THE COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS BACK IN ACTION TONIGHT AT CHICAGO, GAME TIME 8 PM.


FOR THE PAST 5 YEARS, CBJ DEFENSEMAN SCOTT HARRINGTON, 27 YEARS OLD, HAS BEEN THE TEAM MVP. HE GOES DAYS, WEEKS AND GAMES WITHOUT PLAYING. BUT STAYS READY ON THE TEAM’S TAXI SQUAD. BUT WHEN HE DOES PLAY, HE ALWAYS PLAYS GOOD DEFENSE, KILLS POWER PLAYS, SCORES A GOAL OR ASSISTS ON A GOAL. HE NEVER COMPLAINS AND IS LOVED BY TEAMMATES, TEAM MANAGEMENT AND THE COACHING STAFF. HE HAS BEEN WITH THE JACKETS SINCE THE 2016-17 SEASON.

Harrington’s first goal of the season occurred in just his second game of the season. He has a 1-1-2 line in those games.
