The Columbus Blue Jackets announced today special activities being held in conjunction with the National Hockey League club hosting its sixth home opener on Friday, October 6, at Nationwide Arena against the Vancouver Canucks. Game time is set for 7 p.m. and doors open at 6 p.m.

On their way into Nationwide Arena, fans will be greeted by the energetic drum beats of the Bucket Boys, a group of Chicago-born street performers turned national touring act. A live, in-arena performance by the Bucket Boys will signal to fans the official start of the pre-game show beginning at 6:45 p.m.

This year’s Opening Night show features an elaborate video presentation, special effects, and a unique introduction of the 2006-07 Blue Jackets players and coaches. On the eve of their own inaugural season home opener at Nationwide Arena, members of the Ohio Junior Blue Jackets (USHL) will also be introduced individually during the pre-game festivities. Finally, Universal Records recording artist and lead singer of Saving Jane, Marti Dodson, will perform the U.S. and Canadian National Anthems.

As a commemorative giveaway, all fans in attendance will receive a 2006-07 Blue Jackets magnetic schedule, courtesy of Donatos, as well as a 2006-07 Ohio Junior Blue Jackets magnetic schedule. is the official Web site of the Columbus Blue Jackets.
