Published November 7, 1997
The name of the new Columbus NHL expansion team will likely be the Blue Jackets, according to Wright & Merz of the COLUMBUS DISPATCH. A source told the DISPATCH that the team is "95 percent sure" of the name and that the primary team color "will be blue." The logo will feature an insect with a hat on and the hat "could be a Union Army hat." The source: "It's an insect with an attitude. That's the best way I can say it" (COLUMBUS DISPATCH, 11/7)
