COLUMBUS HOSTS ALL-STAR GAME FOR FIRST TIME
January 25, 2013

The city of Columbus is going to be hockey crazy this weekend as the small-market city will host the All-Star game for the first time. James Wisniewski will be the lone home-town representative, anchoring the blue line with recent Stanley Cup champion Drew Doughty. This will be Wisniewski's first ever All-Star appearance and the veteran blueliner couldn't be happier, although he wishes teammate R.J. Umberger, 2nd in the league in goal scoring, could join him but, unfortunately, Umberger was injured in Tuesday night's 1-0 win over Colorado. Umberger remains a question mark for Tuesday's game against Chicago.

The Columbus Blue Jackets head into the All-Star weekend on a roll, having won 4 straight, to push their record to 23-23-1, good for 10th place in the Western Conference.
