Columbus Blue Jackets Win Streak Halts at 16

The Washington Capitals may have played spoilers on Thursday night as they defeated the Columbus Blue Jackets with a 5-0 victory, but Sergei Bobrovsky and Co. still have an awful lot to be proud of. The team’s winning streak came to an end at 16, good enough to grant them the second-longest NHL winning streak […]

John Tortorella Wins 500th Game

There may have been a measure of poetic justice at work when Columbus Blue Jackets head coach John Tortorella picked up his 500th career win. The victory came in overtime as his team faced off against the Vancouver Canucks, with the Jackets winning by a final score of 5-4. The win made Tortorella the first […]

The Metropolitan Division is (Mostly) Awesome Right Now

If it seems like the Metropolitan Division is dominant these days, it is. In fact, the top five teams in the division went 17-1-0 this past week. The fifth-place Washington Capitals have 37 points as of this writing, while the division-leading New York Rangers have 41 points. That’s a differential of four points, I’m told. […]

Columbus Defenceman Seth Jones Out Three Weeks

Columbus Blue Jackets defenceman Seth Jones will miss three weeks due to a hairline fracture of his right foot. The injury was sustained on Saturday as his club faced off against the St. Louis Blues for a 2-1 loss. Jones got tangled up with Patrik Berglund. The Blue Jackets placed Jones on the injured reserve […]

Columbus Lights Up Montreal, Montoya for 10-0 Victory

On Friday night, the Columbus Blue Jackets demolished the Montreal Canadiens by a final score of 10-0. That, in and of itself, is newsworthy. But what’s also newsworthy is that goalie Al Montoya was between the pipes for all 10 Columbus goals. Montreal headed into Columbus with a 9-0-1 record and hadn’t allowed any regulation […]

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 […]

Columbus Signs Defenceman Seth Jones to Contract Extension

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. He was scratched on December 17 of 2015 against the Arizona Coyotes after sitting out the full third period of […]

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. Of course, Johansen has been the subject of trade rumours for weeks now and Thursday’s healthy scratch situation won’t help quell those by any degree. The Blue Jackets […]
