According to the Columbus Post-Dispatch, the Blue Jackets have offered Hamilton Bulldogs coach Guy Boucher their vacant head coaching position.

Boucher led the Montreal Canadiens' American League affiliate to a first-place finish in the AHL's Western Conference with a 115-point season. The Bulldogs were beat out by the Texas Stars in Game 7 of the conference final. 

It was Boucher's first year as the Bulldogs' head coach.
