Nationwide Arena was supposed to be the site of the 2013 All-Star Game, but the latest lockout ruined that dream. Here’s a little spiel from the Blue Jackets:

“The All-Star celebration is a marquee event featuring the best players in the world and the Blue Jackets are thrilled to be able to bring it to Central Ohio for our fans and community,” Blue Jackets majority owner John P. McConnell said in a statement. “Columbus and the arena district offer an unmatched setting for this celebration of hockey and the NHL’s commitment to having the event here speaks volumes about the support of our fans and the strength of our market.”

So, is it too early to discus who will host the 2016 edition? Go ahead, you know you want to.
