Family, dogs and hat tricks helped make this past CBJ Holiday Season one to remember.

This Holiday Season may have come and gone, but the Dog Days will never be over.

and Markus Nutivaara's dog, on the other hand, seems to have gotten tired playing Fortnite and watching Rom-Coms with his parents.

Cam Atkinson and his family had the chance to smile up for a digital christmas insta-card, giving everyone a case of baby fever.

However, the family love doesn't stop there.

Seth Jones substituted time on the ice for time with the family and even got to snap a pic with his close brother.

As soon as the presents were opened and the eggnog was found empty, the players got ready to get back to rockin' around Nationwide Arena.

And while being back, Zach Werenski didn't fail to end CBJ's 2019 with a bang.

Tweet from @PR_NHL: Zach Werenski became the third defenseman in franchise history to score a hat trick, joining Deron Quint (March 9, 2001) and Bryan Berard (Jan. 8, 2006). #NHLStats https://t.co/HZMwTIHY7I

Werenski became just the third defenseman inn CBJ history to perform a hat trick, all of which gave his team an incredible win the night of New Years Eve.

Merz was even able to celebrate his very first CBJ win with the team, making a great and memorable start to the new year.

What can we look forward to for the Blue Jackets this year? A lot. But one thing in particular is something we are highly anticipating.

Tweet from @BlueJacketsNHL: SEE YOU SOON #NHLAllStar

With the announcement of who is playing in the NHL All Star game, we are extremely excited to watch our very own Seth Jones and Joonas Korpisalo bring their all to the game!
