Bethany PCorrespondent IAugust 26, 2008

The Blue Jackets announced today their plan to honor John H. McConnell.  The Blue Jackets will be wearing a patch on their jerseys.

“Mr. Mac’s commitment to the Blue Jackets, our fans, and this community was deep-rooted and it will be a privilege for all of us to honor him this season and beyond. This mark will serve as a reminder to all of us to continue to work every day towards accomplishing the goals he set for this organization both on and off the ice.”

Mike Priest, Columbus Blue Jackets President

It is only right that the Jackets honor Mr. Mac.  I honestly can’t tell you how much I respect and admire this man.  Below is the patch that the Blue Jackets will be wearing. Also, all fans in attendance will be given a hat with the patch on it.
