Former Vancouver Canucks defenceman Marc Bergevin is currently working for the Los Angeles Kings as a Senior Advisor to General Manager Rob Blake, a role he took in early 2022.

Bergevin's name has circulated in the two years since whenever a General Manager position opens up in the National Hockey League, but now the former Canucks is reportedly in consideration to join a new team.

According to Dennis Berstein of The Fourth Period, Bergevin is in consideration for the vacant General Manager job with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Blue Jackets fired Jarmo Kekalainen earlier this year after more than a decade with the organization.

"Marc Bergevin, hired as senior advisor to GM Rob Blake in January 2022 is in consideration for the open Blue Jackets GM role" Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period said.



Bergevin, 58, had some success as a General Manager with the Montreal Canadiens, leading the team to the Stanley Cup Final in 2021 and Eastern Conference Final in 2014. Just over four months after the Canadiens went to the Stanley Cup Final, the team fired Bergevin and replaced him with Kent Hughes.

The Montreal native spent nine games with the Vancouver Canucks during the 2003-04 season after being traded to them by the Pittsburgh Penguins. In those nine games, he put up two assists and two penalty minutes. After the 2004 Stanley Cup Playoffs, where he appeared in three games with Vancouver, Bergevin announced his retirement from professional hockey.
