At least the Blue Jackets have a new scoreboard to look at

Aug 27, 2012, 1:02 PM EDT

Since it’s still summer and August is always a bummer for hockey news, even when there isn’t labor strife, that means we get to share with you the beauty of technology.

In this case it’s the brand new high-definition scoreboard Columbus Blue Jackets fans will get to gaze upon at Nationwide Arena. As Rob Mixer from the Blue Jackets’ website tells us, it’s part of the “Dispatch Media Center” and also includes six smaller screens along the arena’s back wall to provide stats and other information.

It’s an impressive step-up and comes just in time for the 2013 NHL All-Star Game that the team and city hope will still occur.

Here’s video of what it all looks like. Here’s to hoping they have these things cannon-blast protected.

    To bad they’ll never be able to put up numbers for the crowd to see it in use. Lol I’m just kidding.

      Can we start to block guys for spamming too?

      I don’t understand what “reblogged this” means. Isn’t that an admission to plagiarism? Also, PHT, you must start blocking these guys.

      He’ll trade it for a hotdog and a soda to New York…

      …and no I’m not saying the Jackets got taken that bad on that “fair trade” but one would be crazy to say it came out even…

    Well since the team sucks at least the 14 fans that go to games will be able to see crystal clear Nash goals for the New York Rangers. We stole him from CBJ. Thanks Columbus!!
