COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Columbus Blue Jackets wrap up the 2009-10 season on Friday, Apr. 9 with a 7 p.m. contest against the Detroit Red Wings for Fan Appreciation Night. All fans in attendance will receive a team poster courtesy of Ohio Mulch. Festivities will also include numerous prize giveaways, a video salute to the fans and the chance to win game-worn jerseys directly from Blue Jackets players on the ice immediately following the game.
To highlight the festivities, one lucky fan will win a trip for two to Sweden to watch the Blue Jackets open their 10th season with a pair of games vs. the San Jose Sharks in Stockholm on Friday, Oct. 8 and Saturday, Oct. 9.
