It's a…new Atkinson! Cam and his wife Natalie announce on Instagram that baby #2 is on the way.

Instagram from @camatkinson13: Team Atkinson is growing. Declan is getting a baby brother in March 2020 👨‍👩‍👦‍👦🐕💙

News has also come in that Declan Atkinson, one years old, has already begun training to take Korpisalo's position. Stay tuned for more updates. 

Sonny Milano had a very impressive game-winning goal against the Dallas Stars that completely stunned the audience.

And it seems like everyone is fired up about Milano's shot, including Coach Torts.

Tweet from @JacketsInsider: Torts on Sonny Milano's goal: "It's just, look at it. ... It's ridiculous. #CBJ

Now speaking of firing up, Oliver Bjorkstrand and Markus Nutivaara visit the Columbus Fire Station in preparation for the First Responders Night in the arena this Saturday.

Tweet from @JacketsInsider: No one tell Torts but here comes @OBjorkstrand down the pole. I think he���s officially a member of @ColsFire now #CBJ pic.twitter.com/jnQhcz7gLe

Bjorkstrand couldn't resist riding down the fire pole to see if being a firefighter would be a good post-hockey career. Maybe you should stick to the ice, Oliver.

Savard decided to test a new career out this week as well and became a bartender at North High Brew this past Monday.

A portion of the proceeds made during his drink pours will be donated to his new Movember campaign. Read more about the campaign and how to donate here: https://us.movember.com/mospace/7195557

This past weekend, the Jackets didn't travel to their game against the Blackhawks alone.
