Update – Vermette Deal Done!
By: Eric Smith • September 15th, 2009
Just talked to Scott Howson, “Vermette is done. 5 year extension.”
More to come as I am getting ready to interview Vermette. Check back.
Quotes from Vermette
“With Nash resigning, it definitely makes it a lot more attractive to stick around… It’s very exciting to be a part of this.”
“I like it here. I like how things are shaping up. I wanted to commit (for a long term).”
“I like it here. I wanted to commit (for a long term). It’s a young team with a lot of potential.”
My roots for the game come from Fort Wayne where the Komets of the IHL play. They are the most successful minor league hockey program in the U.S. drawing on average of over 10,000 people. Then as I have moved to the Columbus region and the Blue Jackets opened up shop, my passion for the sport as well as the NHL grew even more.
I am credentialed by the Blue Jackets and have been covering the team and continue to do so for Hockeybuzz.com since 2007. I have developed some great relationships with the team including front office, coaches and players. I continue to drive to give the Blue Jacket fanbase an inside view that is critical but fair.
