COLUMBUS, OHIO – The Columbus Blue Jackets and television partner FSN Ohio released the 2005-06 telecast schedule as the network will once again carry 75 regular season games live beginning on Wednesday, October 5, when the Blue Jackets open their fifth National Hockey League season at Washington with a 7 p.m. game against the Capitals. The schedule also includes, for the first time, a preseason telecast as FSN Ohio will carry this Sunday's game between the Blue Jackets and Chicago Blackhawks from the United Center in Chicago.

FSN Ohio has been the television home of the Blue Jackets since the club joined the NHL in 2000. After carrying 65 games during the first three seasons, the network increased its coverage of the Blue Jackets to 75 games in 2003-04 and will bring exciting NHL action to over 5.2 million households in Ohio, Kentucky and West Virginia.

Fans can get a first look at the upcoming season when FSN Ohio airs the Blue Jackets Preseason Special on Friday (Sept. 23) at 7 p.m. with replays on Saturday (Sept. 24) at 12:30 p.m. and 6 p.m.

"The Blue Jackets are proud to be teaming up with FSN Ohio for another exciting season of Blue Jackets hockey," said the club's Senior Vice-President of Business Operations Larry Hoepfner. "The Blue Jackets, FSN Ohio and NHL are embarking on a new era that will include more access for our viewers to our players and coaches and to the game, than ever before."

FSN Ohio will air 39 home games and 36 away contests during the 2005-06 regular season. Highlights of this year's television schedule include 30-of-32 highly charged games against Central Division rivals Detroit, St. Louis, Nashville and Chicago. The schedule also features each of the team's 10 inter-conference games against Eastern Conference opponents, including a January 11 clash against Mario Lemieux, Sidney Crosby and the Pittsburgh Penguins and a January 13 contest against the defending Stanley Cup champion Tampa Bay Lightning.

"As the television home of the Blue Jackets, FSN Ohio is thrilled to welcome back the team this year," said FSN Ohio Senior Vice-President and General Manager Steve Liverani. "FSN Ohio continues to be the place to turn for anything related to this young, talented Blue Jackets club."

Blue Jackets hockey on FSN will have a new look in the booth in 2005-06 as Jeff Rimer begins his first year as play-by-play broadcaster, while Brian Engblom joins the Blue Jackets-FSN Ohio team as color analyst. Rimer brings 30-plus years experience to the booth, including 28 covering the NHL, and the past 16 calling play-by-play action on television for the Florida Panthers and Washington Capitals. Engblom, who won three Stanley Cup championships as a player with the Montreal Canadiens during an 11-year NHL career, spent 10 seasons as an analyst on ABC and ESPN NHL broadcasts before joining the Blue Jackets-FSN Ohio team.

FSN Ohio coverage each game night begins with Ice Breaker, a 30-minute pre-game show hosted by Jeff Hogan and Jim Day, and includes Blue Jackets Ice Cap, a post-game show that features highlights, player interviews and analysis immediately following each game.
