Craig Button Career


Button began his NHL coaching career with the Minnesota North Stars in 1988. He was the Scout Director for the Dallas Stars 1992-98, as well as the Director of Player Personnel for the Dallas Stars 1998–2000. During this period, Button worked with hockey legends Bobby Clarke and Bob Gainey. The team played in two Stanley Cup Finals, winning in 1999 and receiving the Presidents Trophy on two occasions when with the Stars. Among the list of players who were drafted during his time include Derian Hatcher, Jere Lehtinen, Jamie Langenbrunner, Marty Turco, Jarome Iginla, and Brenden Morrow.

In 2000, Al Coates was recalled as the Calgary Flames' Vice President and General Manager.

Button's tenure as Flames general manager had mixed success. Although he was a driving force for the Flames' primary development team, the Saint John Flames of the American Hockey League, when they won the Calder Cup championship in 2001, he wasn't able to have the same effect on the Flames' roster.

Martin St. Louis, a future Hall of Famer who left the team and signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning as a free agent, was placed on waivers by Button.

In order to shield Fred Brathwaite in the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft, Button gave up promising young goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere to the Mighty Ducks of Anaheim in exchange for a second round pick.

Marc Savard was traded by Button to the Atlanta Thrashers for Ruslan Zainullin, who had never played a single game in the NHL.

Before the 2002-2003 NHL season, Button was in charge of the position until he was not renewed and was replaced with Darryl Sutter, whom he had hired as Head Coach in December 2002. The Flames made it to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2003-2004, but they lost in seven games to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Button made his Toronto Maple Leafs debut in 2004 as a scout after being fired from the Flames.

Button is currently TSN's Director of Scouting, relying on his intimate knowledge of the game and its players to provide analysis into the NHL's top prospects. He is also a key analyst on TSN's That's Hockey.

Button, an analyst on the NHL Network's NHL On the Fly prior to joining TSN, was an analyst.
