Columbus Blue Jackets fans will see several familiar faces tonight in Nationwide Arena when the Phoenix Coyotes visit.

Former Jackets Rostislav Klesla, Ray Whitney, Raffi Torres and Gilbert Brule along with former coach Dave King are in town.

King, Columbus’ first head coach is the Coyotes’ developmental coach.

Whitney leads Phoenix in points with 36.

Klesla, the Blue Jackets’ very first pick in franchise history, in 2000, number-4 overall will be making his first visit to Nationwide since being traded to the desert city team on February 28, 2011 for Scottie Upshaw and Sami Lepistro, who are no longer with Columbus.

Klesla, who was one of the most popular Blue Jackets players, has one goal, seven assists and a plus-5 rating in 36 games.

The first head coach the Columbus Blue Jackets ever had, Dave King is still a fan favorite everytime he comes to town with the Phoenix Coyotes. He still receives a nice ovation from the crowds at Nationwide Arena.

The fans at the Arena probably won’t see Coach King too much in the future because of he is changing jobs.

King has stepped down from his position as assistant coach to become the Coyotes’ development coach. He will oversee all pro player development, including working with coaches and players with minor-league Portland of the American Hockey League.

King’s first CBJ team in 2000-01 was 28-39-9-6 for 71 points; in 2001-02 the team regressed to 22-47-8-5 for 57 points and got off to a bad start in 2002-03 with a record of 14-20-4-2 for 34 points. King was fired January 7, 2003.
