Columbus Blue Jackets Tickets for Sale
September has approached and hockey season is on the horizon. As NHL fans come together again, there is a new vibe of excitement in the air surrounding the Columbus Blue Jackets. The team was commonly known as the lowest standing team and maintained that reputation for several seasons. Ticket sales were down, and fans just did not have a lot of faith in the Columbus Blue Jackets anymore. Being at the bottom became customary and was a place that seemed to be set aside exclusively for the team.
But last season, after 19 games, the Blue Jackets turned it around. And in the last two months of the season, they tied for eighth place in the Western conference and lost a tiebreaker to the Minnesota Wilds. With this renewed sense of victory, fans began to fill the seats again.
As the NHL begins preparations for the new season, the Blue Jackets are ready to play and await with positive anticipation. John Davidson, the Blue Jackets' director of hockey operations has expressed that there is a different feeling going into this new season that is unique to the feelings from previous seasons.
The club opened training camp on Wednesday and the Blue Jackets play their first exhibition game against the Pittsburgh Penguins this Saturday. Many of this year's team members are young with impressive backgrounds including Sergei Brobrovsky, who was the Blue Jackets' best goaltender last season.
It is clear that there is a different feeling going into this season after years of bad trades, defeats, and dysfunction. The Columbus Blue Jackets hope to add a second trip to the playoff's in the club's 12 season, and beyond. Building on last season's success, the city is buzzing with excitement, and the league is feeling high hopes from their fans for the first time in a long time.
