Starting in 2002-03, Timmins has spent the last 14 years as the Canadiens director of amateur scouting. During his first 10 years with the team, he was also the director of player development. Ex-NHLer Martin Lapointe took over for him starting in the 2012-13 season. Following the 2013-14 season, he was promoted to the vice-president of player personnel.

In his 14 years as head of scouting, Timmins has brought in core players such as all-star goalie Carey Price,  Alex Galchenyuk and captain Max Pacioretty in the first round.  As well, as later round gems like Brendan Gallagher and the recently traded P.K. Subban.  He has drafted busts for the Habs as well such as defenseman David Fischer and French-Canadian forward Louis Leblanc.

As well as the draft, Timmins is also in charge of amateur free agency. He has taken the opportunity to find some organizational depth such as Daniel Carr and Charlie Lindgren over the past few years. As well as David Desharnais earlier in his tenure.

Prior to his time in Montreal, Timmins spent a decade with the Ottawa Senators from the team’s entrance into the NHL in 1992 until 2002.  He spent 1999 thru 2002, as the Senators director of hockey operations. He was responsible for the scouting department, the AHL affiliate, budgeting and the daily operation of the hockey department.
