One door closed but another one opened this week for Blake Geoffrion. After announcing his retirement from hockey at the young age of 25, Geoffrion has already found a new job as a scout for the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Geoffrion released this statement on Monday.

“After suffering an injury in November and taking time to recover and reflect, I have decided to step away from the game of hockey for the time being. I would like to thank Geoff Molson, Marc Bergevin, the entire Montreal Canadiens organization as well as the Hamilton Bulldogs organization for everything they have done for me. They have been unwavering in their support, professionalism and kindness. I cannot thank them enough ”
