Bob Boughner, the former Sabres defenseman, is leaving the NHL to head back to his junior team.
Boughner has stepped down as Scott Arniel's assistant coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets after one season. He is the president of Windsor Spitfires and has decided to return to run the junior team full time.
"While I am disappointed that Bob is leaving our staff, I completely understand and support his decision to put his family first," Arniel said. "He worked extremely hard last season and was a great asset to myself, the coaching staff and our players. For that, I am very thankful and I wish him all the best moving forward."
