The Cannon Top 25 Under 25 - #15 Lukas Sedlak

Sedlak, back on a one year deal, looks to make his mark at the center position. Lukas Sedlak, former 5th round draft pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets, plays a strong defensive game from the center position. He played as the Cleveland Monster’s top defensive center last season, registering 14-4-18 in 54 games, along with 27 PIM. In the playoffs, he scored nearly a point per game...

The Cannon Top 25 Under 25 - #16 Daniel Zaar

Looking back on the 2012 NHL draft class, it’s doubtful that anyone aside from the deepest of draft wonks recognized the name “Daniel Zaar” when the Blue Jackets selected him in the sixth round as the 212st overall pick. If you asked him, I suspect he’d be fine with that. The 22 year old Swede has built his game around getting to places he’s not expected, and making the...

The Cannon Top 25 Under 25 - #17 Paul Bittner

With their second round pick in 2015, the Columbus Blue Jackets selected left winger Paul Bittner from the Portland Winterhawks of the WHL. Bittner must have caught the attention of the Jackets due to his linemate - 2013 3rd Round Pick Oliver BJORKSTRAND. While BJORKSTRAND put up an eye-popping 63/55/118 line in 59 games in 2014-15, on the opposite side Bittner put up gaudy numbers...

2016-17 Season Preview: Columbus Blue Jackets

At this time last year, the Columbus Blue Jackets were a trendy pick to make a jump into the playoffs. Let's just say that almost any chance of that was shot down in the first two weeks of the season. The Blue Jackets starting 0-8 and lost the first 7 by at least 2 goals. The team was a complete mess leading them to fire their coach and hire John Tortorella, who let's just say...

How will the addition of Sam Gagner impact the Columbus Blue Jackets?

The Columbus Blue Jackets announced the signing of center Sam Gagner yesterday.

Is it time for the Blue Jackets to trade Sergei Bobrovsky?

What should the Columbus Blue Jackets do with Bob? The Blue Jackets long had a goalie carousel of underachievers that ended with Steve Mason imploding.
