Blue Jackets director of amateur scouting Tyler Wright leaving the organization\'s hockey operations department

COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets announced today that Director of Amateur Scouting Tyler Wright is leaving the organization after six years as a member of the club’s hockey operations staff.

“On behalf of our organization, I want to thank Tyler for his years of service to the Columbus Blue Jackets,” said club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen. “Tyler has been an important part of the hockey club, first as a player and most recently as one of our directors of amateur scouting, and we wish him nothing but the best in his future endeavors.”

Wright was selected by the club in the 2000 Expansion Draft and played 309 games as a Blue Jacket, registering 57 goals and 51 assists for 108 points with 436 penalty minutes. He rejoined the organization in July 2007 as development coach and has served as one of the club’s directors of amateur scouting, along with Paul Castron, since August 2011.

“Leaving the organization was a difficult decision, but I feel that it is the right time for me to move on,” said Wright. “I have a great deal of respect for the McConnell family, the Blue Jackets and all of the people I have worked with over the years and have nothing but great memories about my time with the organization.”
