In NHL action tonight, the Columbus Blue Jackets are hosting the Los Angeles Kings. If you recall, the Blue Jackets’ ex-player and dissident-from-day-one Jeff Carter was recently traded to said Kings.
While the Blue Jackets have played at home since the trade, they decided to wait to offer this great promotion for a very special occasion – The Return of the King:
TONIGHT ONLY! Bring your Carter jersey to team store by end of 1st period, we’ll change nameplate to J.Johnson for FREE! Quantities limited.

What a fine way to say to the fans “We’ve got your back, everyone who assumed he’d be in the lineup for the next decade” while simultaneously flipping the bird at a guy who never wanted any part of their organization.
