Let the games begin.

The Blue Jackets' prospects have returned from a third-place finish in Traverse City, and now, training camp beckons. The 2019-20 NHL season is but a few weeks away and the first preseason game is less than a week away – Tuesday, Sept. 17 against the Buffalo Sabres at Nationwide Arena. 

Columbus plays a seven-game preseason schedule, with four of those games at Nationwide Arena. Opening night against the Toronto Maple Leafs is Oct. 4 at 7 p.m. 

Here's a bullet-point rundown of the Blue Jackets' camp roster:

  • 59 total players in camp
  • 36 forwards
  • 17 defensemen
  • Six goaltenders
  • Fitness testing Thursday
  • First on-ice session Friday
  • All Ice Haus practices open to the public

Reminder: the Blue Jackets are inviting fans to their first open practice, set for Saturday (9 a.m. start) at the OhioHealth Ice Haus. The first 1,000 fans receive a long sleeve t-shirt courtesy of OhioHealth.
