Per the Athletic’s Max Bultman…
Kris Draper, has indeed been promoted to the Red Wings’ director of Amateur Scouting. Ryan Rezmierski, formerly of Nashville, and Jesse Wallin, formerly of St. Louis, are the new Chief Scouts.— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) August 16, 2019
Looks like former Harvard asst. Rob Rassey and former Saskatoon Blades Asst. Bryce Thoma have been added as amateur scouts as well, per the team’s website.— Max Bultman (@m_bultman) August 16, 2019

You can see the changes to the team’s website here.
Update: Per Michigan Hockey’s Michael Caples:
The Detroit Red Wings have added another Michigan name to the team’s management staff.
Livonia native Phil Osaer is joining Steve Yzerman’s growing team in Detroit, per an update on the Red Wings’ staff webpage.
Osaer will be the team’s head of goaltending scouting and development, having a hand both in selecting the Wings’ netminders of the future and guiding them once they’re part of the organizational depth chart.
The former Ferris State goaltender worked as a goaltending scout for Yzerman in Tampa Bay during the 2018-19 season.
Update #2: Also from Caples:
Adam Nightingale has gotten a promotion with the Detroit Red Wings, and it’s a big one.
The Cheboygan native is now an assistant coach for the Original Six franchise according to the Red Wings’ official site, moving up from the team’s video coach.
Nightingale, 39, has spent the last two seasons with the Wings under head coach Jeff Blashill, after working one season as the video coach for the Buffalo Sabres.
Here’s even more, from the Detroit News:
The Red Wings also hired two amateur chief scouts, Ryan Rezmierski and Jesse Wallin, and two additional scouts, Bryce Thoma and Rob Rassey.
Rezmierski (Ann Arbor, University of Michigan) was a scout for the past eight years with the Nashville Predators and a former director of player personnel with USA Hockey’s National Team Development Program.
Wallin, a first-round draft pick by the Red Wings in 1996, was a scout with the Stanley Cup champion Blues for the past six years and a former head coach of the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League for five years.
DetroitHockey.net’s Clark Rasmussen summarizes the changes, although it should be noted that Brian Mahoney-Wilson is no longer listed as a goaltending coach:
This is, I believe, a full recap of all of the changes the Wings just made to the staff page on their website. Some were already known, some are frivolous. I left out the changes to some of their doctors’ names. pic.twitter.com/mcp61FLYFe— DetroitHockey.Net (@detroithockey96) August 16, 2019
