2016-2017 Season Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets

The Columbus Blue Jackets walked out of the 2015-2016 season with a 34-40-8 record, good for last in the Metropolitan Division. They fell short of a playoff berth again, but there is a general feeling around this franchise that the same core that took them into the post-season in 2013-2014 can do the same again […]

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed defenceman Seth Jones to a six-year contract worth a reported average annual value of $5.4 million. The team made the announcement on Wednesday.

Blue Jackets Sign Prout to Extension

The Columbus Blue Jackets have signed defenceman Dalton Prout to a two-year contract extension, with an average annual value of $1.575 million. Prout will be paid $1.25 million in 2016-2017 and $1.9 million in 2017-2018. This is a decent raise from his current $1.075 million deal. The 26-year-old from Kingsville is a big and bruising […]

Blue Jackets Trade Johansen to Nashville

The Columbus Blue Jackets have traded centre Ryan Johansen to the Nashville Predators for defenceman Seth Jones. Many people saw a deal like this coming, what with Johansen benched by Columbus head coach John Tortorella.

Johansen Benched as Trade Talk Picks up in Columbus

With head coach John Tortorella scratching Columbus Blue Jackets forward Ryan Johansen for Thursday’s game against the Arizona Coyotes, the trade rumours have been picking up. Again.

Blue Jackets Fire Richards, Hire Tortorella

After setting an NHL record by going winless in seven games, the Columbus Blue Jackets have fired head coach Todd Richards and have hired John Tortorella to take his place. “We had some bad performances and kept losing,” general manager Jarmo Kekalainen said. “We came to a decision after [the game Tuesday], this can’t go […]

2015-2016 Season Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets

When the dust settled on the 2014-2015 season, the Columbus Blue Jackets stood with a 42-35-5 record.

Unfortunately, their 89 points were well shy of the Pittsburgh Penguins and left them on the outside looking […]

Chicago general manager Stan […]

Jared Boll Suspended Three Games

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Jared Boll has been suspended three games for his check to the head of Anaheim Ducks forward Patrick Maroon. The incident took place on Tuesday at 4:02 of the second period. Given the rules of the modern NHL, this is a pretty open and shut case. As the NHL’s Department of […]

David Clarkson Out Four to Six Weeks

The jokes have already been made, but it’s hard to escape the irony of the Columbus Blue Jackets announcing David Clarkson as being out for four to six weeks.
