Blue Jackets season ticket sales are up after strong season

The Columbus Blue Jackets are already seeing good things happen thanks to their great finish this season.

While they missed out on the playoffs, according to Rusty Miller of the Associated Press, the team has seen season ticket sales jump up 13-percent from last season. Last season, the Blue Jackets had the worst record in the league and sold 7,000 season tickets and already this summer they’ve seen 1,000 new plans sold.

Seeing fans jump on board with the Jackets is a good thing as they’ve been a steady money-losing team over the last few seasons. Now with the team headed to the Eastern Conference next season and a division that will see them going head-to-head with the likes of the Rangers, Penguins, Flyers, Capitals, Islanders, Devils, and Hurricanes they’ll have to hope their winning ways this season won’t disappear against what should be stiffer competition against some of the leagues biggest stars.

If the Jackets can keep up the good feelings with realignment, those ticket sales should continue to jump up.

    No surprise. They have a good group backed by a Vezina-caliber goalie. That’s a recipe for success.

    It cant be emphasized enough how much realignment is going to help the Blue Jackets. More games in the eastern time zone will be a huge, huge benefit.
