Amid the celebration of their inaugural season, Columbus Blue Jackets’ affiliate the Chicago Express seek to establish themselves as an ECHL force against North Division rivals Toledo and Cincinnati. Points machine Blair Riley leads Chicago’s prolific offense, building on his 2010 campaign in Las Vegas that included 20 goals, 20 assists, and one impressive fight against a trash-talking slot machine. Recognized as the first player signed in franchise history, veteran defenseman Nathan Lutz thwarts offensive attacks, and goalie Rob Nolan stands as a masked stronghold between supersonic shots and the net. As an added bonus, Saturday’s game against the Cyclones is country night, where fans can enjoy free giveaways, pony rides, and a bonfire that doubles as a kiln for freshly sculpted mascot heads. Also, the first 1,500 to enter the arena will receive free fleece blankets.
