 

The Chiefs finalized their hockey staff with the addition of Assistant Coach Scott Burt, as announced in July, and new Equipment Manager Tim Lindblade. Lindblade was previously the Equipment Manager for the Wenatchee Wild of the NAHL.
