Blue Jackets Sign Dubinsky to Six Year Contract Extension

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed forward Brandon Dubinsky to a six year contract extension worth $35.1 million, the team announced Friday. The club acquired the 28-year-old centre in July of 2012 when they shipped Rick Nash to the New York Rangers. The extension will keep Dubinsky in the fold through the 2020-2021 season and […]

Pittsburgh Penguins Eliminate Columbus Blue Jackets

It took an Evgeni Malkin hat trick to get it done, but the Pittsburgh Penguins have eliminated the Columbus Blue Jackets with a 4-3 victory in Game Six of their playoff series. The Penguins now await the winner of the New York Rangers/Philadelphia Flyers series. Pittsburgh held a four goal lead in Monday’s contest and […]

Penguins Have to Tighten Up to Beat Blue Jackets

It may seem obvious by now, but the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to have to be better if they expect to defeat the Columbus Blue Jackets and get out of the first round alive. These sorts of obvious statements are the stuff of hockey lore, sort of the “it is what it is” of hockey […]

Breaking It Down: Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets

The playoffs are here again, which means it’s time for the return of the celebrated Breaking It Down series. We’ll continue with an overview of the Pittsburgh Penguins vs. Columbus Blue Jackets series, which commences on Wednesday night.

Los Angeles Kings Acquire Marian Gaborik

The Los Angeles Kings have acquired forward Marian Gaborik from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Matt Frattin and two draft picks.

Columbus Signs Oliver Bjorkstrand

While most hockey fans were either locked in on the World Juniors or resting comfortably until action recommences on Friday, the Columbus Blue Jackets were signing a key component for the team’s future. The Blue Jackets signed right winger Oliver Bjorkstrand to a three-year entry level contract. The club selected the 18-year-old Danish forward 89th […]

Gaborik Breaks Collarbone in Return

Marian Gaborik’s return to NHL action lasted about four shifts. After missing 17 games with a knee injury, the Columbus Blue Jackets winger was injured after being sandwiched between Braydon Coburn and Zac Rinaldo of the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday night. The Blue Jackets wound up taking the win, but losing Gaborik again has to sting. […]

New York Rangers Trade Marian Gaborik to Columbus

The New York Rangers have traded forward Marian Gaborik to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Derrick Brassard, Derek Dorsett and John Moore. The deal comes on the heels of the Rangers’ acquisition of Ryane Clowe and makes sense from their standpoint, with Gaborik hardly happy and coach John Tortorella hardly happy with him. Gaborik […]

Blue Jackets Name Jarmo Kekalainen as New GM

The Columbus Blue Jackets wasted little time replacing Scott Howson in the general manager position, bringing in Jarmo Kekalainen to fill the void. He’s from Finland, which makes him the first European to be a GM in the NHL. Somewhere, Donald S. Cherry is bursting out of one of his trademark suits… “One of my dreams […]
