Our coverage of the Columbus Blue Jackets begins on Friday, October 15 when the Blue Jackets begin the home portion the season with a 7pm match-up against the Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks.
With 37 home games and 38 away contests, the schedule continues to emphasize division rivalries as the Blue Jackets will face off several times against Central Division opponents Chicago, Detroit, Nashville and St. Louis.
The FOX Sports Ohio/Blue Jackets broadcast team features play-by-play announcer Jeff Rimer alongside color analyst Bill Davidge. Returning to the Blue Jackets broadcasts for his second season is John Michael, former play-by-play voice and host for the AHL’s Lake Erie Monsters, as the broadcast’s in-game reporter.
Coverage each game night will begin with Blue Jackets Live pre-game show, presented by Central Ohio Toyota Dealers, featuring highlights, player interviews and analysis 30 minutes prior to each game. And immediately following the final horn, the coverage will continue with the post-game edition of Blue Jackets Live, presented by IGS Energy. Ray Crawford will host the pre- and post-game shows live from Nationwide Arena for home games and from the FOX Sports Ohio studio for road games.
