It hasn’t been an easy transition for the Columbus Blue Jackets since they entered the NHL as an expansion team in 2000. In the 10+ years as a franchise, the Blue Jackets have earned a playoff berth only once. This occurred during the 2008-2009 season when they won a franchise best 41 games. Columbus was swept by the Detroit Red Wings in the opening round of the playoffs. Rick Nash leads the organization in points, goals, and assists. Nash spent a decade skating for the Blue Jackets after being the 1st overall selection in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. Nash also holds numerous other records for the organization to make him one of the more prominent players to skate for Columbus. Current Blue Jacket R. J. Umberger has quickly moved up the rankings in his short time with the franchise. Score with TicketCity - the place to go for Columbus Blue Jackets hockey tickets.
