Columbus Blue Jackets have typo on helmet logo

The Columbus Blue Jackets busted out their third uniforms on Saturday night, but unfortunately for Michael Chaput, there was a serious spelling mistake on his helmet logo.  How sports teams end up with misspellings on their uniforms, I will never know.  Someone better inform Chaput that he plays for “Clumbus” now, wherever that is.

Blue Jackets’ Helmet Decal Reads ‘Clumbus,’ Joins Nashville ‘Perds’ in NHL Spelling Blunders (Photo)

Get Pat Sajak on the line because Columbus would like to buy a vowel. Wearing their third uniforms on Saturday night, the Blue Jackets stepped up their alternate game by really committing to the theme, throwing in an alternate spelling to the city that they call home. Although Columbus was spelled correctly on everyone else’s headgear, Michael Chaput‘s equipment didn’t go...

A win two lose two Thursday

Ryan Graves (Jean Francois Plante) It was a "win 2 lost 2" Thursday for the New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects. Two teams earning wins badly needed them starting with Ryan Graves (NYR 2013 4th) and his Charlottetown Islanders who entered their game against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on a 7 game winless streak. Graves was returning from his double game misconduct...

It sure wasn't sunny on Sunday

Sunday was the total opposite of Saturday night as where there was solid performances on Saturday night, Sunday was just weak. 4 New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects played on Sunday with just 1 goal and if not for a head to head matchup then odds are good that there would have been 4 losses. Anthony Duclair (NYR 2013 3rd) and his Quebec Remparts were hosting Loic...

Blue Jackets beat Islanders 5-2 to end 5-game skid

Ryan Johansen and Brandon Dubinsky each had a goal and two assists, and the Columbus Blue Jackets beat the New York Islanders 5-2 on Saturday night to snap a five-game losing streak. Cam Atkinson and R.J. Umberger also scored for the Blue Jackets, who pulled away with three goals in the third period. James Wisniewski added an empty-net goal and an assist. The line of Dubinsky,...

Islanders' Vanek leaves with upper-body injury

New York Islanders left wing Thomas Vanek left the game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday after a 23-second opening shift in the first period due to an upper-body injury. He did not return. Pierre-Marc Bouchard took Vanek's place on a line with Kyle Okposo and John Tavares. There was no official update after the game, but Newsday reported Vanek will not be in the...

Blue Jackets' helmet has "Clumbus" typo

Move over Perds, there's a new typo in town. The Columbus Blue Jackets sported their alternate uniforms on Saturday night and things went pretty well as the club cruised to a 5-2 victory over the New York Islanders. There was just one humorous problem.  As seen in this photo of Michael Chaput, the Columbus on his helmet was missing the rather important "O" and instead...

New York Islanders Thomas Vanek leaves game after injury.

The New York Islanders left winger Thomas Vanek left their game against the Columbus Blue Jackets on Saturday after a quick 23-second shift in the first period due to an upper body injury. The Islander said that he will not return. Pierre-Marc Bouchard took his place on a line with Kyle Okposo and John Tavares. Vanek was brought to New York after being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres...

With Another Blue Jackets Loss Comes Questions

from Michael Arace of the Columbus Dispatch, Is Cam Atkinson learning to play like Marian Gaborik? Shudder at the thought. Gaborik makes $7 million, and we haven’t even seen him turn on the jets this season. If one must float, one must score. Is R.J. Umberger happy with one goal a month? Do the Jackets miss injured Matt Calvert this much? Do they miss Keith Acton...

Saturday Night A Much Better Night

Taylor Cammarata (Minnesota Golden Gophers) Saturday night was a much better night for the New York Ranger and New York Islander prospects as we had two 3 point games, two 1st stars and an "excuse me" goal that sealed a win. All in all a fun night of hockey even if not everyone won their games. First Star Taylor Cammarata Minnesota Golden Gophers OK so I am very...

Just another ugly Friday night

#26 Steven Fogarty (John Autey Pioneer Press) It sure was not a night for highlight reel hockey from the New York Ranger or New York Islander prospects as 12 prospects dressed to play in 8 games with 1-4-5 to show for it. Sorry but we are past the point of the season where one can use the excuse that it is still early in the season. We are simply just not seeing strong enough consistent...

No contract extension talks with Andrew MacDonald just yet

Aside from Thomas Vanek, the Isles have a pending UFA in defenseman Andrew MacDonald, who is coming off perhaps the most below-market deal anywhere in the NHL (he’s making $550,000 this season).

Jan Levine: Game 16: NYR 4 CMB 2, This Reunion Was a Good One, View on Pyatt Hit

The Rangers completed their back-to-back contests against Pittsburgh and Columbus with a 4-2 win against the Blue Jackets on Thursday. Overall, I thought New York played a solid game, though was not in love with the strategy employed in the third where it looked like the team went into a shell. With their fifth win in six games, the Rangers finally evened their mark at 8-8, and with...

Dan Petriw: Isles head into the eye of the storm

The Islanders will try again tonight to find some consistency to their 2013/2014 season as they battle the Carolina Hurricanes in Raleigh. The Islanders are hoping to bounce back from a 6-2 drubbing at the hands if the Capitals Tuesday night. As Islanders head coach Jack Capuano hinted post game Tuesday, the Isles will have some lineup changes tonight. Aaron Ness and Colin McDonald...

Islanders-Blue Jackets Preview

The Columbus Blue Jackets are enduring their longest losing streak in two seasons, causing coach Todd Richards to say that "the gloves gotta come off" in order to motivate his team. New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano is looking to somehow kick-start his team's floundering power play. The Blue Jackets will try to avoid losing six straight in regulation for the first...
