#CBJ Best of the Web: Jan. 9

by Staff / Columbus Blue Jackets

The Jackets are back on top in the win column!

The Blue Jackets’ 4-2 win over the the Stars on Tuesday moved them back above the .500 mark for the first time since Oct. 25. With more healthy faces returning to the lineup, the Jackets continue to roll and are winners of 12 of their past 15 games. Things are looking good up and down the line in the CBJ organization, and fans had a lot to talk about!

Dillon Heatherington won a gold medal with Canada and both Anton Forsberg and Austin Madaisky were selected to the AHL All-Star Classic. It’s a pretty good week to look through the weekly prospect report at the Union Blue!

Still not enough World Juniors for you? We understand, it was a great tournament. Luckily, BS Hockey has us covered with the seven things they learned from the WJC.

The Jackets powered through early-season injury troubles and are playing winning hockey, so The Cannon can look back on that period with a touch of optimism. The injuries were rough, but they also allowed Columbus to bring some key new faces into the fold that have helped to make this team better.

The Cannon also touches on Mark Letestu, who returned from injury Tuesday and had an excellent game against Dallas, and his value to the organization moving forward.

The Union and Blue are getting ready for the All-Star festivities in Columbus and we hope you are, too! Here are some of their highlights for a jam-packed All-Star schedule.

Finally, the Jackets continue their push tonight against the Toronto Maple Leafs, a game The Hockey Writers believe is must-watch TV. Here’s why!
