This Week in Blue Jackets History: October 14-21

This Week in Blue Jackets History we feature Jody Shelley, David Vyborny, Adam Foote and Fredrik Modin. We begin with a moment in CBJ history which we forgot to include in last week's group, the first ever third jersey.


October 13, 2003 – The Blue Jackets get a fresh look as the team's third jersey is unveiled during a ceremony outside of Nationwide Arena. The new threads prove to be inspirational – Columbus beats the high-flying Vancouver Canucks 3-2 in the team's first ever game wearing the third jersey.

October 14, 2002 – On this night, Jody Shelley begins a franchise record for the most consecutive games with an even or plus rating. From October 14 through to December 19, a stretch of 27 games, the bruising Blue Jackets forward posts a plus-four rating.


October 15, 2000 – Just days into their inaugural NHL season, the Blue Jackets achieve an interesting first in the team history, courtesy of David Vyborny. The skilled Czech forward takes the first ever Columbus penalty shot, successfully converting his chance against Chicago's Robbie Tallas


October 21, 2005 and 2006 – Captain Adam Foote scores the first goal of his Blue Jackets career after signing as a free agent in the 2005/06 season. Foote's marker helps Columbus ice a 4-1 win over the San Jose Sharks. Exactly one year later on Oct. 21, 2006, Blue Jackets newcomer Fredrik Modin also notches his first ever goal in a Blue Jackets uniform.
