The Columbus Blue Jackets haven't had a lot of success this year scoring on the power play. Now it appears that a hall-of-fame player is going to come in and hopefully shore it up.
Martin St. Louis, formerly of the New York Rangers and Tampa Bay Lightning has joined the Blue Jackets as a special teams consultant.
John Tortorella, who coached St. Louis from 2000-08: Were still developing his role, but he has so much knowledge about our game and what it takes to be successful, both individually and within the team concept, that hell be a great asset to our players. #CBJ

"It is a tremendous honor to have the opportunity to work with the Columbus Blue Jackets," said St. Louis via a team press release. "I truly love the game. I have been coaching my boys since my retirement, so I am excited to share my knowledge while still being able to coach my kids. I'm looking forward to working with the coaching staff and players in Columbus."
Given their poor play on the man advantage they can use all the help they can get. Bringing in an old offensive dynamo like St. Louis should help in even the smallest ways.
