The Columbus Blue Jackets announced the start of their training camp today, along with a complete roster of the 58 Blue Jackets scheduled to participate. The roster includes new teammates Jack Skille and Nathan Horton as well as many of CBJ’s new draft picks.

The team will take the ice for the first time on September 12 at the OhioHealth Ice Haus. Practices will be divided into two groups, the first scheduled to skate at 10 a.m. and the second at 12:15 p.m. All practices will be open to the public, as will the full-team scrimmage scheduled for 11 a.m. on September 14. For a complete schedule of practices and a look at the complete roster (including to which group each player has been assigned), see here.

Though regular season tickets don’t go up for sale until September 6, preseason tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at BlueJackets.com. CBJ will face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Buffalo Sabres, the Carolina Hurricanes, and the Minnesota Wild.

Molly is not an athlete. She quickly got used to winning the “Best Smile” award at her family's Summer Olympics (an award made up especially for her by her grandmother, who felt bad that she never won anything else). But as they say, "Those who cannot do, write about it from the sidelines and provide orange slices at half time."
