The 2012–13 Columbus Blue Jackets season is the 13th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 25, 1997.[2] The regular season was reduced from its usual 82 games to 48 due to a lockout.

Despite a big improvement, the Blue Jackets failed to qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs .

Off-season[edit]

Regular season[edit]

On February 12, 2013, the Blue Jackets relived GM Scott Howson of his duties after years of disappointing hockey in Columbus.[3] On February 13, Jarmo Kekalainen was hired as the new GM.[4] With his hiring, Kekalainen became the first European GM in NHL history.[5] The team picked up steam after the change at general manager, going 20-10-5 to end the season just narrowly missing out on a playoff spot.
