Columbus Blue Jackets History

The Columbus Blue Jackets — whose name pays tribute to Ohio's substantial contributions to the Union army during the Civil War — joined the NHL as an expansion franchise in 2000.

The Blue Jackets played their first 12 seasons as a member of the Western Conference, making their first foray into the Stanley Cup Playoffs in 2008-2009 led by All-Star winger Rick Nash and Rookie of the Year goaltender Steve Mason.

NHL realignment saw the team move to the Eastern Conference in 2013-2014, and the Blue Jackets have since collected six winning seasons and qualified for the Stanley Cup Playoffs five times. Columbus was one of just three teams to earn playoff berths in four consecutive seasons from 2016-2020, joining the Boston Bruins and Washington Capitals.

In 2018-2019, the eighth-seeded Blue Jackets faced off against the Presidents' Trophy-winning and top-seeded Tampa Bay Lightning in the first round of the playoffs. The Blue Jackets shocked the heavily-favored Lightning as they became the first team in NHL history to earn a four-game sweep in the first round of the playoffs against a team with the league's best regular-season record.

Columbus Blue Jackets at Nationwide Arena

The Columbus Blue Jackets have played at Nationwide Arena since their inaugural season in 2000.

The Columbus Blue Jackets’ 2023–24 regular season kicks off in October at home as the Blue Jackets face off against the Philadelphia Flyers. The Blue Jackets play their final game of the regular season at home against Metropolitan Division opponents the Carolina Hurricanes. Here’s a list of key games to keep an eye on:

    Best game I’ve been to in a while

    by Ryan on 11/25/23Nationwide Arena - Columbus

    I was glad to see the Columbus bluejackets snap a 9 game losing streak to beat the Chicago Blackhawks who had the number one draft pick. The score was 7-3.

    I'm a fan of both teams, but since I'm originally from Michigan, I had to root for the Red Wings, but usually I'm a Blue Jackets fan!

    CBJ game

    by Steelers#43 on 10/18/23Nationwide Arena - Columbus

    Overall the game was great however the seats are very narrow, I'm not big by any standard and it was a tight fit and uncomfortable at Nationwide arena. There are lots of restaurants in the arena district to choose from.

    Blue Jackets Always a Fun Time

    by Mikeyboy58 on 9/28/23Nationwide Arena - Columbus

    As a longtime CBJ quarter season ticket holders, we wanted to bring our son and his wife to a game while they were in town. We picked up a couple of tickets near our current seats and we had a great time.

    Cheeseburger best part

    by L. M. on 4/16/23Nationwide Arena - Columbus

    Lackluster hockey game. Good view from upper bowl near goal. Clean, attractive arena. If you haven't been before, prepare yourself for the cannon blasts after Blue Jackets goals and National Anthem. We like to sit at the opposite end after sitting near it the first time. Nearby parking for only $15, cleared out very quickly since arena nowhere near a sellout. Best part was the larger-than-expected $10 cheeseburger which was tasty and hot, no line before the game but larger line at intermission. For 99 cents more, got a large serving of fresh, delicious French fries as well.

    Great arena, terrible fans

    by Tabby F. on 4/16/23Nationwide Arena - Columbus

    CBJ arena was stunning! A very well kept and expensive looking venue. Food and beverage choices were great. CBJ fans on the other hand, not great. Understandably upset as there was more opponent fans in the stands than CBJ. But, the lack of class and drinks being spilled on us was insane. We ignored them the whole time, and they persisted to get a rise out of our section, most of them leaving before their team even had a chance to win. Talking terribly about their own players. Stay at home if you’re going to just complain the whole time. I am a firm believer that if you want to talk trash about your own team, stay at home. If you go to a game and you’re paying so much to see YOUR team, have fun and realize it’s just a game. Especially since it was one of the last games of the season and they weren’t going to the playoffs.
