CBJ Foundation\'s Hats For Heroes Night A Success
Blue Jackets Honored \'Heroes\' at Jan. 27 Game Vs. Minnesota<\/span>

Columbus Blue Jackets hosted several of their Hats For Heroes “heroes” – young children battling pediatric cancer and life threatening illnesses – at the Blue Jackets game vs. Minnesota on Friday. Columbus won the game, 4-3.

Limited edition Hats For Heroes hats were on sale in eight locations throughout Nationwide Arena, with all proceeds benefiting the pediatric oncology unit at Columbus Children’s Hospital and other organizations dedicated to the fight against pediatric cancer.

Six of the Blue Jackets heroes participated in pre-game and in-game activities such as dropping the ceremonial puck, riding the zamboni, and serving as stick boy.

In addition, the Blue Jackets hosted a group of their heroes and their families in a suite for the night before visiting with them following the game.

The Hats For Heroes hats – available in red or navy blue - feature the Blue Jackets’ third jersey silver star logo on the front with the original Hats For Heroes logo on the back. Hats were purchased for $15 each, or $20 with a player’s autograph.

All-Star hats signed by Rick Nash, Nikolai Zherdev, Adam Foote, Jody Shelley, and Sergei Fedorov were sold for $50.

Since the inception of the Hats For Heroes program five years ago, more than $200,000 has been raised for the Columbus Children’s Hospital’s pediatric oncology unit. is the official Web site of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
