Columbus Blue Jackets wear ‘Thank You Fans’ jerseys during warmups


While this won’t exactly ease the pain of the lockout, it’s a nice gesture.  The jerseys that were worn during the warmups before their game against the Red Wings were raffled off during the game to some lucky fans.

For their home opener there were some other giveaways to show their appreciation.  The Blue Jackets also gave away “2 for 1” tickets, free T-shirts, a magnet and free food vouchers.

After the 2005 lockout, nothing was given out, teams just put “Thank You Fans” on the ice. This time around, teams decided to take a different approach and were apparently encouraged by the NHL to go the extra mile and give the fans something tangible.
