One of the most well-loved former NHLer and tough guy George Parros has announced that he will be joining the Department of Player Safety, reports The Score.

 

He will be a part of the group that handles disciplinary decisions.

 

Said Parros: “It's an interesting opportunity to not only watch a lot of hockey and remain in the sport, but kind of affect what's going on in the sport in a way that things move forward.”

Stephane Quintal, head of the Department, is happy to have the former enforcer join his team: “I am very pleased that George is joining us and excited about what he will bring to our department… and the fact that he only recently retired means that he has a keen understanding of today's game.”
