Jody Shelley Retires and joins CBJ Front Office
 
Per Dave Isaac http://blogs.courierpostonline.com/f...-front-office/


Quote:

Jody Shelley decided last month that the time was right to retire after three years of junior hockey, four years in the minors and 11 years in the NHL. He was ready to hang up the gloves after more than 1,500 minutes in the penalty box. Now, he is coming home. Shelley, who played for the Blue Jackets from 2000 to ’08, is rejoining the organization, this time in a front-office capacity.

The announcement could come as soon as today. “The job sounds like a little bit of media and a little bit of everything else,” Shelley said last night. “It’s exciting for me.” In part, Shelley will fill a void left by the semi-retirement of radio voice George Matthews, who will call only a limited number of games next season. Bob McElligott will slide over to the play-by-play chair, and Shelley will handle some of the color commentator work for home games.

The job description is still being formulated — and growing. Shelley might be between the benches as a second analyst on the TV side. He might do some television work during intermissions. He might be involved with coach Todd Richards’ weekly radio show. Certainly, he will be used in an ambassador capacity on the business side and with community outreach initiatives. It is one of his strengths. - [/url]

Why are the BJs stealing our front office personnel? I can't believe we let one get away.

Jody Shelley was a good guy. Not his fault Holmgren gave him a million dollar deal for what he brought to the table. Good luck to him in his future endeavors. Might end up becoming a real good hockey personnel guy like Dave Brown is.

Homer will have to draft Klotz types in the second round now, just to stay ahead of the Jackets:sarcasm:

DrinkFightFlyers 08-09-2013 12:46 PM

I wonder how much CBJ is paying him. Think their boards are freaking out because he is getting a couple hundred thousand more than he deserves? :sarcasm:

Due respect, but we're happy because Jody's coming home where he belongs :)

A couple hundred thousand? It was more like a 1 contract spot, 1 roster spot, and 1.1 million more than he deserved.

I'm glad the last remnants of the utter disaster known as the 2010 Offseason are now gone for good.

And he is mercifully gone. Even Walker has taken his leave. It's beautiful.

What a crap offseason that was. Celebrate a Finals run by making the team worse. :shakehead

I agree.

It makes me feel old, I remember watching Jody captain the Mooseheads back in the day when I was a kid. Guy is 100% class, amazing team mate, and amazing human being. Wish him the best

RinaldoZac 08-09-2013 08:29 PM

I believe he is going into reporting

StandingCow 08-09-2013 08:48 PM

Well there goes our cup chances!

But seriously, best of luck to Jody.

If that makes you feel old, I played against him in minor hockey lol. He was actually a pretty good scorer in his pre mooseheads day, had reach for days and never quit.
