The Ottawa Senators removed the interim tag from Steve Staios' title and hired Dave Poulin as senior vice president of hockey operations, the team announced Sunday.

The 50-year-old joined the Senators' organization on Sept. 29 as the club's president of hockey operations and became interim general manager after Pierre Dorion's firing. He'll retain the former role while simultaneously performing his new duties as the Sens' full-time GM.

Poulin has covered the Senators as an analyst since joining TSN in October 2014. He previously worked as an assistant GM with the Toronto Maple Leafs from 2009-2014. The 65-year-old will report to Staios.
