The Columbus Blue Jackets have named former NHLer Jarkko Ruutu as their European player development coach.
Ruutu retired from hockey in December after playing the last three seasons in the Finnish SM-liiga. He played 652 NHL games with Vancouver, Pittsburgh, Ottawa and Anaheim and GM Jarmo Kekalainen is looking forward to having Ruutu work with the Blue Jacket prospects. "I absolutely want a person and a player like Jarkko around our young guys," Kekalainen said. "This is a guy who worked his (butt) off and did everything he could to get to the league and stay there. His work ethic earned him everything he’s got. There’s a great lesson there." Sun, Jul 5, 2015 05:17:00 AM
