COLUMBUS, Ohio – If you've seen dozens of tweets in your timeline about NHL team home openers, it's no coincidence. The green light has been given.

And so we're following suit. Are you ready?

The Blue Jackets open the new season on Thursday, Oct. 13 at Nationwide Arena when they host the Boston Bruins. Unfortunately, we don't have much more information than that at the moment, but don't worry. There's more coming.

It's expected the NHL and its 30 member clubs will announce their full regular season schedules early this week (probably tomorrow), at which time you can analyze the road trips, back-to-backs, rivalry matchups and which games you'll be traveling to see.

What's more exciting is that in under four months' time, we'll be playing hockey again in Columbus.

Stick with us on BlueJackets.com in the days and weeks ahead as we continue to get you set for the 2016-17 season, the NHL Draft, development camp and free agency. There are busy (and fun!) times in front of us.
