History Of The Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets came into being when Columbus Hockey Limited submitted an application for an NHL expansion team in 1996. The NHL awarded the group a franchise in 1997 along with Nashville, Tennessee, Atlanta, Georgia and St. Paul, Minnesota. The Blue Jackets joined the Nashville Predators in the 2000 NHL Expansion Draft that was hosted in Calgary, Alberta and signed their first player Niagara University goalie Greg Gardner on May 4, 2000 and a week later negotiated their first ever trade sending their fourth and ninth round entry draft picks to the New York Islanders in return for forward Chris Nielsen. The club selected a total of eleven players in the expansion draft and announced the following month their first Head Coach was going to be Dave King who had previously coached the Calgary Flames and Team Canada.
The team name and logo honors Ohio’s Civil War history and the Blue Jackets returned professional hockey to the state which was once the home of the Cleveland Barons who played in the NHL from 1976-1978.
The team colors are Union blue, goal red, capital silver and white. The team is in the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference.
There have been a number of prominent players to have played for the Columbus Blue Jackets including Jack Johnson (2011-present), Marian Gaborik (2012-present), Sergei Bobrovsky (2012-present), David Vyborny (2000-2008), Ray Whitney (2000-2003), Bryan Berard (2005-2007), Fredrik Modin (2006-2010), Steve Mason (2008-2013), Rick Nash (2002-2012) and Sergei Fedorov (2005-2008).
While the Columbus Blue Jackets have not won any Stanley Cups or Conference or Division Championships, they continue to improve as the franchise matures. The team finished the 2012-2013 season with a 24-17-7 record earning a franchise history best winning percentage of .573. Goalie Sergei Bobrovsky was named winner of the Vezina Trophy on June 15, 2013 as the leagues’ outstanding goalie that season.
