Nicklaus to drop first puck for Blue Jackets' opener

Jack Nicklaus, golf's all-time leader in major championship victories, will drop the ceremonial first pick for the Columbus Blue Jackets' opening game against the Calgary Flames on Oct. 4.

Nicklaus, a Columbus native, owns 73 official PGA Tour victories, including a record 18 major championships. He will be on hand following the conclusion of the second day of play at the 2013 Presidents Cup tournament, which is being held at Nicklas' Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.

Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.
