Via the Blue Jackets' twitter account - the ice being installed in the Ice Haus for the new season. Consider it your moment of Zen.
It's only July, but you and I both know that we're starting to quietly jones for the sound of skates on ice, the boom of the cannon, the roar as the goal horn sounds in Nationwide Arena. It's 91 days until the season opens, but we can help each other get through this! Come out to the Buffalo Wild Wings at 968 West 5th Avenue Sunday, August 15th to talk Blue Jackets, meet your friendly CBJ bloggers, and get a chance to hang out with fans during the dog days of summer!
The Columbus Blue Jackets have announced that they will be introducing their new head coach at a press conference on Tuesday, June 8, at 3pm. While no formal confirmation has been made, the Dispatch has reported that Scott Arniel will become the club's 6th head coach.
According to Twitterer Everett_Duke, who says he got it from a patch manufacturer's catalog, that's the 10th anniversary logo for the CBJ. True? Hard to confirm, but it certainly looks like it. I'd expect to see the "official" logo unveiling at the NHL draft party down at Nationwide on June 25th.
Coming soon - The Cannon is thrilled to announce that we'll be taking part in The Hockey Writers 2010 NHL Draft webcast, live from downtown Columbus! Watch this space for more details on how to listen in!
