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. These two teams have never met in the post-season and don’t appear to be evenly matched on […]

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. The two-time Olympian for Slovakia brings offensive punch to the Kings to a certain extent, but Gaborik is also a fairly streaky player and the rub on him is that he lacks […]

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 […]

Blue Jackets Fire GM Scott Howson

The Columbus Blue Jackets have fired general manager Scott Howson (not pictured). This is clearly a response to the slow start the Jackets have been enjoying thus far in 2013, with a solid 13th place in the Western Conference and a record of 4-7-2 through the last 13 games to show for themselves. Howson, he […]

Rick Nash Traded to New York Rangers

The deal is done. Rick Nash is now a New York Rangers. The Columbus Blue Jackets traded the superstar to Broadway for centres Artem Anisimov and Brandon Dubinsky, defenceman Tim Erixon and a first round pick. The deal puts the cap on what was a protracted saga between Nash and the Blue Jackets. Columbus GM Scott Howson was in no mood […]
