NHL Hockey: Carolina Hurricanes @ Columbus Blue Jackets


November 29, 2018


The Columbus Blue Jackets invite fans to kick off the club’s 2018-19 season by visiting the Opening Night Plaza Party, presented by Nationwide, on Friday, October 5 before the Jackets host Metropolitan Division opponent Carolina Hurricanes at 7 p.m. The party on the Front Street plaza starts at 3 p.m. and game tickets are not required to attend.

A central attraction of the plaza party is the Nationwide “blue carpet” arrival of the Blue Jackets. Fans are invited to line up and welcome the players as they proceed across the plaza and into the front doors of Nationwide Arena. Arriving in Lexus vehicles, most players are expected between 3:30-5 p.m.

Other highlights of the event include live broadcasts starting with Sports Radio 97.1 The Fan’s Common Man & T-Bone show from 3-6 p.m., followed by FOX Sports Ohio’s expanded edition of the Blue Jackets Live pre-game show hosted by Brian Giesenschlag and Bill Davidge starting at 6 p.m.
