Filatov headed to Columbus early
According to Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch, Blue Jackets left winger Nikita Filatov has told the team he will arrive in Columbus Wednesday, six weeks ahead of teaining camp, to begin preparations for the coming season.

Earlier this summer, the Blue Jackets sent development coach Tyler Wright to Russian to monitor Filatov's workouts and  hear his thoughts on returning to the NHL for the 2010-11 season.
Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
