Blue Jackets Keep Gallant
Don't call Gerard Gallant an interim coach anymore. GM Doug MacLeanwill announced Friday that Gallant was named head coach for the Blue Jackets. MacLean added, "He is an outstanding young coach who knows the league and has a vision for what he wants to see from our players on the ice."
Gallant is an NHL veteran who played 11 seasons before retiring in 1995.
