The moms behind the men who became Blue Jackets

Columbus squad takes moms to Chicago for first-ever mothers' trip

by Jeffrey Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

In suite 49 of Nationwide Arena on Thursday night, there was a lot of chatter, a lot of laughter -- and a lot of pride.  

Sixteen women came together to watch their mostly their sons but in some cases their brother or nephew play hockey for the Columbus Blue Jackets against the New York Islanders.   

The Jackets' first-ever mothers' trip weekend began with the players' moms coming together to watch Thursday night's home game against the Islanders. This weekend, the moms have traveled to Chicago with the players, at the organization's expense, to watch the Blue Jackets take on the Blackhawks on Saturday night.

by Blue Jackets Staff @BlueJacketsNHL /

The Columbus Blue Jackets have placed center Brandon Dubinsky on Injured Reserve retroactive to February 2 and added right wing Kole Sherwood to the roster on emergency recall from the Cleveland Monsters, Columbus' American Hockey League affiliate, club General Manager Jarmo Kekalainen announced today. 

Dubinsky, who has missed the past four games due to a hip injury, has collected five goals and six assists for 11 points with 34 penalty minutes in 37 outings during the 2018-19 season. He has also won 55.5 percent of face-offs taken this season. The Anchorage, Alaska native has registered 152-283-435 and 903 penalty minutes in 799 career NHL games.

Sherwood, 22, has notched 11-3-14 with 42 penalty minutes in 34 games with the Monsters this season, ranking fifth on the club in goals during his first full professional season. He also tallied 1-0-1 in a three-game stint with the ECHL's Jacksonville IceMen.

The New Albany, Ohio native has registered 11-3-14 and 44 penalty minutes in 36 career AHL games with the Monsters since making his pro debut at the end of the 2016-17 campaign. He tallied 75-104-179, 169 penalty minutes and was +33 in 180 career Ontario Hockey League games with the London Knights, Flint Firebirds and Kitchener Rangers from 2015-18, including 30-30-60 in 57 contests with the Rangers in 2017-18. Signed by the Blue Jackets to a three-year, entry level contract on July 7, 2015, the 6-1, 202-pound right wing played three seasons with the Ohio AAA Blue Jackets organization from 2012-15.

First-round pick Foudy flying through season

Jackets' No. 1 pick in 2018 draft lighting lamps in OHL

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

Liam Foudy's father played professional football. His mother competed as a sprinter in the Olympic Games. Foudy himself is a champion hurdler. 

So is there anything the Blue Jackets' first-round pick in the 2018 draft can't do athletically? 

"I've never really played baseball," Foudy said. "I don't know if I'm too good at that. I've played pretty much every sport, but baseball is one I've never really tried."

Postgame Hat Trick: Isles stymie Blue Jackets' offense

Columbus looks at ways to be better next time

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

The Blue Jackets' two-game tour through the best the Metropolitan Division has to offer ended with a pair of shutouts. 

First, Columbus blanked Washington on Tuesday night in what might have been the Blue Jackets' best performance of the season. 

Thursday night was much more frustrating for the home team. The Blue Jackets fell into a hole against the stingy New York Islanders and couldn't get out of it, suffering a 3-0 loss that ended a four-game winning streak.

FINAL: Islanders 3, Blue Jackets 0

Columbus can't get much going in Valentine's Day loss

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

The Blue Jackets were shut out for just the third time this season, as Columbus (32-21-3) saw its four-game winning streak end Thursday night against the first-place New York Islanders (34-17-6).

Game in a Paragraph 

One game after perhaps the Jackets' best performance of the season, the team wasn't as sharp against the Islanders. A pair of a breakaway goals by Casey Cizikas in the first two periods made it 2-0, and a late goal in the second gave New York a comfortable lead. The Isles bunkered down in the third and left with the win and their seventh shutout of the season.

Practice Report: Jackets not watching the standings yet

Plus: Keeping the energy up, Murray's career year, and more

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

Everyone knows this is an important week for the Columbus Blue Jackets.  

Washington, the team directly above Columbus in the standings, visited Nationwide Arena on Tuesday night. 

Tonight, it's the first-place New York Islanders who invade Nationwide Arena, giving the Blue Jackets another chance to chip away as they try to reach the top of the Metropolitan Division standings. 

Everyone knows this -- except perhaps the Blue Jackets themselves, if they are to be believed.

PREVIEW: Streaking Blue Jackets welcome first-place New York

Islanders visit Columbus for first time this season

by Jeff Svoboda @JacketsInsider /

BLUE JACKETS (31-20-3) vs. ISLANDERS (33-17-6)
Thursday, 7 p.m., Nationwide Arena (FOX Sports Ohio, CBJ appFOX Sports app, CD 102.5 FM


There seems to be little doubt the Blue Jackets have gotten better in each of the four games of the team's current win streak. 

So what can Columbus do for an encore against the first-place New York Islanders? 

OK, it's hard to imagine a much better effort than what the team turned in during Tuesday night's 3-0 blanking of the Capitals, as the defending Stanley Cup champions didn't get much traction in the game outside of isolated scoring chances until the final four minutes.
