The Blue Jackets Fire GM Scott Howson

USATSI_8383862_154224518_lowresThe Columbus Blue Jackets have announced that general manager and executive vice president Scott Howson has been relieved of his duties according to TSN.

The Blue Jackets got off to another slow starting, sitting 13th in the Western Conference with a 4-7-3 record.

Howson was named the Blue Jackets GM on June 15th, 2007, and was only able to get the team into the playoffs once. They finished in the bottom 10 in the league in four of the five seasons that Howson was at the helm.

“Scott Howson is a caring man who gave everything he had to the Columbus Blue Jackets over the past six years,” said Blue Jackets’ President of Hockey Operations John Davidson. “This was a difficult decision but one that I thought was in the best interest of moving our hockey club forward. I have enjoyed working with Scott and want to thank him for his service.”

Blue Jackets president John Davidson has said he has a short list of candidates and could have a new general manager in place in a couple days.

Howson will be best remember as the GM who traded Rick Nash. Howson sent Nash, along with Steven Delisle and a 2013 conditional third round pick to the New York Rangers for Brandon Dubinsky, Artem Anisimov, Tim Erixon and a 2013 first round draft pick.

Howson also traded for Jeff Carter, who clearly wasn’t happy to be dealt to Columbus. He sent a 2010 first round pick and Jakub Voracek to the Philadelphia Flyers for Carter. The first round pick turned out to be Sean Couturier. Carter lasted only 39 games in Columbus before Howson traded him to the Los Angeles Kings for defenseman Jack Johnson and a 2012 or 2013 first round pick. The Blue Jackets chose not to use the pick last year, so they’ll have the Kings pick this year.
