Making the Case - Bob for Vezina

+

Though a lot of Columbus fans would say that Sergei Bobrovsky is the clear Vezina winner, it's still not a done deal. The Blue Jackets own Rob Mixer put together a great case for why "Bob" is worthy, and it looks like the team is trying to get fans behind the campaign on social media to help infuence the voters before this summer's NHL awards.

Save Cleland Ice Rink!

2

Cleland Ice Rink is a hockey rink that serves the soldiers and families at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. It was just renovated, it pays for itself with rink fees, and it hosts over 75,000 skaters a year. So of course it's being threatened with closure because of the sequestration budget cuts. Please join Defending The Blue Line and Change.org to help save the Cleland rink!

Awesome CBJ Social Suite Story

+

A fantastic story about a visit to the Social Suite by Puckbuddy's blogger Lyssie. Why am I fanshotting this? Because Lyssie is trans, and this was her first ever public outing as a woman. The Jackets welcomed her, gave her some of the best seats in the house, and made it an incredible and memorable experience. Huge props to Rob Mixer and the rest of the social suite team, and way to go Lyssie!

NHL veteran Dominic Moore opens up about his wife, their life and her death

+

This is an amazing read. Sometimes it's good to stop, step back, and remember that these guys are also human beings. I don't know when--or if--Moore might consider returning to the NHL, but if it's character this team is looking for, this man has it.

Columbus player wearing #2 in training camp?

1

Hey guys, I'm a Caps fan and I read Japers Rink all the time, which is what led me here to ask this question. I've got a CBJ helmet with #2 on it from training camp - the only problem is I don't know what training camp and I'm curious if any player wore it. It's a Reebok helmet with an Oakley straight cut visor, if that helps - I know it's a longshot but I figured you guys might have pics from training camp this year. Thanks!

Super Shot Search

Partner to the Usage Charts, Greg Sinclair also has shot charts in one place. That is, NHL-provided data on shot distance and location graphed in one place (and averaged, too). You can pick team shots, team shots with a particular player on ice, or shots for a player. It's pretty cool and has kept me preoccupied all evening.
