Blue Jackets' next GM (update) 

February, 13, 2013

UPDATE: The Columbus Blue Jackets made the the hiring of new GM Jarmo Kekalainen official at a news conference Wednesday morning.

"Change was necessary," president of hockey operations John Davidson said after the announcement, according to Jackets beat writer Aaron Portzline. "The [decision] comes from the gut. Jarmo is a driven man. He's going to help us."

But when? There's no immediate timetable for the Finn's arrival into Columbus as immigration issues still need to be sorted through, Portzline reports.
