#SNDraft Scott Arniel likely to be named Asst. Coach in SJ.HC Todd McLellan looks to be getting some additional NHL experience behind bench.— Roger Millions (@RogMillions) June 21, 2012
According to Roger Millions from Rogers Sportsnet, @RogMillions on Twitter, it looks like former Columbus Blue Jackets Head Coach Scott Arniel is "likely" to take a job as one of Todd McLellan's assistants this year. Arniel coached 123 games with the Blue Jackets, going 45-60-18 in that time. He was fired mid-way through this past season when the Blue Jackets were a dismal 11-25-5. Hiring the former BJ's coach would give McLellan an assistant with experience as both a coach and a former NHL player with over 700 games of experience. Any thoughts on the possible new coach?
