Geoffrion Hired As Pro Scout For Blue Jackets

It didn’t take Blake Geoffrion long to move on to the next stage of his hockey career.

After announcing his retirement on Monday at the age of 25 due to a head injury, the former Nashville Predator and Montreal Canadien forward was hired by the Columbus Blue Jackets as a pro scout, the team announced on Tuesday.

Geoffrion, a second-round pick by the Predators back in 2006, is the grandson of Hall of Fame player Bernie Boom Boom Geoffrion.
