It didn’t take long for Eric Crawford to find work.

After being fired by the Vancouver Canucks last month, Crawford has joined the Montreal Canadiens as a pro scout.

Crawford, the younger brother of former NHL coach Marc Crawford, had been with the Canucks organization for 16 seasons. He most recently served as the Canucks’ director of player personnel.

Montreal also added Dave Starman as a NCAA scout.
