Perhaps the greatest golfer of all time (and Ohio native) Jack Nicklaus was on hand to drop the puck at Columbus' home opener
There are ceremonial puck drops throughout the NHL this week, but few might have the star power of that of the Columbus Blue Jackets. Yes, the Blue Jackets.
Legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, who hails from Upper Arlington, Ohio, and attended Ohio State University, was on hand to usher in the Blue Jackets' new season by dropping the puck for the ceremonial faceoff for the home opener against the Calgary Flames.
Nicklaus was wearing a No. 18 jersey, which denotes the number of majors he won over his illustrious career on the PGA Tour. Coincidentally, 18 is also the number of Blue Jackets forward and fellow former Buckeye R.J. Umberger.
Optimism for the Jackets is at an all-time high it seems. Nothing like bringing in one of sports' biggest icons to kick things off right.
