Blue Jackets | Surprising Sedlak on verge of NHL debut

Lukas Sedlak earned a spot on the Blue Jackets’ roster thanks to a solid training camp and an out-of-nowhere performance in the Lake Erie Monsters’ title run in the spring.

Blue Jackets | Bobrovsky playing with confidence

Sergei Bobrovsky’s mind and game are in a good place — or, at least a better one than they were a year ago at this time. The Blue Jackets goaltender flashed a smile that stretched goalpost to goalpost Tuesday when asked what lessons he learned from the start of last season when Bobrovsky famously said, “I have zero confidence right now” after four games.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-BLUE_NEWS"};

Blue Jackets | Tortorella aims at fixing team culture

Since the start of training camp, Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella has ended every practice by skating around the circle of players at center ice as they squat like frogs, stretching their groins.
