Noted in the Crunch Blog:
Former Blue Jackets coach Gerard Gallant is in town for the Crunch games Friday, Saturday and Monday. He’s giving scouting a try with Columbus. It’s the first hockey-related work he’s done since the team let him go earlier this season.
“It’s sort of a trial run for me, see if I like it, see if I enjoy it,” Gallant said. “It (scouting) is not the same type of pressure as when you’re coaching a game. You’re scouting for the future of the franchise. I think it’s an important job.”
