from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch,
The Blue Jackets, off to a woeful 1-9-1 start, may be on the verge of making substantial changes.
Multiple NHL sources have informed The Dispatch early Sunday that Jackets president Mike Priest has contacted Ken Hitchcock about returning as the club’s coach, and that former Calgary Flames general manager Craig Button has been contacted about taking on the same job with the Jackets.
Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson and/or coach Scott Arniel could be replaced by Monday, the sources indicated
At the very least, Button, Hitchcock – and potentially other head coach or general manager candidates who may have been contracted – have been put on high alert this weekend.
