Hockey season is almost here, folks. After an offseason of uncertainty, contract debates, and the future being up in the air, the Columbus Blue Jackets are about to open their season.

For anyone among the fan base who may enjoy betting on sports (legally, of course), or are interested in where the Jackets stack up against the competition, here are some odds as the season opens.


Sergei Bobrovsky is currently the Vezina favorite. After being snubbed last season as a finalist, the two time Vezina winner is the favorite to take home the hardware this season. Full odds are as follows:

Who will win the Vezina Trophy for being the NHL’s top Goaltender?

Sergei Bobrovsky 9/2

Connor Hellebuyck 5/1

Andrei Vasilevskiy 5/1

John Gibson 8/1

Braden Holtby 9/1

Devan Dubnyk 11/1

Carey Price 12/1

Pekka Rinne 15/1

Marc-Andre Fleury 18/1

Matt Murray 18/1

Jonathan Quick 18/1

Tuukka Rask 20/1

Frederik Andersen 25/1

Martin Jones 25/1

Roberto Luongo 40/1

Antti Raanta 40/1

Mike Smith 40/1


Before his injury Tuesday night, Seth Jones was one of two players listed at 13/2 odds to win the trophy. His odds will take a hit with the injury, but if he recovers quickly, he will still have a chance to win the trophy.

Who will win the James Norris Trophy as the NHL’s best defenseman?

Erik Karlsson 5/2

Victor Hedman 4/1

Brent Burns 13/2

Seth Jones 13/2

Roman Josi 20/1

Alex Pietrangelo 20/1

Ivan Provorov 20/1

Dustin Byfuglien 30/1

Ryan Ellis 30/1

Ryan Suter 30/1


Artemi Panarin is the only Blue Jacket currently listed with odds to win the Art Ross as top scorer in the NHL. At best, he is considered a long shot - this award is likely Connor McDavid’s to lose.

Who will win the Art Ross Trophy as the NHL’s points leader?

Connor McDavid 11/4

Sidney Crosby 17/2

Nikita Kucherov 10/1

Nathan MacKinnon 14/1

Evgeni Malkin 14/1

Mark Scheifele 14/1

John Tavares 16/1

Claude Giroux 18/1

Alexander Ovechkin 30/1

Artemi Panarin 30/1

Auston Matthews 33/1

Aleksander Barkov 40/1

Jamie Benn 40/1

Jack Eichel 40/1

Filip Forsberg 40/1

Johnny Gaudreau 40/1

Brad Marchand 40/1

Blake Wheeler 40/1

Tyler Seguin 40/1

Vladimir Tarasenko 40/1

Jakub Voracek 40/1

Nicklas Backstrom 50/1

Mathew Barzal 50/1

Logan Couture 50/1

Ilya Kovalchuk 50/1

Jonathan Marchessault 50/1

David Pastrnk 50/1

Alexander Radulov 50/1

Leon Draisaitl 55/1

Joe Pavelski 60/1

Sebastian Aho 65/1


Again, Artemi Panarin checks in for the Blue Jackets here. If the Blue Jackets win the division or the President’s Trophy while Panarin posts a monster season, he has a chance to bring this one home.
