Blue Jackets head coach, Pascal Vincent, said about the Gaudreau benching, "...Everything is earned...it's not about your name, it's about what's in front of your jersey and who we believe are going to give us a chance to win..."


The Blue Jackets take on the Panthers on Monday, the Blue jackets will need more from Gaudreau as the season moves along.
