Former Columbus Blue Jackets head coach Scott Arniel has confirmed to the media that he will be the coach of the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League.

The team is an affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks.

Arniel replaces Craig Mac Tavish, who left the Wolves to become the head of hockey operations for the Edmonton Oilers.

Arniel returns to the Canucks organization, where he spent two seasons as head coach of their AHL affiliate in Winnipeg before being hired by the Blue Jackets in 2010.

When Arniel was coach of the Blue Jackets, he often would get mad after losses and cut postgame press conferences short when he didn’t want to answer questions.

Former Columbus Blue Jackets right wing Chris Clark was very popular in his short time with the team. That might be a reason that he has been brought back in a new role with the team.

After being released from the American Hockey League team, the Providence Bruins in November, Clark had been looking to stay close to the game.

Columbus general manager Scott Howson has agreed to allow Clark to scout games for the Blue Jackets.

Clark, who played in 89 games for Columbus from 2009 to 2011, still lives in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington.

Clark also played for Calgary and Washington before joining Columbus.

In 607 NHL games, he scored 103 goals, assisted on 111 goals for 214 points.
