Blue Jackets hire Jarmo Kekalainen as new GM


Recommended Posts

The Columbus Blue Jackets didn't waste any time on finding a new GM, as they announced the hiring of Jarmo Kekalainen today. He has previously been the amateur scouting director for St. Louis Blues, drafting Vladimir Tarasenko, T.J. Oshie and Alex Pietrangelo among others. He was also the chief scout in Ottawa where he drafted the likes of Jason Spezza.

So this guy knows how to build a successful team via draft. He is also solely responsible for bringing Teuvo Teräväinen into the Finnish Elite League.

I'm pretty proud to be a Finn on a day like this.
