Jarmo Kekalainen is likely not the first name that pops into people’s head when they think about a hockey general manager. He’s not a Stan Bowman or a Lou Lamoriello and the only other team he’s been a GM for is the Jokerit, who were then in the Finnish Elite League. With some key moves, however, Kekalainen has helped the Blue Jackets go from bottom of the league to almost winning the President’s Trophy in the 2016-2017 season. With the moves he’s been making, it’s no wonder why fans these days seem to be singing his praises more often than not.
