MONTREAL -- It looks like Serge Savard will be working for the Montreal Canadiens longer than originally expected.

Radio-Canada reports that Savard has been appointed the club's senior vice-president of hockey operations.

The Hall of Fame defenceman was handpicked last month by Canadiens owner Geoff Molson to help find a replacement for fired GM Pierre Gauthier.

Radio-Canada says the new general manager, who has yet to be named, will report to Savard.

The 66-year-old was the Canadiens' GM between 1983 and 1995 and led the team to its last two Stanley Cups.

The Habs are coming off a disastrous season that saw them finish last in the Eastern Conference.
