Columbus Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets was the winner of a name-the-team contest held by the team once Columbus was awarded a NHL franchise. No other states in the Union had more residents fight in the Civil War than Ohio. The Blue Jackets moniker is a reference to the blue uniforms Union troops wore in the line of duty.
