As the NHL and the Columbus Blue Jackets began the unveiling of a one-of-a-kind legacy project at the Ronald McDonald House as part of the 2015 All-Star weekend, a small voice interrupted the proceedings.

Hearing a child say these words drove home the realities of families whose children face significant health concerns. It's...
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Lights, camera, stage fright?
Columbus Blue Jackets forward Ryan Johansen admits to having some.
It's not the spotlight of his first NHL All-Star Game or his friends and family who have come to Columbus to be there for Johansen's big weekend that have him a little nervous. It's his inclusion in the Honda NHL Breakaway Challenge, which will take place Saturday during...

The Columbus Blue Jackets entered Saturday’s game against the Boston Bruins on a four-game losing streak. They didn’t do themselves any favors on this play.
During the first period, the Blue Jackets got caught out of position when three forwards went for a line change after a poor clearing attempt. The Bruins pounced on the chance, as defenseman Torey Krug raced into the attacking...
This isn’t quite a true CBJ Prospect Watch since I only saw one of these guys (Bjorkstrand) in person, so this will be a mini version of what we normally do.
I watched every game these guys played (expect for the Boxing Day Denmark game), and took notes on how they did in each game. I’ve compiled all that qualitative information, combined it with some quantitative information...
