Happy Friday, everyone!
One week is all that separates us from dropping the puck on the 2013-14 season and opening night at Nationwide Arena. I'm extra fired up today after the team announced yesterday that golf legend Jack Nicklaus is going to drop the ceremonial puck at center ice prior to the game. I literally cannot wait.
Training Camp (presented by OhioHealth) has wrapped up and today marks the annual Blue Jackets Foundation at Double Eagle. We'll have coverage on our official social media channels, so make sure to watch out for pictures and videos throughout the day.
Ok, let's get right to the links:
