John Ferguson Jr. has left the San Jose Sharks to become the Boston Bruins director of player personnel.

The Bruins also announced that Scott Bradley has been promoted to assistant general manager and Ryan Nadeau promoted to director of hockey operations and analytics, per a team release.

Ferguson was named general manager of the Toronto Maple Leafs in August, 2003, taking the job over from Pat Quinn who remained on as team coach. He would remain Leafs' GM after the cancellation of the 2004-05 season due to a lockout and would fire Quinn after the Leafs failed to make the playoffs the following season.

He was dismissed as Leafs' GM in January, 2008 after failing to lead the Leafs to the playoffs in the two seasons following the lockout. He was replaced by Cliff Fletcher on an interim basis before the Leafs hired Brian Burke in November of that year.

In the years since leaving Toronto, Ferguson has served as the director of pro scouting with the Sharks.
