Blue Jackets Hire Todd Richards as Assistant Coach

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets announced today that former Minnesota Wild head coach Todd Richards has joined the club as an assistant coach.  Richards led the Wild to a 77-71-16 record from 2009-11.

“When looking at this position, I wanted someone with NHL head coaching experience who could come here and help us to do the right things and move our team forward and Todd fits that bill perfectly,” said Blue Jackets Head Coach Scott Arniel.  “I’ve coached against him numerous times and have always had great respect for him and how he prepared his teams.  Having been a part of the Minnesota, San Jose and Pittsburgh organizations the past several years, Todd brings a wealth of knowledge and experience that will be very valuable to me, our coaching staff and players.”
