The 2013–14 Columbus Blue Jackets season is the 14th season for the National Hockey League franchise that was established on June 25, 1997.[2] They will now be playing in the Eastern Conference as a member of the Metropolitan Division. As a result of their move to the Metropolitan Division, the Blue Jackets became the fourth "Big 4" sports league team from Ohio to share a division with a team from Pittsburgh. The others are the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns of the National Football League and the Cincinnati Reds of Major League Baseball - Ohio teams and Pittsburgh teams have generally been rivals over the years. The Blue Jackets also made it to the playoffs, making it the second time in their franchise's history to qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

  • c The San Jose Sharks' second-round pick went to the Columbus Blue Jackets as the result of a trade on June 30, 2013 that sent a second-round pick in 2013 (44th overall) to Pittsburgh in exchange for a third-round pick in 2013 (89th overall) and this pick.[46] Pittsburgh previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on June 30, 2013 that sent Tyler Kennedy to San Jose in exchange for this pick.[47]
  • d The Pittsburgh Penguins’ third-round pick went to the Columbus Blue Jackets as the result of a trade on June 30, 2013 that sent a second-round pick in 2013 (44th overall) to Pittsburgh in exchange for San Jose’s second-round pick in 2013 (50th overall) and this pick.[46]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Six minutes into the Blue Jackets vs. Stars game on March 10, Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the Dallas bench due to a cardiac incident. Shortly afterwards, the two teams decided to postpone the game, due to the emotional effects Peverley's collapse had on players and coaches of both teams. At the time of postponement, the Blue Jackets held a 1–0 lead due to a goal by Nathan Horton, with assists from Matt Calvert and James Wisniewski. The NHL later decided that the game should be replayed on April 9 in its entirety (full 60 minutes of regulation, plus any time, if necessary, for overtime or shootout). However, Columbus will be allowed to start the game with the 1–0 lead it had at the time of the original game's postponement. All statistics from the March 10 game will be expunged from NHL records, except for Horton's goal and its assists.
