It's been a historic 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs for Columbus. Lucky wardrobe choices have been worn during games, fans flocked to Nationwide Arena for an open practice, and the buzz around the city is big.

For one family in particular, the timing has been appropriate to honor one of their son's passions: the Blue Jackets.

"This is the first time we have scattered his ashes anywhere," Jhan said.

They chose to leave a little bit of their son in the places that brought him the most joy by sprinkling his ashes around the Arena District.

"We thought it'd be great if we took some of his ashes up today and scatter them at the R Bar," Jhan said. "[We] scattered some in front of the [Nationwide] Arena and, hopefully, it makes him happy and hopefully it helps him to push those goals in for the Blue Jackets."
