Believe it or not, it’s already almost Draft Week! The Blue Jackets, due to an icky season and deals, have 3 first-round picks this year. Those picks are in order of: 5th, 25th, and 32nt. So, do you want to party with your fellow 5th line? Nationwide Arena is offering fans the full experience, on July 23rd, the first night of the Draft.
Door’s open at 6PM. Select players will be available to meet, and sign items. You can enter yourself into drawings to win prizes during the event. And, quite possibly the best part, you can watch the 5th pick, live as it happens!
Although this will be a great celebration, regarding the future of the team, there will also be a bitter sweet tone to the night as well. The team has full plans to display a moving tribute, complete with items fans have left over the past week, to honor their fallen goaltender.
It is sure to be a memorable, and moving night, in Downtown Columbus.
