Amidst the recent dismissal of Jarmo Kekalainen as GM of the Columbus Blue Jackets, an unexpected name has emerged to take over the role.


Brandon Dubinsky Vies For Vacant Blue Jackets GM Role



In a tweet, Dubinsky announced his candidacy for the Blue Jackets GM opening, although it remains uncertain if he's entirely serious about pursuing the role.


After managing my mite team today I'm throwing my hat in the ring for the @BlueJacketsNHL GM opening! You know how to reach me!



Kekalainen's tenure, which began in 2013 and ended in February of this year, saw the team struggle to achieve playoff success despite several playoff appearances. With just one playoff series win under his leadership, the Blue Jackets opted for a change, citing the need for a fresh perspective.


Now, as the team looks to rebuild and plan for the future, Dubinsky's unconventional candidacy adds an intriguing twist to the search for their next GM.


Do you think Dubinsky is a good fit to take over as GM of the Columbus Blue Jackets?
