Columbus to host NHL All-Star game in 2013 @NHLdotcom

OTTAWA (AP) - The Columbus Blue Jackets will host the 2013 edition of the NHL All-Star game.

Commissioner Gary Bettman made the announcement Saturday at the NHL Board of Governors meetings.

The Blue Jackets, who play in Nationwide Arena, had applied for hosting rights in 2013, 2014 or 2015. Next year's All-Star weekend will be Jan. 26-27.

It was welcome news for a team that is struggling this season. The Blue Jackets are 13-30-6 with a league-low 32 points. Only the Tampa Bay Lightning (165) have allowed more goals this season than Columbus (163).

This year's All-Star game is Sunday night in Ottawa.
